The striker, who joined Bayern Munich from Dortmund in the summer, believes Jurgen Klopp’s side have been unlucky so far this term and are still a team to fear
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski believes his former team Borussia Dortmund will bounce back from their poor start to the season and become a big rival for his side once again.
Jurgen Klopp’s team beat Bayern to the league title in 2010-11 and 2011-12 before finishing runners-up to the Bavarian giants in each of the following two seasons.
However, BVB have started the current campaign in terrible form, having taken just seven points from their opening seven matches, while Pep Guardiola’s side sit 10 points above them at the top of the table.
Lewandowski, though, who joined Bayern from Dortmund this summer, believes his old club will soon find their form and start to put pressure on his current side.
“They have very bad luck with injured players at the moment,” he told Bild. “But they are still a tough competitor for us, I’m sure.”
The Poland star was prolific with BVB, as he netted an incredible 103 times in 185 appearances, including a memorable four in one single Champions League fixture against Real Madrid.
Since signing for Bayern, he has scored four times in seven Bundesliga outings but had been the subject of criticism before his double against Hannover on October 4.
