Last Saturday evening, Robert Lewandowski was Barcelona‘s match-winner against RCD Mallorca away from home.

The Polish striker has been a revelation since joining the Catalan side from Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window.

Barcelona coughed up around €50 million to acquire the striker’s signature and he’s been worth every single penny thus far.

Lewandowski scored his ninth La Liga goal of the season to secure a precious 1-0 win over Mallorca, a victory which has seen the Blaugrana leapfrog Real Madrid at the top of the table.

And the 20th minute strike from the 34-year-old also saw him achieve yet another incredible personal milestone.

Lewandowski's winner at the Visit Mallorca Stadium was his 500th goal in club football and that's seen him join one of the sport's most exclusive clubs.

It was a slight surprise to see Messi miss out on a place in the top two, although the Paris Saint-Germain superstar will soon overtake Romario.

Who will reach 700 club goals first - Messi or Ronaldo?

The way the Argentine is playing right now, you wouldn't put it past him reaching 700 club goals before his eternal rival Ronaldo - who's currently warming the bench at Manchester United.

However, the Portuguese superstar only needs one more to reach the landmark and he could be offered the opportunity to get it by Erik ten Hag on Thursday evening.

Ronaldo will more than likely start for United in the team's latest UEFA Europa league group stage clash away at Omonia.
