Robert Lewandowski set a new single-season standard for non-German internationals in the Bundesliga, becoming the first to break the 30-goal barrier.

In Bayern Munich's season finale against Hannover, Lewandowski scored in the 12th minute to hit the milestone, as the four-time reigning Bundesliga champions got off to a good start in sending Pep Guardiola out in style at Allianz Arena before he departs for Manchester City. 

Lewandowski benefited from a couple of deflections on his goal–first a cross from Kinglsey Coman that took a bounce to him, then one off a defender on his shot–to score, but it set the tone for a cakewalk during Bayern's coronation and capped Lewandowski's golden-boot-winning season. Mario Gotze added a pair of goals as well, and Bayern was up 3-0 before the hour mark.

Bayern held on to win 3-1 and then enjoyed its fourth straight trophy ceremony, showing off its new silverware to its home fans.

Bayern still has one more match, next Saturday against rival Dortmund in the final of the DFB Pokal (German Cup)
