The goal that broke the record wasn’t necessarily a classic, but it was symbolic of Robert Lewandowski’s form this season. With Bayern Munich on the counter, he received the ball on top of Union Berlin’s penalty area as two centerbacks quickly closed him down. Lewandowski technically lost possession as he looked to play a 1-2, but his intercepted pass ricocheted back to him perfectly in stride as he dribbled past the centerbacks and wrong-footed the keeper. The sequence displayed the requisite directness and intent in open space, along with a quick-thinking ruthlessness. With the goal, Lewandowski set a new Bundesliga record by scoring in nine straight league matches to open the season. Lewandowski currently leads the top-five European leagues in goalscoring with 20 goals in 14 competitive matches. We’ve grown accustomed to Lewandowski’s goal-scoring streaks: he has the record for the most goals in the Bundesliga by a non-German player. He’s scored the fastest hat-trick (3 minutes and 52 seconds), as well as

In contrast to a slow unraveling, Jan. 13th, 2014 stands as the symbolic turning point in AC Milan’s contemporary history. That was the day the club sacked Max Allegri. He would take over Juventus the following season and go on to win five consecutive Series A titles. Meanwhile, Milan are on their third ownership group and eighth manager in the five seasons since Allegri left the club, having gone through, in order: Clarence Seedorf, Filippo Inzaghi, Sinisa Mihajlovic, Cristian Brocchi, Vincenzo Montella, Gennaro Gattuso and Marco Giampaolo. Gattuso is the only manager to have lasted more than one year, with Giampaolo most recently setting a dubious record for the shortest reign in club history at 111 days. They’ve exhausted every type of manager ranging from former club legends groomed in the youth academy, experienced managers and young upstarts. Upon leaving, Allegri added he didn’t care whom the next coaches were as managing the club was no longer his problem.  “We have to be realistic,” warned the eight

A Liga MX match between Querétaro and Atlético San Luis was abandoned in its final minutes on Sunday as fans erupted into violence and chaos ensued. With visiting Querétaro leading 2-0 and just 5:00 remaining in the match, fans began to throw bottles and get into isolated fights in the stands. In what felt like a blink of an eye, the isolated fights turned into a battle royal where literally no one — children included — were spared. Videos from the match resemble some of a violent political uprising as opposed to a family friendly Sunday. Warning: Videos are loud and display extreme violence. ESPN reports that 37 people were injured in total and those looking to escape the violence rushed onto the field, leaving Querétaro to flee to the locker room where they were guarded by police and security for two hours. “It’s a situation that leaves us all sad and very worried,” said Atletico San Luis coach Gustavo Matosas in a news conference. “It’s something that we don’t want to see happen in football.” In a stateme
