Robert Lewandowski

scored a hat-trick in

Bayern Munich

’s crushing 6-0 win over

Borussia Monchengladbach

on Saturday. The 32-year has scored 39 league goals this season, one goal less than

Gerd Muller

’s historic record for the most goals scored in a single Bundesliga season. In a post-match interview, the Polish star has spoken about his desire to break the record.

"I have the chance to break this record,"

Lewandowski said.

"It won't be easy, for sure. Ok, we have two games but if I want to break it, I have to score two goals.

"I have to work hard in the next game because I know it won't be easy. But to break the record would be something amazing for me as well because if you have 34 games – even less in my situation this season – it will be something.

"I have to believe it can happen. I have the chance. I have to be ready for this."

Bayern won their ninth consecutive Bundesliga title on Saturday.

Borussia Dortmund

’s 3-2 win over

RB Leipzig

confirmed Bayern’s title before their match against Gladbach. Asked about his team’s league title, Lewandowski responded:

"We knew one hour before the game for sure that we were already champions," added Lewandowski, who has now scored 201 Bundesliga goals for Bayern – after Muller (365 for Bayern), he is only the second player in league history to net 200-plus goals for a single team.

"But for us, it was more important to show on the pitch why we are champions and to show the best football. What we did during the game was spectacular, it was amazing because we scored so many goals. We showed that we are the best this season."
