All-Time Bundesliga Top Scorers – Top 3 Profiles
Gerd Muller – Bayern Munich
Muller’s 365 goals in 427 games is a magificent tally in a competition that has featured some of the world’s finest defenders.
‘Der Bomber’ was renowned for his clinical finishing from close range, possessing an uncanny knack of being in the right place at the right time.
Muller helped Bayern win the Bundesliga four times during his career and also contributed greatly to the club’s success in Europe.
Muller’s record of 40 goals during the 1971/72 season was finally bettered when Lewandowski bagged 41 during the 2020/21 campaign.
Robert Lewandowski – Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich
Muller’s place at the top of the all-time scorers list in the Bundesliga is no longer as assured, with Lewandowski setting the Bayern legend firmly in his sights.
His exploits in German football are all the more amazing when you consider his career could have gone down a different path had it not been for the eruption of a volcano in Iceland.
The Polish striker was close to signing for Blackburn Rovers from Lech Poznan in 2010, but an ash cloud prevented him from flying and he ended up with Dortmund.
If Lewandowski can steer clear of injuries over the next couple of years, he could come close to toppling Muller’s 365-goal tally.
Klaus Fischer – 1860 Munich, Schalke, Cologne, Bochum
Fischer ended his 19-year career in the Bundesliga as one of just 11 players to make over 500 appearances in the competition.
He scored more than 20 goals in six different seasons, but finished as the top scorer just once with a tally of 29 for Schalke in 1975/76.
He also once scored four for Schalke in a 7-0 demolition of Bayern, but ended his career without ever winning the Bundesliga.
