Erling Haaland or Robert Lewandowski: who is the best striker in the Bundesliga?

Before the arrival of Erling Haaland, Robert Lewandoski was the best striker in the Bundesliga but all that was put up to debate with his arrival from RB Salzburg on the 1st of January 2020.

Let's look at how the two have fared, Erling Haaland has 13 goals and four assists for Borussia Dortmund across all competitions this season while Robert Lewandoski has 15 goals and one assist for Bayern Munich in all competitions this season. 

It's no doubt the 21-year-old Norwegian international is more lethal in front of goal than Robert. Both are regarded as goal machines but the Polish striker looks to be on the wrong side of age. At the age of 33 Robert doesn't seem to know when to stop scoring and he's a role model for a lot of strikers. 

Judging by the individual worth in the transfer market. Erling Haaland is said to be the most valuable player with a market value of €150m and Robert Lewandoski is valued around €60m which is a decent price for any player that's 33-year-old. 

The debate is one that will linger on with both scoring a brace this weekend after the international break. When asked to choose it will ball down to preference as both always show up when needed.
