Robert Lewandowski arrived at FC Barcelona from Bayern Munich in the form of a world-class forward whose entire existence revolved around burying the ball in the back of the net. Some time has passed since that transfer in the summer, and the Polish striker has been nothing short of incredible.

Yet, despite his outstanding numbers holistically, it would not be wrong to suggest the player’s form as a goal scorer has declined relatively since the end of the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar, as he now seems to struggle more in finding proper connectivity with both the ball and his teammates when they look for him.

More precisely, this recent bad luck in front of the goal has persisted more so at home in the Spotify Camp Nou than it has elsewhere whenever away from home. The Polish striker has registered 0 goals and assists at Camp Nou over the last 6 home games, whereas he has scored 5 and assisted twice away from home in the last 6 games in all competitions.

Xavi Hernandez himself had the following to say regarding his star forward: He is in a very good moment, but before he was extraordinary. Perhaps we have to play with him even more.”

This is in line with the statistical data pre and post-World Cup stats of the player, but that is not to say that Robert Lewandowski becomes disposable for the squad. Despite his lack of goals at home for FC Barcelona due to opposing teams preferring to play a bit more conservatively at Camp Nou and thus negating most of Barca’s access through different passing channels to Lewandowski, he has been effective as a forward that excels at hold up play and connecting others on a more progressive forward run if he himself can not.

However, if Robert Lewandowski is to find his shooting boots at home once again, it will bring out a whole new dimension again to this Barcelona side, who have since spread out in terms of players willing to have a go at goal due to Lewandowski’s involvement becoming restricted. Now facing Cadiz, who have conceded 33 goals thus far this season, the FC Barcelona striker will be hoping to turn his fortunes around on home soil.
