With fifteen matches played, FC Barcelona are having a good season in general. The Catalans are set to advance from the UEFA Champions League group stage, having won the first three of their matches, and are only four points behind the league leader Girona in La Liga.
Although this is not perfect, this is definitely an acceptable position for the club fans, especially keeping in view the very high number of injuries suffered by important players like Pedri, Frenkie de Jong, Araujo, Kounde, Raphinha, and Lewandowski.
Lewandowski unable to get back his form
Still, everything is not going exactly as planned, and one of the main problems for the team this season is the lack of improvement in Robert Lewandowski’s form. The Polish striker has had a complicated start to the season, as he has not been able to score as many goals as are expected from him.
Lewandowski made his return to the Barcelona starting lineup after a break with injury in this match, but this visit to Saint Sebastian was not as fruitful as his last visit to this stadium. The Pole remained on the pitch only for 57 minutes and was replaced by Ferran Torres.
Still not his worst start to a season
In his last three games, the Polish striker has been able to gather only 120 minutes, mainly because injury kept him from playing more. He played for 34 minutes against Porto, 29 minutes against Real Madrid, and another 57 against Real Sociedad, but his sensations are still not fully positive.
However, despite this form, there is everything to hope that Lewandowski will get back to his best soon. In fact, he has already had an even more difficult start to a season in 2014-15, when he had only four goals and two assists in the first twelve games. This season, Lewandowski has six goals and three assists in the same number of games.
