The race for the Bundesliga Golden Boot is well and truly on between Robert Lewandowksi and Timo Werner. The Bayern Munich hitman has scored 25 times this season while Red Bull Leipzig forward Timo Werner has bagged 21 goals so far. Dortmund's Jadon Sancho is third on that list with 14 strikes to his name. Lewandowski appears to be the frontrunner in this race as he looks to retain his Bundesliga top scorer award from last season when he netted 22 times.
