Lewandowski scored 33 goals in just 30 Bundesliga games this campaign, both of which were his last in the first half at the Allianz Arena as Bayern secured a 3-1 advantage at the break. There was no further goal in the second half.
Gabonese star Aubameyang scored 31 in the 2016/17 season for Borussia Dortmund before moving to his current club Arsenal in the English Premier League.
With only one round of matches left, Lewandowski is still a long way from an outstanding record of 40 years, the legendary Bayern Munich and German striker Gerd Mueller in the 1971-72 season.
But with 48 goals in 41 games in all competitions this season, Lewandowski has plenty of opportunities to improve his overall numbers as Bayern face Bayer Leverkusen in the German Cup final on July 4 before continuing with their candidates to win the League champion which continues in August,
Lewandowski is the top scorer in Europe’s most elite competition this season with 11 goals in six games, his latest match against Chelsea in the first game of the last 16 encounter that Bayern won 3-0 at Stamford Bridge in February.
Meanwhile, the second most prolific Bundesliga scorers went head-to-head while Tim Werner’s RB Leipzig hosted Borussia Dortmund Erling Braut Haaland.
The 19-year-old Haaland, who is also linked to many of Europe’s biggest clubs, has scored 13 goals in 14 games since joining Dortmund from RB Salzburg last December.
Werner stays for 26 days in the Bundesliga season, second only to Lewandowski.
The consolation for Leipzig, which runs to the last eight Champions Leagues, was the 2-0 defeat for Bayer Leverkusen at Hertha Berlin.
He left Leverkusen a three-point advantage for Leipzig in the fight for automatic qualifying spots for next season’s Champions League with just one round and a huge inferior goal difference.
By the way, it looks very dark for Werder Bremen, with a 3-1 defeat in Mainz, which left the second bottom of the north flank and a two-point advantage to Fortuna Dusseldorf who is in the playoff playoffs.
Brighton astonishes Arsenal
Meanwhile in the English Premier League, Aubameyang’s Arsenal suffered their second deadly defeat in four days as Neal Maupay scored deep into injury to bring Brighton a 2-1 win over the Gunners.
Nicolas Pepe with a great shot in the 68th minute at the Amex Stadium threw in the rival side of Mikel Artet, but home defender Lewis Dunk capitalized on the suspect Arsenal who defended for the equalizer seven minutes later.
It looked like the end of the square until Aaron Connolly skillfully helped the ball to Maupay who finished neatly.
This triggered an ugly incident while Maupay, who was in an air challenge with Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno in a first-half clash in which the German stretched in agony, was embroiled in an altercation with Matteo Guendouzi in a mess of players at the last whistle,
Maupay said after the match that he had no intention of hurting Leno, but had little sympathy for the other teammates claiming they “got what they deserved” because they didn’t show more humility after Pepe’s opening goal.
Earlier, relegation fighters Watford scored the final jump to equalize to deny Leicester City’s third-placed win in a 1-1 draw on Vicarage Road.
England international Ben Chilwell seemed to score the visitors’ victory with an astonishing left-footed shot in the 89th minute, but Craig Dawson saved a precious point for the Hornets just a minute later.
