ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI is aiming for the joy of six against Celtic this evening – and he wants to revel in the fun.

The Polish super striker has netted in all of his five competitive games – six strikes in total – at the Allianz Arena this season.

And the Hoops are in his sights as he aims to continue his devastating finishing in front of the Bavarian fans.

Lewandowski, who has claimed nine goals in eight Bundesliga outings in this campaign, said: “Naturally, it’s a very important game for us.

“Three points after two matches is not enough for us. 

“Playing on the front foot going and forward is the way to take on our opponents.”

The 29-year-old hitman was on the scoresheet again at the weekend when Jupp Heynckes celebrated his return as manager with a 5-0 win over Freiburg.

He added: “The coach wants us to focus on the details. In training sessions every pass and every shot is important.

“We have to remain focused. We need to go forward together as a team and have fun.”

Lewandowski has scored 10 goals in his last 12 Champions League games while claiming a total of 24 for the German giants.

And it’s been an interesting October for the fans’ favourite.

The international led Poland to next summer’s World Cup Finals, completed his university course and had a street in the southern Polish city of Kuznia Raciborska named after him.
