  • Robert Lewandowski was the subject of online trolls after his unorthodox attempt at goal-scoring
  • Lewy improvised with a different part of his body as he tried to score in Barcelona's La Liga tie with Almeria
  • His side managed to stave off the lowly-placed side, sealing a hard-fought 3-2 win on Wednesday night

Social media erupted with jests aimed at Robert Lewandowski after his unconventional goal-scoring attempt during Barcelona's final La Liga bout in 2023 against Almeria.

The Polish striker, typically a goal-scoring maestro, has been facing a recent drought in finding the net but played a pivotal role by assisting in the Catalan giants' hard-fought 3-2 triumph over the league's bottom-placed side.

Brazilian winger Raphinha struck first, breaking the deadlock after 30 minutes, only to see Almeria equalise through Leo Baptistao before recess.

A halftime shakeup by head coach Xavi Hernandez revitalised Barca's attack, with Sergi Roberto seizing an opportunity, assisted by Raphinha, to reclaim the lead in the 60th minute, GOAL reports.

However, Almeria levelled the score once again through Edgar Gonzalez, eliciting dismay from the home crowd.

But in the game's final twist, the under-fire Lewandowski connected with Roberto, who converted his chance inside the box, securing a crucial victory for Barca, per Eurosport.

Despite Lewandowski's assist contributing to La Blaugrana's win, the 35-year-old became a target for ridicule due to his earlier quirky attempt at goal in the 24th minute.

A slightly overhit cross prompted Lewandowski's unorthodox improvisation, turning his back and attempting to strike the ball with his backside, resulting in a spectacular and unsuccessful effort.

Here is the video:

Why Lewandowsky 'snubbed' Saudi Arabia move

Sports Brief also reported that Anna Lewandowska, the spouse of Barcelona's Robert Lewandowski, seems to have shed light on why the prolific Polish forward isn't keen on a move to Saudi Arabia.

Despite a tempting offer from a Saudi Pro League club in the summer of 2023, Lewandowski chose to turn down the opportunity, opting to remain with Barcelona.
