Barcelona's 2024/25 title chances

Despite trailing El Clasico rivals and league leaders Real Madrid by 10 points, Barca sits in third place with 51 points.

While they have been ousted from the Copa del Rey, their remaining chance at silverware aside from La Liga rests in the UEFA Champions League, a title they last secured in 2015.

Realistically, La Blaugrana faces an uphill battle to add to their five European titles, starting with overcoming Italian champions SSC Napoli in the round of 16 across two legs.

Lewandowski's form this season

To achieve any triumph this season, departing Barcelona manager Xavi Hernandez will likely rely heavily on the goal-scoring prowess of Lewandowski.

The Polish striker, who claimed the club's top-scorer title last season, has faced criticism for his recent lack of goals.

However, with two goals in his last two appearances, Lewandowski appears to have regained his form at a crucial juncture of the season, aiming to sustain his momentum as the season approaches its climax.

In total, he has 21 goal contributions (15 goals and six assists) in 32 matches this season, as cited by Transfermarkt.

Lewandowski's bold title claim

Expressing his unwavering confidence, Lewandowski affirmed his determination to contribute to Barcelona's trophy ambitions this season despite the formidable challenges they face.

"Calmness and confidence. I am sure that we are going to win many games, and at the end of the season, we are going to win something," Lewy told the media as quoted by Tribuna.

Lewandowski reveals retirement plans

In a previous publication, Robert Lewandowski provided insight into his potential retirement from football, as reported by Sports Brief.

The Polish striker, who made the move to Barça in the summer of 2022 after an illustrious eight-year spell with Bundesliga powerhouse Bayern Munich, amassed an impressive 344 goals in 375 appearances across all competitions for the German club.

In an interview with Club del Deportista via Forbes, the seasoned striker discussed his retirement aspirations and whether he envisions a future as a coach after hanging up his boots.
