How did Lewandowski's Barcelona perform this season?

This season, the Catalan giants failed to mount a proper title defence, trailing behind Madrid by more than 10 points and losing the La Liga crown to their fiercest rivals.

While they are set to complete the current campaign as the second-best club in the Spanish top flight, La Blaugrana were eliminated from the Copa del Rey by eventual winners, Athletic Bilbao.

Additionally, they were knocked out of the UEFA Champions League in the quarter-finals by a Kylian Mbappe-led Paris Saint-Germain, leaving Barca without a trophy in Lewandowski's second season with the club.

Despite uncertainties surrounding his future and that of manager, Xavi Hernandez, the 35-year-old forward remains committed to staying with Barcelona at the start of next season, per 90Min.

Lewandowski predicts doom for Real Madrid

Looking ahead to the 2024-25 campaign, he has urged his teammates to be ready for Madrid's anticipated struggles.

He is confident that their rivals will endure a tough start, even with the expected addition of Mbappe to an already formidable attack.

"We have to be ready from the first game and the first minutes because Real Madrid will surely need time," Lewa said, as quoted by Madrid Universal.
"They will not play well at the beginning and will lose points. We have to take advantage of it," he ended.

Lewandowski ready for Mbappe faceoff in La Liga

In a related publication, Sports Brief reported on Lewandowski's readiness to face Kylian Mbappe in La Liga ahead of the PSG star's rumoured move to Real Madrid.

The Barcelona forward asserted that the Catalan giants were not intimidated by the prospect of his signing, despite praising the Frenchman as an incredible player.

Although both Mbappe and Real Madrid are yet to confirm the rumours, all signs are pointing towards the French national captain joining Los Blancos next term.
