Robert Lewandowski turned 32 on Friday with the Bayern Munich striker in the form of his career and two short of Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of 17 goals in a Champions League season ahead of this weekend’s final against Paris Saint Germain.

The Munich squad sang Happy Birthday to Lewandowski before knuckling down in training ahead of Sunday’s showpiece in Lisbon.

Bayern’s birthday boy is having the best spell of his career as a clincially headed late goal to seal Wednesday’s 3-0 semi-final win over Lyon was his 55th this season.

Lewandowski is the Champions League’s top-scorer with 15 goals, two shy of Ronaldo’s record set in 2013/14 while at Real Madrid.
