Robert Lewandowski came off the bench to score a record-breaking FIVE goals in nine minutes to stun Wolfsburg and go top of the Bundesliga.
Wolfsburg had been deservedly leading at the break courtesy of a well-taken Daniel Caligiuri goal midway through the first half.
But Lewandowski then put on a stunning individual performance to score the fastest hat-trick in Bundesliga history and become the fastest player to score five goals in one game.
