Borussia Dortmund's Robert Lewandowski celebrates a goal against Freiburg during the German first division Bundesliga

Bundesliga top scorer Lewandowski, who took his tally to 19 goals, grabbed his first goal of the day when he headed in a smooth Nuri Sahin free kick in the 41st minute to level.

He drilled in his second in first-half stoppage time with a low drive from inside the box before also setting up Dortmund's fifth goal in the 78th with a fine run down the left and a well-timed pass in front of goal for Leonardo Bittencourt.

The previous Dortmund record stretched back to the 1964/65 season when the late Friedhelm 'Timo' Konietzka scored in seven consecutive Bundesliga games.

Lewandowski is among the most sought-after strikers in Europe and German media have long speculated that he will move south to Bayern Munich after refusing to sign a contract extension. His current deal runs out in 2014.
