Gündoğan and Lewandowski together again nine years later
The duo coincided at Borussia Dortmund from 2011 and 2014 and are now going to be sharing the FC Barcelona shirt
When Gündoğan meets his new team-mates, there are actually a number that he has already shared a dressing room with in the past: Robert Lewandowski, Eric Garcia, Ferran Torres and Marc-André ter Stegen.
64.60% win rate with Gündoğan and Lewy
Gündoğan and Lewandowskiplayed together for Borussia Dortmund between 2011 and 2014. Under Jürgen Klopp, they even reached the Champions League final in 2013, where they were beaten by an 89th minute winner for Bayern Munich, the club to which the Pole would eventually leave.
They played 74 games together and 64.6% of those were wins, and the team scored 2.4 goals a game.
Gündoğan is also familiar with Eric Garcia and Ferran Torres from their shared past at Manchester City. He and Garcia were together from 2018 to 2021 under Pep Guardiola, while the striker was at City from 2020 to the winter of 2021.
Two World Cups with Ter Stegen
And also, Gündoğan has played at international level with Marc-André ter Stegen, including two World Cups representing Germany (2018 and 2022). Oddly, however, they've never played at the Euros together. Gündoğan was there in 2012 and 2021, while Ter Stegen was in the 2016 squad.
