It took 182 games for the Polish star to pull off the feat, and the striker had donned a shirt emblazoned with the magic number underneath his normal strip, just in case.
“It was my idea,” he said of the secret shirt. I had a feeling that I'd score a goal on Tuesday. I only hope that it's not the last one,” he said after the match.
The Pole has become the sixth ever Dortmund player to reach 100 goals for the team.
Time was running out for the 25-year-old, as Lewandowski is due to transfer to Bayern Munich this summer, and he has just four more Bundesliga games with Borussia Dortmund.
His goal on Tuesday came in the 43rd minute, when team-mate Marco Reus found the Pole unmarked and Lewandowski slammed his ball into the top left-hand corner of the net.
“I'm happy about every goal, although this was a special one,” he said.
Polish fans are keeping fingers crossed that Lewandowski will be able to weave some magic for Poland this September, when the qualifying matches begin for Euro 2016. (nh)
