Lewandowski Scores Again As Bayern Maintain 100% Record With Win In Kyiv

Posted by

Bayern Munich kept their perfect record in Group E against Dynamo Kyiv, with Robert Lewandowski scoring for the ninth time in as many games. With an overhead kick, the Poland striker gave Bayern the lead, putting them eight points ahead of Barcelona in the group.

Kyiv’s first goal of the tournament was scored by Denys Harmash, but they were unable to produce an equalizer.

A right-wing cross bounced off a defender’s leg, and the striker volleyed home with his left foot.

With the goal, the 33-year-old became the first player in Champions League history to score in nine consecutive games twice, having previously done so in August 2020. Both Ruud van Nistelrooy and Cristiano Ronaldo have done it once.

Kyiv, who had only one point in their previous four games, hit the post with a 1-0 lead when Manuel Neuer missed a Leon Goretzka back-pass as he sought to clear the ball. After the half, Kyiv were superb, forcing Neuer to make an early save before replacement Harmash completed a brilliant play to cut the gap.

They pushed for an equaliser, with captain Serhiy Sydorchuk’s shot from just outside the area saved and Viktor Tsyhankov’s left-footed effort from distance touching the outside of the goal.
