Robert Lewandowski

is at the peak of his form these days. He has been an irreplaceable member of Bayern for the past 7 years and has played a key role in the team's most important achievements.

The prolific striker also had a dazzling start to the Champions League and managed to score two goals in Bayern’s first group stage match against the Spanish giants Barcelona. The Polish star continued to shine, as he scored another brace against Dynamo Kyiv last night in the Bavarians second European clash.

The victory against Dynamo was of another importance for the 33-year-old star. He is now the only player in the history of the Champions League to have won 18 consecutive games in the tournament; Lewandowski had previously held the record with 17 consecutive wins alongside Bayern teammate Manuel Neuer, but now the talented frontman holds the record on his own.

It is worth mentioning that Bayern has faced some of the European giants in this period including Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona, ​​which doubles the importance of Lewandowski's record.

Of course, Bayern lost to Paris Saint-Germain in the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season, however Lewandowski did not play in that match due to injury.
