The Polish star continues to shine and last night helped his team to victory with three goals.
coach Julian Nagelsmann praised the performance of Robert Lewandowski and his hat-trick in last night's match against Benfica.
Lewandowski finished his 100th Champions League game last night with a hat-trick against Benfica in a 5-2 victory to secure his side's promotion to the next round. The Ballon d'Or contender is the sixth player after Thierry Henry, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Cristiano Ronaldo, Andrea Pirlo and Tony Kroos to score in his 100th Champions League game and is now being praised by Nagelsmann.
"Ninety-eight times involved, 81 goals in 100 Champions League games. Something new?
"Today most of the people talk about his three goals. Or many people write about his three goals. But you have to see his joy to play in the last 30 minutes. He played every offensive position, wanted to have every ball. He started good attacks."
Asked about comparing Lewa with Ronaldo and Messi, the German coach said:
"I think it's very difficult to compare because they are different types of players. I don't know the character of the other two, I also only know them out of the TV, as do you, I guess. I think all three were very impressive players in the last years.
"[Lewandowski] I also know as a person. He is a very nice guy which whom it's very nice to work with. I heard that also about the other two guys when I talked about them with their former coaches. I believe that Lewy can achieve a lot, also at a high age, because of his physique and his lifestyle and the way he lives as a footballer.
"He will continue to be the best forward in the world because he does everything to keep it that way."
