It’s obviously too early to say something, but the Polish striker Robert Lewandowski is the name of this season of the UEFA Champions League so far. It’s always hard to go to the Eastern part of Europe to play in the UCL. Not this time at least. This Tuesday in Matchday 5 in the Group Stages of the European Competition, Bayern Munich traveled to Belgrade and counted on the Polish striker to lead the Bavarians to a 6-0 win over Red Star Belgrade, with four goals from him. Tolisso and Leon Goretzka completed the scoring.
It took the German side only 14 minutes to open the scoring in the Serbian capital. In Philippe Coutinho’s free-kick, Goretzka went up higher than the defenders to head home into the top corner and to start the Bavarian rout. 0-1 Bayern.
However, the five other goals were scored only in the second half. On 53 mins, the referee awarded Bayern Munich a pen, as Lewandowski stepped up to make it two for the Germans.
In the 60th minute, Coutinho started it all, as he got the ball, and crossed it to the box, as Tolisso flicked the ball to Lewandowski, who made it three.
Four mins later, the Polish striker went back to the nets, this time from a Benjamin Pavard’s cross, as the Polish anticipated the keeper and nodded home.
He completed his four-goal exhibition on 67, as he combined for a give-and-go with Ivan Perisic, got face-to-face against the keeper, and scored from close-range. 5-0 Bayern Munich in Belgrade.
There was still time for Corentin Tolisso to make his goal, on 90 mins, making the Bavarians thrive in Belgrade. 6-0 Bayern Munich.
