Robert Lewandowski scores stunning aerial kick with his untied shoe as Bayern Munich striker sets brilliant new Champions League record


Robert Lewandowski continues to break Champions League records, achieving his latest feat with a superb header in Bayern Munich’s 2-1 win over Dynamo Kiev.

The 2019/20 Champions League winner has been in unstoppable form in recent years, racking up goal after goal and trophy after trophy for Bayern Munich.

Lewandowski set an impressive record in an even more impressive way, and he even did it with his untied shoe!

But it was in Europe’s first club competition that Lewandowski really impressed, sending Borussia Dortmund back to the final in 2013, before claiming their first crown with Bayern in 2020.

Among an impressive list of records, the Polish captain has the most goals of any player after his first 100 games with 81, and he currently sits third behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in the all-time scorers chart.

Lewandowski now has another record to brag about, becoming the first player to score in nine consecutive Champions League games on two occasions.

And he did it in the most impressive way, taking a kick over it to put Bayern 1-0 against Kiev.

Looking for a first game in the snow-capped Ukraine, Kingsley Coman handed the ball over to right-back Benjamin Pavard for a long-distance speculative effort, which was unsurprisingly blocked.

What happened next was not to be expected, with Illya Zabarnyi releasing a loop in the area, and Lewandowski reacted in an instant to throw his boot over his head and guide the ball.

The goal was Lewandowski’s 82nd in 101 games, giving Bayern a 2-0 lead in the first half.

However, it was not all easy for Bayern, with the normally flawless Manuel Neuer conceding almost in the most embarrassing way.

Viktor Tsyhankov was played in the box and Bayern looked to be struggling, but a last minute interception from Leon Goretzka quelled the issue.

The ball then went to Neuer for a routine clearance, but Germany’s No.1 went all the way Paul Robinson as the ball bounced off his foot, but to his relief the ball struck the post.
