Robert Lewandowski almost single-handedly dismantled Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League on Tuesday night to set a new record
Bayern Munich clinched a 6-0 triumph in Belgrade to maintain a 100% record in Europe’s top-tier competition this term, with the Polish striker continuing to make history.
The 31-year-old bagged four goals in 14 minutes and 31 seconds, which is the fastest Champions League quadruple ever, with each of those goals coming in the second half.
Also, Lewandowski emerged as only the second player after Lionel Messi to score four goals in two Champions League matches.

With four goals scored last night, the former Borussia Dortmund talisman also became the Bavarians’ best-ever goal scorer in the most prestigious club competition in Europe with 46 goals.
Lewandowski also leads the Champions League goalscoring chart, having bagged ten goals this term already – three more than RB Salzburg’s Erik Braut Haaland.
His haul at the Stadion Rajko Mitic took his tally for this club season to 27 goals, making him by far the most prolific goal scorer in Europe’s top-five leagues.
