Robert Lewandowski has made Champions League history after stretching his winning run Bayern Munich in European competition to 18 games.

The prolific Polish striker was among the goals once more on Wednesday as he helped to secure a crushing 5-0 convert Dynamo Kyiv.

He bagged a brace, taking him to 11 efforts for the season across all competitions, and also landed himself another entry within the record books.

What record did Lewandowski break?

The 33-year-old frontman has grown familiar with breaking records down the years, with few ready to match his stunning strike rate.

He has been a talismanic figure for Bayern for quite seven years and has helped the Bundesliga giants to an enviable collection of major honours.

Continental glory was savoured back in 2019-20, and you've got to show the clock back even further to seek out the last time Lewandowski was last on a losing side within the Champions League.

Having helped down Dynamo, the Poland international has now earned 18 successive wins - a run no other player can match.

The last time Lewandowski lost

The Bayern superstar has faced a number of the most important sides in world football during his winning sequence, including Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.

None are ready to get the higher of him, with PSG sending a Lewandowski-less Bayern packing at the quarter-final stage last season as he omitted with a knee injury.

The last team to beat the Munich heavyweights when Lewandowski was leading the road were Liverpool back in March 2019.

Across the 18 games during which he has managed to avoid defeat, Lewandowski has plundered 24 goals and provided five assists.
