UEFA Champions League

The Only Player Who Holds The Record For Most Consecutive Matches Won In The Champions League

Robert Lewandowski holds the record for most consecutive matches won by a player in the Champions League, with 22 straight victories whilst with Bayern Munich. The run began on 18 September 2019 with a 3–0 success against Red Star Belgrade in his first group stage match of the 2019–20 season, after losing 3–1 against Liverpool in the previous season's round of 16.

The streak continued as Lewandowski started in all of Bayern's other four group victories (he did not play in their win against Tottenham Hotspur) and all five knockout phase wins, as they defeated Paris Saint-Germain 1–0 in the final.

In the following season, Lewandowski started in a further four victories for Bayern in the group stage (he did not play against Atlético Madrid or Lokomotiv Moscow) and reached a sixteenth win after appearing in a 2–1 second leg success against Lazio in the round of 16.

Because of injury, he did not play against Paris Saint-Germain in either leg of the quarter-finals. In the following season, Lewandowski started in a further six victories for Bayern in the group stage. Lewandowski's streak ended on 16 February 2022, following a 1–1 draw against Red Bull Salzburg in the first leg of the round of 16.

Recognised for his positioning, technique and finishing, Lewandowski is regarded as one of the best strikers in the world, as well as one of the most successful players in Bundesliga and Bayern Munich history. He has scored over 500 senior career goals for club and country.

Lewandowski is widely regarded as one of the best strikers in the world, and is considered by many to be one of the greatest centre-forwards of all time. An accurate and efficient finisher with his head and both feet, Lewandowski is a prolific goalscorer, which has led him to be dubbed Lewangoalski.
