UEFA Champions League

7 Players That Have Scored Four Goals in One Champions League Match

Only Lionel Messi and Robert Lewandowski have scored four or more goals in a match more than once among the fifteen players who have done so. Messi (against Bayer Leverkusen on March 8, 2012) and Luiz Adriano (against BATE Borisov on October 21, 2014) have scored five goals in a single match. There are thirteen other players who have scored four goals in a game but kets forcus on top 7

1. Robert Lewandowski | Bayern Munich 6-0 Red Star

Lewandowski became the second player in Champions League history to score four or more goals in two different games.

2. Barcelona vs. Arsenal and Bayer Leverkusen (2009/10 & 2011/12) Lionel Messi

Messi is one of just two players in Champions League history to score five goals in a single game, which he did against Bayer Leverkusen in a mesmerizing 7-1 victory in 2012.

3. Anderlecht vs. Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Paris Saint-Germain) - 2013/14.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored a number of goals in the UEFA Champions League over his career, including a quartet against Anderlecht in the 2013-14 season.

4. Bayern Munich 7-0 Basel, 13 March 2012 Mario Gomez

Gomez scored four goals as Bayern destroyed their Swiss opponents to go to the last eight after trailing by a lone goal in the first leg. Bayern's season came to a close with a heartbreaking loss to Chelsea in the Champions League final.

5. Serge Gnabry - (2019-20) Tottenham vs Bayern

When Tottenham Hotspur's Son Heung-min scored the game's first goal, it gave little indication of what was to come. For the visitors, Joshua Kimmich responded quickly, and Robert Lewandowski scored just before halftime to give Bayern a 2-1 advantage, before the Serge Gnabry display in the second half. Bayern had a three-goal lead thanks to the German winger's two goals. Tottenham's modest hopes of a comeback were dashed when Gnabry scored twice more in the final seven minutes, putting an end to any thoughts of a comeback. As Bayern handed Tottenham their worst-ever home defeat, he tucked home either side of a Lewandowski goal. Gnabry scored the Champions League's 15th four-goal hat-trick in the process. The German winger became the 93rd different player to score a hat-trick in the Champions League, and the fourth from Germany (after Bernd Hobsch, Uwe Rösler, Mario Gómez, and Mesut zil).

6. Olivier Giroud - (2019/2020) Chelsea vs Sevilla

Chelsea thrashed Sevilla 4-0 to secure top spot in Group E, with Olivier Giroud becoming the oldest player to score a Champions League hat-trick. For much of the season, Giroud has been a late replacement for summer signings Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham, but he began for Chelsea in Spain on Wednesday night last season as Frank Lampard made nine changes. The 34-year-stunning old's performance more than justified his selection, as he became only the second Chelsea player to score four goals in a European encounter. Giroud opened the scoring with a left-footed strike from inside the area after only eight minutes, before doubling Chelsea's lead shortly after halftime with a clever chip with his right foot. With a fantastic header from N'Golo Kante's cross on 74 minutes, Giroud scored a 'perfect hat-trick,' before adding a fourth late from the penalty spot. Giroud became the oldest player to score a hat-trick in Champions League history, and the oldest player to do it in the European Cup since Ferenc Puskas of Real Madrid in 1965.

7. Cristiano Ronaldo (2015-16) Real Madrid vs Malmo

Cristiano Ronaldo put the Danish visitors Malmo to the sword after Karim Benzema's quickfire double had given Real Madrid a two-goal buffer inside 24 minutes. To finish the game as a contest, the Portuguese scored four goals in a devastating 19-minute span either side of halftime. It was the competition's 100th hat-trick, and the sixth by a Real Madrid player (Raul Gonzalez-1, Cristiano Ronaldo-1, Karim Benzema-1, Cristiano Ronaldo-4). Ronaldo's four goals were his first in the Champions League.
