UEFA Champions League

Lewandowski of Bayern Munich sets a new Champions League record for the longest winning run.

Robert Lewandowski has created Champions League history by extending his winning streak in European play to 18 games for Bayern Munich.

On Wednesday, the prolific Polish striker was among the goals once again, this time in a 5-0 thrashing of Dynamo Kyiv.

He scored a brace, bringing his season total to 11 goals across all competitions, and he added another entry to the record books.

What was the record that Lewandowski broke?

Over the years, the 33-year-old vocalist has been accustomed to breaking records, with few being able to equal his incredible strike rate.

For more than seven years, he has been a talismanic figure for Bayern, helping the Bundesliga giants achieve an amazing collection of major titles.

The last time Lewandowski was on a losing side in the Champions League was in 2019-20, and you have to go even further back to discover the last time he was on a losing side in the competition.

After assisting on Dynamo's defeat, the Poland international has now won 18 games in a row, a streak that no other player can match.

Robert Lewandowski is the first player in the history of the UEFA Champions League to win 18 consecutive games.

The last time Lewandowski was defeated was in 2011.

During his winning streak, the Bayern great has faced some of the best teams in the world, including Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, and Barcelona.

None have been able to beat him, with PSG sending a Lewandowski-less Bayern out in the quarter-finals last season after he was forced to withdraw due to a knee injury.

The last team to defeat the Munich giants with Lewandowski at the helm was Liverpool in March of this year.

Lewandowski has scored 24 goals and given five assists in the 18 games in which he has avoided defeat.
