UCL Goal Scorers: What Lewandowski Said Even As Current Top

Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski is currently the top scorer in the UEFA Champions League, after Wednesday’s match day 4.

Lewandowski who scored a hat-trick in Bayern Munich’s 5-2 win over Benfica on Tuesday, now has scored eight goals in total.

Behind the Polish international is Ajax’s Sebastien Haller, who has seven goals.

Lewandowski is in line to beat a record set by last season’s top scorer, Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland, who had 10.

Only Messi and Ronaldo have more hat-tricks than Lewandowski as well, with the two having eight each compared to Lewandowski’s four. Speaking to reporters the current top goal scorer said,

“I never thought that we could play so many matches with so many goals and assists,” Lewandowski admitted said after the match. “During the first 20 minutes, I hardly had the ball. In the second half, it is not that easy for an attacker to remain patient. After the first goal, it’s always a little easier.”

Praising the top scorer, Bayern boss Julian Nagelsmann added that Lewandowski should not be reduced to his goals scored on Wednesday alone but  that he praise for strength of character shown. Speaking the Bayern boss said,

“He should not be reduced to only his goals tonight, but of course he has shown his strength of character and he is always looking to score.

“He is and will remain for a long time to come the best striker in the world.”
