Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland have garnered all the attention this month, but Robert Lewandowski continues to perform at an absolutely elite level. He scored his 72nd Champions League goal on Tuesday night, meaning he overtook Real Madrid legend Raul in the Champions League all-time goalscoring table, according to a report by Diario AS.
Bayern Munich won 4-1 away at Lazio, with Lewandowski opening the scoring in the ninth minute before his teammates crammed to go 4-0, with Lazio scoring a consolation goal. The Pole has now scored 55 goals for Bayern in Europe’s premier competition, on top of his 17 goals for Borussia Dortmund. His first goal in the competition dates back less than ten years, against Olympiacos.
He is, however, still far behind the usual pair. Cristiano Ronaldo leads the way with 134 goals, while Lionel Messi is behind him with 119. After Lewandowski comes Raul, with 71, while Karim Benzema is behind him with 69. Ruud van Nistelrooy, Thierry Henry, Alfredo di Stefano, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Andriy Shevchenko closes the top ten.
