It was the 14th minute of the game on the clock, and Robert Lewandowski was lining up in Dynamo’s penalty area for a wonderful flip. The Polish sniper hit perfectly, and the goalkeeper of the Kiev team had no chance. Tomasz Kędzior’s defender in the Ukrainian team could only admire the extraordinary skills of “Lewy”.
It was the ninth goal for the Pole in the current season of the Champions League. What’s more, Lewandowski has already scored 64 goals throughout 2021 and is by far the most effective sniper in the world. Kylian Mbappe, second in this classification, scored 20 goals less than the Pole this year.
Winter scenery in Kiev. The genius of Thomas Mueller and the arbitrator’s controversial decision
At the Olympic Stadium in Kiev, we had a real winter scenery, which Polish fans associate more with jumping competitions than football matches of the Champions League. The players of both teams were freezing and sliding on the pitch, and the duels between Lewandowski and Kędziora were often won by the one who better … kept on his feet.
Snow did not help Manuel Neur, who shortly after the beautiful goal of “Lewy” tried to kick the ball out of his own penalty area, but did not manage to hit it. The football passed the German goalkeeper and stopped at the goal post of Bayern. To say it looked bizarre is like saying nothing.
Later in the first half the game was really even, but just before the break, Thomas Mueller showed his football genius. The German midfielder beautifully let the ball fly towards Kingsley Coman, who ended Bayern’s action with a great shot against the crossbar.
Moments later, one of Dynamo’s attackers ran into Bayern’s penalty area and was stopped by Lukas Hernandez. The footballers from Kiev probably rightly demanded a penalty kick, but even after the analysis of the VAR, the referee remained adamant to their demands.
After scoring his wonderful goal, Robert Lewandowski was invisible in the first half.
Amazing statistics of “Lewy” and Bayern
Our sniper has had a difficult week. The captain of the Polish national team found himself in the fire of criticism after he resigned from playing in the el. World Cup with Hungary at the National Stadium. “Lewy” did not collect positive opinions from the German media after Friday’s defeat of Bayern in the Bundesliga match with Augsburg (1: 2).
It does not change the fact that in the Champions League our sniper looks phenomenal this season. In the previous four matches LM “Lewy” scored as many as eight goals, which gave him a sensational average of two goals scored per one game played. The Pole scored four goals in two matches against Benfica Lisbon and two goals in matches against Dynamo Kiev and Barcelona.
The fantastic statistics of Lewandowski obviously come from the great form of Bayern in the Champions League. The Bavarians have won all the game so far, and before the match against Dynamo Kiev they could boast of an almost unbelievable balance of goals. Bayern scored 17 in four games and lost just two.
A desperate defense of Bayern. Beautiful Neuer parades
The second part of the meeting started with a brilliant show by Manuel Neuer. The Bayern goalkeeper stopped Mykola Szaparenka twice within a few seconds, proving that he is still one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
In the 70th minute of the game, however, Neuer was already helpless. Wiktor Cyhankow served Denys Harmasz with a great perpendicular pass, and he probably defeated the German goalkeeper. A moment later it should be 2: 2, but Neuer saved his team once again.
At times, Bayern defended themselves desperately, and the guests from Kiev had some great chances to score an equalizing goal. Well, you can even risk the claim that Dynamo simply deserved this draw.
But Bayern is not in the habit of losing points in the Champions League. Nagelsmann’s players finally triumphed 2: 1 and after five matches of the Champions League group stage they have a complete set of victories. The Bavarians are sure to take first place in Group E, in which Barcelona and Benfica Lisbon also compete.
