Robert Lewandowski is one of the main favorites to win the Golden Ball in 2021, alongside Leo Messi from Paris Saint-Germain. The captain of the Polish national team has already confirmed his presence at the gala at the Theater du Chatelet in Paris, which will take place on November 29. Lewandowski was also nominated for the FIFA The Best award, which he managed to win last year.
Robert Lewandowski could break a personal record in the Champions League. Then it will be chasing Cristiano Ronaldo
Robert Lewandowski is the leader in the classification of the Champions League scorers after four rounds played. The Bayern Munich forward has already scored eight goals and is one goal ahead of Sebastian Haller, who plays for Ajax Amsterdam. Currently, Lewandowski can boast a series with at least one goal in eight games in a row – a double and a goal in both games against RB Salzburg, respectively, after a goal in both games against Lazio, a double against Barcelona, a double against Dynamo Kiev, a goal against Benfica Lisbon and a hat-trick in the rematch.
If Robert Lewandowski defeats the Dynamo Kyiv goalkeeper at least once, he will equal the personal record set in 2020. Ruud van Nistelrooy has a similar streak, with Cristiano Ronaldo still holding the Champions League record, scoring at least one goal in 11 consecutive Real Madrid games in 2017-2018. Lewandowski may already become an independent record holder if he scores at least one goal in the last two matches of the group stage and in both matches of the 1/8 finals of the Champions League.
Bayern Munich’s meeting with Dynamo Kiev will be held on Tuesday, November 23 at 18:45. The match on Polish television will be available on Polsat Sport Premium 1. Live coverage on Sport.pl and in the Sport.pl LIVE mobile application.
