Lewandowski joins Ronaldo and Messi on elite list

Lewandowski joins Ronaldo and Messi on elite list despite Bayern's UCL exit

April 12, 2022 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Bayern Munich striker found himself among an illustrious company although his goal against Villarreal proved inadequate.

Robert Lewandowski has joined Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi as the only three players to score 30 or more Champions League knockout goals in history. The 33-year-old striker scored Bayern Munich's only goal of the night as they agonizingly crashed out of the European competition after a 2-1 aggregate defeat to Villarreal on Tuesday night.

Unai Emery led Villarreal to a 1-0 first-leg victory in Spain, but Bayern appeared to be in command once Lewandowski found the back of the net in the second half at the Allianz Arena. The player, who had been quiet all night, sprang into life inside the 52nd minute and beat the opposition's goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli with a shot from close range. The Polish attacker's strike took his tally in the competition this season to 13 in 10 appearances.

In the end, the goal did not prove adequate as Samuel Chukwueze's will score a late equalizer to hand Villarreal a 2-1 aggregate win at Allianz Arena. The later, who will be featuring in their second-ever Champions League semi-final game in their history, will take on the winner of the game between Liverpool and Benfica.

For Lewandowski, the goal took his tally in the Champions League at home this season to nine. All in all, the former Borussia Dortmund superstar has scored 86 career goals in the competition after 106 appearances.
