Bayern Munich won the game against Dinamo Kiev with five goals difference. Robert Lewandowski stole the show again. He was the best even after the game against Barca.
Two goals against Barca
Lewandowski had scored twice in Barcelona to help the German champions to a 3-0 victory on Matchday 1 of the group stage, and it wasn’t long before the reigning world player of the year was threatening again. The Pole had a powerful header well tipped over the bar by Kyiv goalkeeper Georgiy Bushchan, and from the corner that followed Bayern were awarded a penalty. After the ball had struck the elbow of visiting captain Serhiy Sydorchuk, Lewandowski calmly sent Buschan the wrong way from the spot. Right-back Niklas Süle then shot wide from just outside the area as Kyiv showed good organisation until Lewandowski got his second. The European Golden Shoe winner had all the time in the world to pick his spot after being found in space by a Thomas Müller through-ball. Leroy Sane then smacked a shot off the base of the post before a rapid break from Kyiv ended with Manuel Neuer brilliantly flicking out a hand to push Carlos De Pena’s cushioned effort over the top.
Second half was better for the team
Kyiv made two changes at the break in a bid to turn the game around, but instead Leon Goretzka, Joshua Kimmich, Lewandowski and Sane all had chances to add to the home side’s lead. Serge Gnabry then smashed home Bayern’s third after being released by Sane, and the latter player scored another when his cross from the left – or was it a shot? – caught out the keeper. Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting came off the bench to round off another impressive win for the home side with a fine downward header from a Benjamin Pavard cross as Bayern cemented their position atop Group E.
