The Polish striker scored his 15th Champions League goal of the season on Wednesday night. He can still dream of Cristiano Ronaldo’s record.

Lewandowski therefore scored his 15th goal of the season in C1. A fabulous total, since Lionel messi for example has never done so well. The Argentinian stopped at 14 in 2011-12.

He remains in 10 consecutive matches with at least one goal, he has scored in all his C1 matches during this campaign, and has scored 12 doubles, 1 treble and 1 quadruple this season with the Bayern. The bad news for the PSG ? In the four seasons where they have scored at least 14 goals, Messi and Ronaldo have won the Champions League each time …
