A Breakdown Of Robert Lewandowski's Champions League Goals

Email

Robert Lewandowski currently sits on 45 career Champions League goals, putting him 10th on the all-time list. The Polish striker reached 17 with previous club Borussia Dortmund, and has added a further 28 to that tally since being on the books at Bayern Munich.

Here we break down Lewandoski's UCL goals into various categories:

BY PITCH AREA

Penalty Area 35
6 Yard Box 8

METHOD OF GOALS

Right 28
Head 9
Left 8
