Robert Lewandowski has been in fine form for Bayern Munich and had a hat-trick as Bayern beat Dinamo Zagreb 5-0 Tuesday in the Champions League.
Lewandowski recently had the game off his career when he came on at halftime against Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga and ended up scoring five goals in the span of nine minutes.
He had to settle with a hat-trick against Dinamo Zagreb on Tuesday in Bayern’s 5-0 win. Bayern tops Group F on six points, and next up in the Champions League is a double meeting with Arsenal. The Gunners have lost the two first games, and Bayern will surely look to pile on the misery.
Douglas Costa gave Bayern the lead in the 13th minute. Lewandowski scored his first goal of the night in the 21st minute to make it 2-0. Mario Gotze then made it 3-0 for minutes later before Lewandowski got his second in the 28th minute. He then completed the hat-trick in the 55th minute.
Manager Pep Guardiola was pleased with the win and the way his side played.
“Congratulations to my team,” Guardiola told fcbayern.de. “It was a good performance. We stopped almost all their counter-attacks and we controlled the game well. Six points means we’re heading in the right direction and my players are on good form. Tomorrow we’re off to the Oktoberfest. After that we have time to think about Dortmund.”
Dinamo coach Zoran Mamic was humble in defeat, praising Bayern for their performance.
“Bayern showed just how strong they are,” Mamic said. “They were superior in every respect and punished us brutally for our errors. The difference in quality between us and FC Bayern is enormous.”
