Lewandowski makes European history

UEFA Champions League

Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski has crowned a remarkable 2019/20 campaign by winning the UEFA Champions League, and in doing so, wrote his name into European football's history books.

Bayern completed a famous treble on Sunday when they defeated Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain in an enthralling Champions League final in Lisbon, with former PSG starlet Kingsley Coman scoring the only goal of the night for the Bundesliga giants.

The historic result saw Hansi Flick's German outfit lift their sixth European title overall, which joins the league and German Cup titles the club had already added to their trophy cabinet earlier in the year.

While Lewandowski wasn't able to add his name to the scoresheet on the night, winning the UCL crowned a remarkable campaign for the 32-year old, which saw him score 55 goals across all competitions, at least 16 goals more than any other player across Europe.

His haul, which is the most prolific of his career to date, included 34 goals in the Bundesliga, 15 in the Champions League and six in the German Cup, all of which were competition highs for the 2019/20 season.

Having won the Golden Boot awards across all three tournaments, the Poland international has become the first-ever player win a continental treble while also being the top scorer in each competition in a single campaign, according to the Bundesliga's Alex Chaffer.

Lewandowski's form has seen him emerge as arguably Europe's foremost player, although there will be no recognition for him on the grandest stage this season after the 2020 Ballon d'Or ceremony was cancelled as a result of the fallout from the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
