Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski revelled in scoring his 200th competitive goal for the Bundesliga champions.
Lewandowski celebrated a milestone as Bayern opened their Champions League campaign with a 3-0 victory over Red Star Belgrade in Munich on Wednesday.
The 31-year-old striker, who moved onto 199 competitive goals for Bayern in their draw at Bundesliga rivals RB Leipzig last week, poked home the team’s second goal with 10 minutes remaining against Red Star.
“We always had the game under control and played well, we upped the pace and created a lot of chances,” Lewandowski said as he reflected on the Group B clash.
“But we didn’t score enough goals. We always tried to get forward. Sometimes we might have made wrong decisions, but these are little things. In the end it was only three goals, but it could have been five or six.
“You need games like today to help with a good analysis, to see what you can do better. After the second goal, it got easier. I’m glad I scored again.”

Lewandowski – the highest-scoring foreigner for Bayern – is fourth on the club’s all-time list, behind Rainer Ohlhauser (215), Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (218) and Gerd Muller (564).
The Poland international has flourished since arriving from Borussia Dortmund in 2014, winning five successive Bundesliga titles.
Lewandowski – who has also won two DFB-Pokal trophies and three DFL-Supercups – has topped the Bundesliga scoring charts for the past two seasons and four of the past six.
