As the first team since the introduction of this game mode in 2003/04, FC Bayern won the first eight games of a Champions League season. The 31 goals after eight games are also a premier class record.
Lewandowski involved in all goals against Chelsea
After three goals in the first leg (one goal, two assists) Lewandowski was directly involved in all four goals in the second leg.
The low hopes of Frank Lampard’s Blues were already nipped in the bud in the Allianz Arena: Lewandowski scored with a penalty (10th) to give an early lead. Chelsea keeper Willy Caballero had previously brought down the Poles.
Ivan Perisic, who replaced the injured Kingsley Coman, extended the lead with a pass from Lewandowkski (24th). (The game for reading in TICKER)

After the alleged connection hit by the former Bayern flirt Callum Hudson-Odoi was withdrawn because of an offside position (28th), Tammy Abraham shortened for the guests before the break (44th). Manuel Neuer was unable to clear a Hudson-Odois flank sufficiently.
Joker Tolisso stands out – Boateng struck out
Just five minutes after being substituted on, Corentin Tolisso restored the old two-goal lead after preliminary work by Lewandowski (76th). The Bayern goalgetter scored his second goal of the evening shortly afterwards (84th). For Lewandowski it was hits 12 and 13 of the current Champions League season.
After a good hour, Jérôme Boateng had to be replaced. The central defender injured his left thigh during a rescue act without outside interference.
Already on Sunday, Munich will fly to Portugal in the Algarve to prepare intensively for the upcoming knockout games. The finals of the premier class will take place on August 23rd.
