Robert Lewandowski scores the first hat-trick in Champions League history as Bayern Munich defeats RB Salzburg 7-1 (agg 8-2).

Bayern Munich defeated RB Salzburg 7-1, with Robert Lewandowski scoring the quickest hat-trick in Champions League history.

With a triple shot inside the first 23 minutes, the Poland star hit the 40-goal milestone for the sixth consecutive season.

Any hopes of a competitive match were swiftly dashed as Nicolas Capaldo squandered an early chance for Salzburg, and Bayern turned up the heat.

After turning excellently on Coman’s ball to slot home a 12th-minute penalty, Lewandowski was hauled down by Maximilian Wober.
Wober felled Lewandowski just inside the area for Bayern’s second goal, and the forward’s second spot-kick reached the same corner of the net.

The third goal came almost instantaneously, as advancing Salzburg goalkeeper Philipp Kohn booted the ball against Lewandowski, which rebounded into a post before being tapped in by the striker.

Mohamed Camara was robbed by Coman in order to set up his business. After 31 minutes, Serge Gnabry blasted a shot under the body of Kohn.

After Salzburg youngster Maurits Kjaergaard scored a fantastic left-footed consolation goal nine minutes after the restart, Thomas Muller slammed home the fifth goal.

But Muller scored his 52nd Champions League goal and Leroy Sane completed the carnage five minutes from time to give Bayern the victory.
