Robert Lewandowski beats Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi to amazing Champions League record with Barcelona hat-trick
ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI became the first player to score a Champions League hat-trick for three clubs as Barcelona thrashed Viktoria Plzen 5-1 in Group C.
Franck Kessie nodded his first Barca goal to get them off to a flyer.
Lewandowski then got off the mark for the night with 34 minutes on the clock.
He added a second in the dying seconds of the first half.
That was moments after Jan Sykora had pulled one back for Plzen.
But the onslaught continued following the break as Barcelona and Lewandowski added to their tallys.
The Pole took his Champions League tally to 89 on 67 minutes to claim the matchball.
This hat-trick now goes to his previous trebles for Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
And it continued to get even better for Barcelona as Ferran Torres completed the rout with a fifth.
Meanwhile, Bayern won 2-0 at Inter in the same group.
