Robert Lewandowski scored his first Champions League hat-trick for Barcelona as his new team began their European campaign with a 5-1 win over Viktoria Plze at Camp Nou on Wednesday. Frank Casey defeated Lewandowski in the 13th minute to beat Barcelona. He scored twice before half-time on either side of Jan Sikora’s goal, which temporarily restored Plzen’s hopes of getting something out of the game.
Lewandowski finished his 6th Heroes Association full go around mid-second half before Ferran Torres put the last clean on the scoreline with a volley. Lewandowski’s high pitch saw him break a bind with Karim Benzema to remain solitary as the third-most noteworthy scorer in Champions Association history with 89 objectives. He also became the first player in the history of the competition to score hat-tricks for three different clubs.
The Poland striker has scored eight goals in five appearances for Barcelona since arriving from Bayern Munich in the summer. This is how Robert the insatiable Barcelona coach Xavi Hernandez said. The way he trains, the way he helps the team, his humility, his work-rate. I cannot praise him enough as it is not just about his hat-trick, the way he acts, how he knows how to dominate the pace of the game. added.
Several summer signings of Barcelona were revealed in the first half. After another fresh debut Casey got his most memorable Bosses Association objective to begin the scoring with a short proximity header, Jules Condé headed a corner on his way. Lewandowski’s first goal was scored by Bunch in the 34th minute. Sergi Roberto Lewandowski stabilized himself on the edge of the box after a run from the center and stepped into the corner of the net with trademark pinpoint accuracy.
His job became easy in the third minute of stoppage time of the first half. Ousmane Dembele worked to win the ball back into the right wing before supplying a superb cross that trapped Plzen’s goalkeeper and with Lewandowski a simple halted header at the back post.
Plzen gave the hosts some terrorizing in the initial round, before the scoreline got some distance from them. The Czech heroes were granted a punishment in the 24th moment when VAR hailed that Jon Mosquera’s elbow hit Barcelona protector Andreas Christensen in the face before the Plzen forward was gotten down front of objective.
Please accomplished his objective in the 44th moment when Sikora started to lead the pack from a Vaclav Jemelka cross, however Lewandowski before long ensured it was excessively short. Lewandowski reestablished Barca’s two-objective lead not long before the stretch with one more impeccably set exertion from fresh in the 67th moment.
The man who set up that effort, Torres scored a goal of his own with an unstoppable volley off Dembele’s chipped ball on the defence. He defended well, he positioned us but Dembele was brilliant and Lewandowski made the difference. We were a better team and I am happy with the players as well as the starters. Everyone was really up for it.
Barcelona will be in action in the Champions League next Tuesday when they visit Lewandowski’s former club Bayern Munich next Tuesday. Plzen will face Inter Milan, the last team of Group C, on the same day.
