Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry have matched Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale as the Bayern Munich duo now have their sights set on sealing a Champions League record.
Gnabry netted a first-half brace in Wednesday’s Champions League semi-final, giving Bayern a 2-0 half-time lead over Ligue 1 side Lyon in the one-legged clash.
The German winger fired home Bayern’s first goal just moments after seeing Lyon hit the post at the other end, giving the Bundesliga side a 1-0 advantage in the 18th minute.

Real Madrid took down Atletico Madrid in that season’s final, with Ronaldo scoring 17 goals throughout the competition and Bale chipping in a further six.
