Double for Lewandowski
EINDHOVEN, Netherlands (AP):
Robert Lewandowski scored both his team's goals yesterday as Bayern Munich beat PSV Eindhoven 2-1 to secure a place in the knockout stage of the Champions League.
The final score was flattering for PSV as Poland striker Lewandowski could, with a bit more luck, have had five goals instead of his brace.
Lewandowski had already struck a post and the crossbar with headers before he stroked home a 34th-minute penalty to level the score and reward the visitors for their dominance.
The equaliser came 20 minutes after defender Santiago Arias rounded off a lightning counterattack to score his first Champions League goal and give PSV a shock lead.
But Lewandowski made sure of Bayern's victory with his fourth strike in as many Champions League matches this season when he turned in a cross by David Alaba in the 74th minute.
With Group D leaders Atletico Madrid beating Rostov 2-1, both Bayern and Atletico are now assured of progressing while PSV and Rostov will fight it out for third place.
