Dynamo Kyiv 1-2 Bayern Munich: Robert Lewandowski & Kingsley Coman score

Robert Lewandowski of Bayern Munich scores against Dynamo Kyiv in the Champions League
Robert Lewandowski has scored 14 goals in his last nine Champions League games

Robert Lewandowski scored for the ninth successive Champions League game as Bayern Munich maintained their 100% record in Group E against Dynamo Kyiv.

The Poland striker gave Bayern - eight points clear of Barcelona in the group - the lead with an overhead kick.

Kingsley Coman, who scored the winner in the 2020 final against Paris St-Germain, slotted home the second.

Denys Harmash scored Kyiv's first goal of this year's tournament but they were unable to find an equaliser.

Bayern were without Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry, Jamal Musiala, Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting and Michael Cuisance after the five players were in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19.

German newspaper Bild has reportedexternal-link that those players will not be paid during their quarantine period.

The 2020 winners started slowly but Lewandowski's instinctive finish changed the mood and was a moment of brilliance typical of the striker.

A cross from the right popped up off a defender's leg and the airborne striker volleyed home with his left foot.

The goal meant the 33-year-old became the first player to score in nine successive Champions League games twice, having also done it in August 2020. Ruud van Nistelrooy and Cristiano Ronaldo have both achieved the feat once.

Kyiv, who were unable to progress after picking up just one point in their first four games, hit the post at 1-0 when a Leon Goretzka back-pass was missed by Manuel Neuer as he attempted to clear.

France winger Coman made it 2-0 just before half-time when he latched on to a Corentin Tolisso pass on the right wing and slotted into the top corner.

Kyiv were excellent after the break, forcing Neuer into an early save, before substitute Harmash finished off a clever move to reduce the deficit.

They pushed for an equaliser, with captain Serhiy Sydorchuk seeing an effort from just outside the area saved and Viktor Tsyhankov grazing the outside of the post with a left-footed effort from distance.
