Bayern Munich earned another three points in their 2021/22 UEFA Champions League group stage campaign. A convincing 5-0 victory over Dynamo Kyiv sees Die Roten remain at the top of the table after two matchdays. Their large margin of victory saw multiple players involved in the scoring as four different players found the back of the net. Here are the top three performers from Bayern’s win.

Leroy Sane

The winger produced one of his best performances of the season. Sane recorded a goal and an assist to help the lead the way to victory. In addition to his goal and assist, he registered two key passes, completed 93% of his passing attempts, and completed seven successful dribbles. He nearly scored himself in the first half but his shot hit the post and stayed out.

Sane’s overall form has been on the rise lately as he has now registered three goals and four assists in his last five appearances for Bayern. The Germany international leads the club in total assists in all competitions with seven. With plenty of matches remaining this season, he only needs six more assists to better his assist total from last season’s campaign. He is certainly having the best run of form for Bayern since joining the club.

Robert Lewandowski

For the second consecutive Champions League match, Lewandowksi recorded a two-goal performance. He dispatched a first-half penalty kick and then produced a calm and cool finish 15 minutes later for his second goal. In addition to his two goals, Lewandowski contributed three key passes and five total shots.

The reliable striker now sits second in this season’s Champions League top scorer rankings. Only Ajax’s Sebastien Haller has scored more goals as he has registered five goals in two appearances. Lewandowski just needs two more goals in the Champions League this season to better his five-goal total from last season.

Thomas Muller

Although his 50th career Champions League goal did not come against Dynamo Kyiv, it was still a fantastic performance from Muller. The Bayern veteran recorded two assists in the victory. Additionally, he led the way with five key passes which was the highest number of key passes recorded by any player on the pitch on Wednesday night.

Muller now has three goals and four assists in his last six appearances. Much like Lewandowski and Sane, he is showing terrific form at the moment and has continued to be consistently involved in producing and scoring goals. With this current run of form, the 50th Champions League goal for Muller should be right around the corner with four more group stage fixtures remaining.
