Considering Robert Lewandowski’s form when he plays in London, he might want to consider a move to the Premier League next summer.
The Polish striker, who scored for Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final defeat last season at Wembley, fired home the winner at the Emirates Stadium with eight minutes remaining to defeat Arsenal, 2-1. Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored the German side’s first in the 16th minute before Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud equalized off a mistake in front of goal in the 41st minute.
Lewandowski however arrived at the back post on a cross from winger Kevin Grosskreutz in the 82nd minute and smashed home to bring the three points back to Dortmund and put the top of Group F into a three-way tie, as Arsenal, Napoli, and BVB all have six points from three games.
Though Lionel Messi scored for the first time since late September after missing the last three weeks due to injury, Barcelona wasn’t able to find their second wind as they were held to a 1-1 draw at the San Siro against AC Milan. Robinho looked solid early and scored inside ten minutes for the hosts but the real story was the play of Kaka, who looked at times like the world beater he once was in Italy.
Chelsea forward Fernando Torres scored in the 5th minute and Jose Mourinho’s side didn’t look back as they added two more goals in the second half for good measure to take down FC Schalke on the road. Chelsea have now scored 14 goals in their last four games.
Here’s a full rundown of Tuesday’s results:
FC Schalke 0-3 Chelsea
Steaua Bucharest 1-1 FC Basel
Marseille 1-2 Napoli
Arsenal 1-2 Borussia Dortmund
Austria Wien 0-3 Atletico Madrid
Porto 0-1 Zenit St. Petersburg
AC Milan 1-1 Barcelona
Celtic 2-1 Ajax
