Robert Lewandowski has returned to haunt Real Madrid once again with a record-breaking effort for Bayern Munich in the Champions League.
The Poland international has caused problems to plenty of opponents down the years, but he has picked up a particular knack of netting against Madrid in Europe.
His run of six efforts against the Liga giants started during his time with Borussia Dortmund and has continued since moving to Bavaria.

Lewandowski’s most recent effort helped to offer Bayern a lifeline in their quarter-final clash with Madrid.
The German champions headed into the tie trailing 2-1 on aggregate, with Cristiano Ronaldo having netted two priceless away goals at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern have, however, offered the perfect response at Santiago Bernabeu, with an own goal from Sergio Ramos adding to Lewandowski's opener after Ronaldo had scored one again for the hosts.
With the tie now all square on aggregate another spot-kick would be gratefully received by Carlo Ancelotti's side, with Lewandowski boasting a perfect penalty record in Europe’s premier club competition.
