Kirmich , Musiala set Champions League record

Jamal Musiala

 

Bayern duo of Joshua Kimmich and Jamal Musiala did not only savour victory in the Uefa champions League on Tuesday but also set individual records in the bargain.

Kimmich has set Champions League record for most wins in his first 50 games in the competition as Bayern Munich beat Lazio on Tuesday.

The Bundesliga giants secured a 4-1 away win in the first leg of their last-16 tie, with Robert Lewandowski, Jamal Musiala, Leroy Sane and a Francesco Acerbi’s own goal giving them an insurmountable lead with just 47 minutes played.

It is the 38th time Kimmich has been on the winning side in the Champions League, more than any other player in their first 50 games.

Kimmich has scored 10 goals in the European competition and has suffered just five defeats.

Kimmich’s Champions League career began during his first year with the club when he came off the bench to play the final 15 minutes in a 3-0 win at Olympiacos in September 2015.

He quickly blossomed into a first-team regular for the Bavarian side and helped them to the semi-finals on two occasions before eventually winning the competition last season.

The Germany international remains a crucial figure for Hansi Flick’s side, but injury has limited him to just 25 appearances in all competitions this season.

Kimmich was not the only Bayern player to set new records in Tuesday’s comfortable win, as 17-year-old Jamal Musiala became the youngest Englishman to score in the Champions League and the youngest to find the net for a German club.
