Lewandowski puts Germans on brink of last 16. Robert Lewandowski was at his clinical best as Bayern Munich brushed aside AEK Athens at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern Munich are within touching distance of the Champions League knockout stages after a Robert Lewandowski double secured a routine 2-0 Group E win over AEK Athens on Wednesday.
Benficaâs draw with Ajax in the groupâs other game means that Niko Kovacâs side have opened up a two-point lead at the summit and know that a point against the Portuguese side in three weeksâ time will cement their place in the last 16.
Kovac has been under pressure this week after a disappointing 1-1 Bundesliga draw with Freiburg on Saturday, but he will be relieved that his side came through this clash unscathed.
They were far from their best against Marinos Ouzounidisâ side â who now have no chance of progressing â and were indebted to Lewandoswkiâs 31st-minute penalty and smart finish in the second half to claim all three points.
