Kimmich sets new record in 50th Champions League match as Bayern Munich thrash Lazio

Robert Lewandowski, Joshua Kimmich, Bayern Munich 2020-21

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

Joaquin Correa pulled a goal back for the home side two minutes later.

It is the 38thtime Kimmichhas 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.

Bayern return to Bundesligaaction on Saturday when face Koln at home and then host rivals Borussia Dortmund a week later. The second leg against Lazio will be played on March 17.
