MUNICH: Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski scored a hattrick, set up another goal and missed a penalty on his 100th Champions League appearance as they crushed Benfica 5-2 on Tuesday to cruise into the knockout stage with two Group E matches to spare.

The 2020 world player of the year headed home his first goal in the 26th minute and chipped in another just past the hour after also setting up Serge Gnabry for a sensational backheel flick in the 32nd.

He did miss a penalty in first half stoppage time but sealed his treble in the 85th minute.
