Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski continued his remarkable scoring run with a hat-trick in a 5-0 thrashing of Dinamo Zagreb last night to snap the Croats' 45-game unbeaten run and take control of their Group F.

In an explosive first half in which Bayern were 4-0 up inside half an hour, Lewandowski, who has notched a staggering 10 goals in their last three matches, including five in a record nine-minute spell against VfL Wolfsburg last week, netted twice in seven minutes after Brazilian Diego Costa had put Bayern ahead.

Mario Goetze added his second of the campaign before Poland captain Lewandowski chipped keeper Eduardo in the 55th minute for his third goal.

Two late goals in two minutes from Sergi Roberto and Luis Suarez gave Barcelona a remarkabl e 2-1 home win over Bayer Leverkusen in Group E.

Trailing with 10 minutes to go, Sergi poked in a rebound from close range, and moments later Suarez swept the ball home from just inside the area.
