A Dynamo defender tries to clear but only results in chipping the ball upwards. Quick as lightning, Lewandowski made an overhead kick with his shoelaces off. His spectacular overhead kick passed Dynamo goalkeeper Heorhiy Bushchan.
And replays show Lewandowski’s laces were not even tied when he jumped, making his spectacular somersault even more special. That beautiful effort became Lewandowski’s 25th goal in just 19 games this season.
The spectacular goal became a plus point for Lewandowski to win the first Ballon d’Or trophy. The goal also warmed Bayern’s spirits in the icy snow as they dominated the first half – despite missing five players.

Julian Nagelsmann’s men looked like they were about to end the game before half-time thanks to Kingsley Coman’s effort in the 42nd minute. But Dynamo fought back in the second half as they went forward.
And the hosts were finally rewarded with a goal in the 70th minute through Denys Harmash. But Bayern, who lost 2-1 to Augsburg in the Bundesliga on Friday, struggled to hold on to an important win and maintain their 100 per cent group stage record.
