Robert Lewandowski can look back on an eventful year packed with records. The FC Bayern number nine has scored a whopping 69 goals in all competitions, including some real screamers - one in particular. Fans of the German record champions voted Lewy's opening goal in the Champions League match away to Dynamo Kyiv as their November Goal of the Month, by an overwhelming majority.

Lewy's wonder goal opens the door to group win

Lewandowski laid the foundation for victory in Kyiv with his outstanding opening goal.

In heavy snowfall in Ukraine, Lewandowski didn't have long to think when the ball came his way in the 14th minute. Standing with his back to goal, the Poland international took a rebound at the penalty spot with a bicycle kick and blasted the ball into the net for 1-0. The goal was as beautiful as it was important, as it proved the foundation for a hard-earned 2-1 win in Kyiv, which confirmed Bayern as group winners early.

Sané and Gnabry on the podium

A phenomenal 75.5 percent of the votes cast went to the striking star, who was followed by Leroy Sané (11.5%) - who claimed the award in October with a wonderful free kick against Benfica - for his match-winning strike in the 1-0 victory against Arminia Bielefeld. Third in the November ranking was Serge Gnabry, who received 11% for his backheel goal in the 5-2 win at home to Benfica.
