‘I think we can do it’ – Lewandowski is aiming for UCL trophy with Bayern



Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has an eye on wining the Champions League trophy this season with the Bundesliga club.

Bayern have been unable to transfer their domestic dominance onto the top flight League in recent years, after they lifted the famous trophy just once in the past 18 years.

The German side last made final in 2013 and were knocked out by Liverpool in the last 16 last season, but Lewandowski believes the five-time European champions can go all the way in 2019-20.

“Of course it always takes some luck – it can decide a single game – but we have a great squad now.”

Bayern have been placed in a group with Olympiacos, Red Star Belgrade and last season’s finalists Tottenham.

And Lewandowski feels Bayern are in good shape after adding Ivan Perisic, Lucas Hernandez, Benjamin Pavard, Michael Cuisance, Jann-Fiete Arp and Philippe Coutinho to their squad since last season.
