2021/2022 UEFA Champions League Top Scorers After Match Day Five

After match day five of UEFA champions league group stages, Sebastien Haller has caught up with Robert Lewandowski on nine goals at the top of the 2021/2022 uefa champions league scoring charts after making history on match day five.

The Ajax forward came on as a substitute when his team were trailing Besiktas 1-0 at half-time in istanbul and promptly struck twice to seal a 2-1 win.

In doing so, he became the first player in the champions league history to register nine times in his first five outings having previously become the first player to score four times on his champions league debut.

Haller's latest scoring feat came a day after Lewandowski lifted his own tally for the campaign to nine goals when he hit the opener in Bayern's 2-1 victory at Dynamo Kiev.

The Poland captain thus became the only player to have struck in nine consecutive champions league games on two occasions.

Next on the list is RB Leipzig's Christopher Nkunku with seven goals, Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Manchester United's Cristiano Ronaldo are tucked in behind Nkunku on six apiece.
