MUNICH, Germany: Incumbent Bayern Munich booked tickets to the last 16 of the Champions League when Robert Lewandowski scored his 71st goal of the tournament after a 3-1 home win over Salzburg.

Only Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored 131 times and Lionel Messi with 118 goals, scored more goals than the Polish star.

Bayern doubled their advantage after the break through a Kingsley Coman attempt that hit Salzburg defender Maximilian Woeber.

Leroy Sane scored his third goal after Bayern played 10 men when midfielder Marc Roca was sent off on his debut in the Champions League.

Salzburg came close with a goal from striker Mergim Berisha in the 73rd minute.
