New club, same ol' Robert Lewandowski.

Barcelona's marquee summer signing made history Wednesday, becoming the first player to score a Champions League hat-trick for three different clubs when he notched a treble in his European debut with the Blaugrana.

Lewandowski's three goals powered Barca to a dominant 5-1 victory over Viktoria Plzen. His third tally at the Camp Nou showcased the precision that has made the 34-year-old one of the most prolific players in history.

Barca, who didn't get beyond the group stage in last season's Champions League, also got goals from Franck Kessie and Ferran Torres.

There are stiffer tests to come with both Bayern Munich and Inter Milan also in Group C, but Wednesday's victory was the ideal start for Xavi's side.
