Watch: Lewandowski makes history with hat-trick as Barca thrash Plzen
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.
