The Bayern star matched a mark set by the Brazilian star in 2005 while continuing his incredible form in London
Gnabry scored a pair of second-half goals in Tuesday’s win as Bayern stormed away to a 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge.
The Germany winger fired the first two of those goals, with the first coming in the 51st minute as he tapped home a cross from Robert Lewandowski.
His second found the back of the net just three minutes later, with Lewandowski once again laying on the assist.
As a result of his second-half double, Gnabry became the fifth visiting player to score at least two goals in a Champions League match at Stamford Bridge.
In addition, he became the second player to ever accomplish that feat in a knockout match, something only Ronaldinho’s had done previously.
The Brazilian star’s double came in a much happier affair from a Chelsea perspective, as the Blues scored four goals of their own to run away as 4-2 winners over Barcelona in 2005 to book a spot in the quarter-finals.
Gnabry’s brace saw the German star continue his dominance in London having already scored four goals away to Tottenham in the group stage this season.
As a result, Gnabry became the first player in Champions League history to score each of his first six goals in the competition against teams from the same country.
The 24-year-old, who played in London for Arsenal from 2011-16, has scored 10 goals while providing eight assists in the Bundesliga this season while adding an additional goal in the DFB-Pokal.
With Tuesday’s victory, Bayern will head back to Munich with a massive advantage for the second leg, which is scheduled for March 18.
