Both the GOATs are the only two players to have scored more than 200 braces in 21st century. Robert Lewandowski has scored 135 braces in 694 career appearances. That said, he still has a far long way to cross the mark of 200 which looks quite a bit of an impossible task.

Rest of the players have not even crossed the mark of 100. But Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Karim Benzema can complete their century of braces by the end of their careers. Let us tell you that the French striker has played more games than the Swedish legend.

Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani are the only two national teammates in this list and they have almost the same number of career braces. Surprisingly, Cavani has played more matches than the former Barca player and still has two less braces than him.
