Robert Lewandowski will miss Bayern Munich’s crunch games against RB Leipzig and Paris Saint-Germain, the club have confirmed. Meanwhile, a decision on controversial reforms to the Champions League has been postponed.
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has been ruled out of Saturday’s top-of-the-table Bundesliga clash with RB Leipzig, and will also miss both legs of the Champions League quarterfinal against Paris Saint-Germain.
The Pole picked up a knee ligament injury on international duty against Andorra last week and Bayern have now confirmed following their own tests that the striker will be out for four weeks.
With 35 goals in just 26 games already this season, Lewandowski had Gerd Müller’s record of 40 Bundesliga goals (in 1971-72) in his sights, a challenge which will now be more difficult with just eight games remaining.
And with Bayern defenders Jerome Boateng and Alphonso Davies also suspended for Saturday’s game, RB Leipzig will have an opportunity to close the gap on the leaders to just one point and reignite the title race.
