Ahead of their crucial top-of-the-table clash with RB Leipzig on Saturday, Bayern has been dealt a potential cruel blow with striker Robert Lewandowski injuring ligaments in his knee against Andorra in Poland’s 3-0 win in their World Cup qualifier where he scored twice.
Poland released a statement on Lewy’s injury and confirmed he will miss the match with England on Wednesday to avoid any further injury. Lewandowski has returned to Munich to get treatment and he will be pushing to play a part in Bayern’s clash with Leipzig on Saturday.
A statement from the Polish FA on Monday morning said Lewandowski, who captains the national side, had sustained ligament damage in his right knee and would be out for up to 10 days.

Injuries are never a good thing but the timing of Lewandowski’s is anything but helpful with his injury having the potential to rule him out of the Leipzig clash as well as the Champions League quarter-final match with Paris Saint-Germain just four days later.
Lewandowski is vital to Bayern’s success this season with 42 goals in just 36 matches and Hansi Flick will be desperate to have him back in the lineup as soon as possible.
