How long will Robert Lewandowski be out for?

Robert Lewandowski’s club, Bayern Munich, had hoped he would be able to play in Saturday’s title clash against RB Leipzig.

After his initial assessment, the club’s medical staff rated his chances of being fit for that game at 50/50.

However, it has now been revealed that the Pole is set for a one-month layoff.

A Bayern statement read: “Robert Lewandowski has strained a ligament in his right knee.

“The FC Bayern striker will be out for around four weeks.

“After Poland’s 3-0 win over Andorra, Lewandowski returned early to Munich, where a diagnosis was made by the German record champions’ medical team.

“The 32-year-old had scored the first two goals in Sunday’s match, before having to leave the field after an hour following a clash.”

Which other matches will Robert Lewandowski miss?

As well as the crucial matches between England and Poland and RB Leipzig and Bayern, Lewandowski will miss key games in his club’s Champions League campaign.

The striker is now certain to miss both legs of Bayern Munich’s quarter-final with PSG – a repeat of last year’s final.

Should the Germans beat the Parisians, they will play Man City or Borussia Dortmund in the semi-final, with those games taking place on the weeks of April 27/28 and May 4/5.

It is not yet known whether Lewandowski will be fit for one or both legs of a potential Champions League semi-final.
