Bayern Munich may battle Real Madrid in Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League quarter-final match without top striker Robert Lewandowski, according to manager Carlo Ancelotti.
The 28-year-old had an injury scare during the Der Klassiker against Dortmund at the weekend when he was substituted after 72 minutes with a shoulder injury but he returned to training earlier today and participated for 20 minutes, fcnaija reports.
“Robert Lewandowski trained today, just 20 minutes because he had a problem in the last game,” Ancelotti said.
“This morning he had a good sensation. We will check definitely tomorrow.
“If he doesn’t have pain he is going to play; if he does have pain he will not play.”
Lewandowski also gave Bayern an injury scare ahead of the Dortmund game, when he left training early with a sore hamstring and Ancelotti added: “Of course we have to control what he thinks – he had a good sensation in 20 minutes of training.
“I don’t know really tomorrow if he will be ready or not.
“We have to wait but this doesn’t change our idea of the game, our strategy and the confidence we have for this game.”
Lewandowski has scored an incredible 38 goals in 40 matches for Bayern Munich this season.
