Lewandowski out for four weeks with knee injury

MUNICH, GERMANY (AFP) – Robert Lewandowski will be out for “around four weeks” after the Bayern Munich forward picked up a knee injury during Wednesday’s 3-0 Champions League demolition of Chelsea, the Bundesliga leaders announced late on Wednesday.

In a statement, Bayern said that club doctors had discovered that Poland striker Lewandowski had “fractured the tibia where it meets the left knee joint” following tests after their return from London.

The 31-year-old, who scored his 11th Champions League goal this season as Bayern ran out easy winners at Stamford Bridge, will miss the return leg in Munich next month and likely three rounds of matches in the Bundesliga.

Lewandowski top scorer in the Bundesliga with 25 league goals in 23 appearances.
