Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has been ruled out of the second leg round of 16 Champions League clash with Chelsea due to a leg injury.
The Bundesliga champions made the announcement on their official website on Wednesday.
“Robert Lewandowski fractured the tibia where it meets the left knee joint during yesterday’s 3-0 victory at Chelsea,” a statement by the club reads.
“This is the result of an examination carried out by Bayern chief medical officer Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt upon the team’s return from London on Wednesday.
“After 10 days of immobilisation in a cast, he will start rehab. The striker will be out for around four weeks.”
Lewandowski set up Serge Gnabry twice before adding a third in Bayern’s 3-0 win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
The injury is likely to see him miss the next six games, including the visit of Chelsea.
The 31-year-old has fired Bayern to the top of the table with 25 goals in 23 matches, although Leipzig are lurking just one point behind should the leaders slip up.Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
