Former Bayern Munich resident, Altintop believes that the absence of Lewandowski and the thirst for a PSG title have redistributed the cards.
After Messi against Mbappé in the previous round, we were eagerly awaiting the scoring duel between the French striker and Robert Lewandowski. Unfortunately, the international break came through and the Poland international got injured, finding a way to be out for four weeks.
If he hopes to speed up his rehabilitation to be present for the return match, Lewandowski will be one less poison to manage for PSG, this Wednesday evening at the Allianz Stadium.
“This is very bad news for Bayern Munich, said Hamit Altintop exclusively at Goal. Now let’s see how good they are. How will they be without Lewandowski? It is very interesting for all football fans. “
“He’s been incredible, 35 league goals already, and now Bayern have to find a way to cope without him.”
For the former Bavarian midfielder, the absence of Lewandowski must allow Hansi Flick as well as the rest of the squad to prove that they are not dependent on their striker, even if the latter has this faculty not not get injured and missed a minimum of matches.
If the PSG must deal with the Covid-19 (Verratti, Florenzi) and the suspensions (Paredes), Bayern Munich has seen its offensive sector decreased in recent hours, in addition to the absence of Lewandowski.
Tested positive for an antigen test, Serge Gnabry is not yet sure to be in the game this Wednesday evening. One less alternative for Flick while the former Arsenal acted as Robert Lewandowski’s regular replacement.
“If you see the German national team’s three games, Gnabry has played ahead. Maybe Bayern can play that way too, kind of like Manchester City, where No 9 is more of a No 10 or a n ° 11. “
“They can play with Sané on one side, Coman on the other and Muller in the lead as always.”
“Before Lewandowski’s absence I thought Bayern Munich in two games were of course favorites. But now without him it will be very interesting.”
“And with Neymar’s return, that will make it even more difficult. This Parisian team is so focused on the Champions League. They really want it.”
