The happiness of some is the misfortune of others, and hope began to spread in the French capital on Sunday when Lewandowski finished the Poland-Andorra match (3-0) with a knee injury.

Choupo-Moting to replace it?
Lewandowski therefore withdrew the shock against Leipzig on Saturday, the first leg against PSG four days later and the return leg the following week. A priori, he could be back at the end of April, against Mainz in the Bundesliga, on April 24. As a reminder, the Champions League semi-finals will take place three days later …

What fallback solution for Flick? As a scorer, the German technician can count on Lewandowski and… Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting, defector from PSG last summer and the only other N ° 9 in the profession. Obviously, it is not excluded to see Thomas Müller help out in the absence of the Pole but, one thing is certain, part of the sky has fallen on the head of Bayern!
