Absent in the first leg, Robert Lewandowski confirmed that he will be too tight to take part in the return leg, despite the accounting situation.
We can never congratulate ourselves on an injury from such a player, but PSG must certainly breathe a little easier since the media release of Robert Lewandowski.
As he was said to be launching in a race against time, the Munich striker confirmed he would miss the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Paris Saint-Germain next week as he continues to recover from a knee injury.
The Bayern Munich forward suffered the blow during the international break with Poland, and he won’t return to the pitch until he feels “really good and safe”.
Orphan of his top scorer, Hansi Flick started Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting on Wednesday night. Author of a goal, the former PSG striker was not unworthy against his former teammates but he came up against, like the whole of Bayern Munich, a Keylor Navas of the great evenings. Without the Parisian goalkeeper, the Munich would perhaps have won this match.
They will finally be on an unfavorable waiver when they return to the lawn of the Parc des Princes in a week. The negative result of the first leg will therefore have no influence on Lewandowski’s return, as he himself said.
“No, [la semaine prochaine] is still too early, “Lewandowski told Sky Sports.” I will do everything I can to get back on the pitch, but only when I feel really safe and secure. It is not a pleasant feeling to be at home. “
With three goals conceded at home, Bayern Munich knows that it will take a small miracle for Paris to open the doors to the semi-finals. It will take at least a 2-0 victory to reach the last four.
Without Lewandowski, the game promises to be complicated but we want to be optimistic on the Bavarian side, given the number of chances in the first leg.
“He has an injury which takes a long time. When a player like Robert Lewandowski is absent, of course it is not nice. Flick said after the meeting. But we created enough chances that we could score four, five or six goals. “
