Bayern Munich vs PSG
Bayern Munich will return to European action next month.
The German powerhouse smashed Lazio 6-2 over two legs, to book their spot in the Champions League’s quarter-finals.
Bayern, in turn, have been drawn against Ligue 1 outfit PSG – of course a reunion for the two sides who played out last season’s final, which the former eventually won.
PSG, though, look a formidable force once again this term, having hammered Barcelona in the previous round.
Lewandowski injury latest
And, ahead of next month’s fixtures, Bayern, on Tuesday, have been dealt a huge blow on the personnel front.
News was forthcoming on Monday that Robert Lewandowski had picked up a knock whilst on international duty with Poland, and would play no part in the country’s World Cup qualifier against England on Wednesday.
On the back of the announcement of the hitman’s injury, speculation spread that he was likely to recover in less than a week:
Nie piszcie bzdur. Gdyby mecz z Anglią był o Tytuł MS to @lewy_official pewnie by grał. Za 5/6 dni będzie po problemie( słowa i analiza lekarzy). Proszę nie siać paniki..

However, Bayern have since released the following statement regarding their star striker:
Robert Lewandowski has strained a ligament in his right knee. The FC Bayern striker will be out for around four weeks. After Poland’s 3-0 win over Andorra, Lewandowski returned early to Munich, where a diagnosis was made by the German record champions’ medical team.

Four weeks from today’s announcement would take us to around the 26th of April.
As such, with the German champions set to face PSG on the 7th and then 13th of April respectively, it looks as though they will be forced to make do without Lewandowski against the Parisians.
