Bayern Munich vs PSG
Bayern Munich return to European action next month.
The German powerhouse smashed Lazio 6-2 over two legs in the last-16 to book their spot in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Bayern have been drawn against Ligue 1 side PSG in the quarter-finals, which was of course the matchup that took place in last season’s showpiece, with Bayern coming out on top in that meeting.
PSG, though, look a formidable force in the CL once again this term, hammering FC Barcelona in the previous round.
Lewandowski injury latest
And, ahead of next month’s fixtures, Bayern have been dealt a huge blow on the personnel front.
News was forthcoming on Monday that 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.
Following the announcement of the hitman’s injury, there was some speculation that he would 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 now released the following statement on their 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 the time of his injury announcement on Monday would take us to around the 26th of April.
And with Bayern set to face PSG on the 7th and then 13th of April, it does look as though they will be forced to make do without Lewandowski against the Parisians.
