Lewandowski Out Of PSG Tie Despite Return To Training

Robert Lewandowski returned to training on Monday after a knee injury, but Bayern Munich say the striker “is not available” for Tuesday’s Champions League quarter-final return leg at Paris Saint-Germain.

Champions Bayern trail the Parisians 3-2 from the first leg in Munich after striker Kylian Mbappe netted twice for PSG in the encounter.

Lewandowski, 32, voted FIFA’s best male player of 2020, injured ligaments in his right knee a fortnight ago while on international duty with Poland.

The Pole was ruled out for four weeks but appears to have made a quicker than expected recovery and took part in running drills on his return to training on Monday.

Lewandowski has scored 35 league goals this season, leaving him just five short of Gerd Mueller’s all-time Bundesliga record set in 1971/72.
