RB Leipzig’s sports director Markus Krösche does not underestimate record champions Bayern Munich despite the expected failure of world footballer Robert Lewandowski before the Bundesliga summit on Saturday (6.30 p.m.). “Bayern will get a powerful team on the pitch even without Lewandowski,” Krösche emphasized picture.
“Basically, you don’t want anyone to be injured. It’s just that we concentrate on ourselves.”
Lewandowski suffered “damage to the collateral ligament in his right knee” in the Polish national team’s World Cup qualifier against Andorra (3-0), as the Polish association announced. The striker has already left Warsaw for Munich.
The treatment of the injury takes, according to the association, “five to ten days”, even if the sports director gave the all-clear and the picture put the odds against Leipzig at 50:50.
The Polish international was replaced in the 63rd minute of the victory against Andorra on Sunday evening. The striker had previously scored a brace. Lewandowski fell on an opponent’s leg in the penalty area, after which he was sitting on the bench with a thick ice bandage around his right knee.
