Robert Lewandowski was back in Bayern Munich training on Sunday following the club’s scoreless draw with Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday. This was his first full training session since injuring his shoulder in the second half against Borussia Dortmund.

Following training, Lewandowski spoke to FCBayern.tv.

“I fee fine. I was able to take part in team training today, and everything was ok. I’m very pleased to be back and that I can play in Madrid. We have to work hard and give everything we can. We know it won’t be easy — Real Madrid are very strong at home, but we have to play as if we were at home ourselves. That could be a decisive factor. We need to score. I hope that we play with attacking intent but also ensure that we stay strong defensively.”

Defensive question marks abound for Bayern, however. Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng both trained individually on Sunday as they recover from injuries, and Javi Martinez is suspended for the return leg.

So, what’s the option of neither Hummels nor Boateng can go on Tuesday? Joshua Kimmich and David Alaba are your centerbacks.
