In what can only be described as shocking as well as heartbreaking news, Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has been ruled out for approximately four weeks, as confirmed by the club official twitter account.

Initial reports had suggested that the 32-year old was doubtful for the crucial Bundesliga game against RB Leipzig, but could return just in time for the UEFA Champions League season defining clash against Paris Saint-Germain. The Poland FA president even assured that there’s nothing to “panic” about, at that time.

As it turns out, however, Lewandowski’s injury was much worse than expected, who has sprained ligaments in his right knee.

The absence of Lewandowski in both of the UCL quarter-final legs has undoubtedly tipped the scales in favor of opponents PSG. Up until now, the Bavarians were running riot with the Pole at the helm, breaking goal scoring records almost every match and outscoring opponents whenever the defense had a bad day. Now, with the best player in the world sidelined, Bayern Munich’s season, not only in UCL but also in the league, has been put in serious jeopardy.

We, at BFW, wish our favorite Robert LewanGOALski a speedy recovery!
