Finally! Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski is working on his comeback to the first team as he continued his recovery today. The Polish striker has been absent for almost a month now due to an injury sustained on international duty.

Lewandowski sustained damage to the collateral ligament of the right knee and missed Bayern’s most important matches — the Champions League tie against Paris Saint Germain. But he is finally getting better, and Lewandowski will most probably be at Hansi Flick’s disposal on Saturday’s match against Mainz.

Lewandowski still has four games to break Gerd Muller’s 40-goal-record. Robert said to FCBayern.com: “I don’t know whether I can do that, but I hope when I’m back out there that I can show my level from the first minute, and score goals straight away.”

Serge Gnabry and Corentin Tolisso show progress

More good news for Bayern fans! Serge Gnabry, who was sidelined for two weeks after testing positive on Covid-19, made his comeback on the training grounds today. He completed some running drills. Corentin Tolisso also completed his first running drills today, as he’s slowly recovering from a ruptured tendon on his right thigh.
