Leipzig has confirmed that it does not expect Bayern Munich to look much weaker in the absence of its Polish striker Robert Lewandowski from the scheduled match between the two teams next Saturday in the twenty-seventh stage of the German football league (Bundesliga).
Before the upcoming match between the two teams at Leipzig, Bayern Munich are four points ahead of second-placed Leipzig.
“Bayern will push for a competitive team even in the absence of Lewandowski,” Leipzig’s football director Marcus Kruishe said in comments published in the German newspaper Bild on Tuesday.
Lewandowski, the Bundesliga top scorer with 35 goals, suffered a knee ligament injury during his participation with the Polish national team in the match against Andorra yesterday, Sunday, in the European qualifiers for the 2022 World Cup finals scheduled in Qatar.
Lewandowski is expected to be absent from five to ten days, which is likely to be absent from the match against Leipzig.
Lewandowski is due to undergo more medical examinations today, Tuesday, in Munich.
Bayern Munich is looking to win against its closest rivals Leipzig, taking a big step towards winning the Bundesliga title for the ninth consecutive season.
