Robert Lewandowski will stay out of action for a few weeks after suffering a knee injury.

Bayern Munich have been hit with a huge blow as they recently announced that Robert Lewandowski will spend the next better part of the next month on the sidelines.

Lewandowski was in scintillating form during his side’s Champions League match last night. He was involved in all three goals as he set up Serge Gnabry twice and scored himself once to help Bayern walk away with a 3-0 victory from London.

Unfortunately, the Pole also picked up a knee injury during the match against Chelsea.

Bayern recently released a statement explaining the nature and extent of his injury. The medical report, as on the club’s official website, read:

“Robert Lewandowski broke the tibia in his left knee joint during yesterday’s 3-0 victory at Chelsea.

“This is the result of an examination carried out by Bayern medic Dr. Hans-Wilhelm Muller-Wohlfahrt upon the team’s return from London on Wednesday. After 10 days of immobilization in a cast, he will start rehab. The striker will be out for around four weeks.”

The 31-year old is set to miss the return leg of Bayern’s Champions League Round of 16 clash. He will also miss out on the DFB-Pokal quarter-final against Schalke along with a handful of Bundesliga fixtures.
