If Bayern Munich is preparing for its Champions League quarter-final return against PSG (Tuesday at 9 p.m., on RMC Sport 1), Robert Lewandowski is back on the training grounds. Too short to face Paris, the Pole resumed the race on Monday.
No, Robert Lewandowski will not be able to play the quarter-final second leg of the Champions League of Bayern Munich against Paris Saint-Germain on Tuesday evening (9 p.m., to be watched live on RMC Sport 1). But injured in the ligaments of the right knee with his selection on March 28 and a match against Andorra (3-0), as part of the qualifications for the 2022 World Cup, the Polish international resumed training on the ground this Monday with Bayern Munich.

A little racing, two weeks later
If he was initially to be absent “between five to ten days” according to the Polish Federation, the 32-year-old striker had so far only carried out sessions on the exercise bike and indoor recovery. He therefore only gradually regained the race, two weeks later.
The Bavarians did not want to take any risks with their top scorer, 35 goals in 25 Bundesliga games this season, plus 5 in 6 Champions League games. Despite being on his way home, Lewandowski will obviously be too short for the return leg against Paris, as well as for Saturday’s match against Wolfsburg in the Championship, according to German media Bild. He should be assisted at the forefront of the Munich attack by the former Parisian Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting.
