Dynamo – Bayern. Lewandowski has to play, they won’t let him rest. UEFA Champions League

Robert Lewandowski missed only one game in Bayern this season, in the German Cup with Bremer SV (12: 0). Today he could get a day off, because his team has some promotion to the next round of the Champions League. A year ago, in such a situation, the Pole missed two LM queues.

This time it probably won’t be like that. Lewy will, to some extent, fall victim to the numerous anti-vaccine faction in his team. His unvaccinated understudy Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting was sent to quarantine. And there is no other substitute for the Pole, Bayern, apart from juniors, there is no.

Of course, Thomas Müller could appear in the middle of the attack, as it used to be, but the last time was in March 2020. Since Choupo-Moting joined the team last summer, he has always replaced Lewandowski. Last season, the Pole missed ten matches and the Cameroon representative played instead of him.

Of course, the team was led by coach Hansi Flick at the time, but this has not changed during Julian Nagelsmann’s tenure. In the above-mentioned game against Bremer SV, Choupo-Moting ran out and scored up to four goals. Lewandowski was changed five times this season and he was replaced four times by a permanent substitute.

In addition to Choupo-Moting, other unvaccinated footballers were also sent to quarantine (in Germany, who received the vaccine is released from the quarantine obligation in the event of contact with an infected person): Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry, Jamal Musiala and Michaël Malysance, because they had contact with infected footballers Bayern Niklas Süle and Josip Stanisic, who will of course also not play. Dayot Upamecano, on the other hand, pauses for the cards.

In view of such a number of absences, Nagelsmann is unlikely to decide to save stars, because he lacks players. Lewandowski was in the 18-person squad for the match. There are as many as three goalkeepers and Malik Tillman, who has had one appearance in the first team. In addition, the performance of Kingsley Coman and Marcel Sabitzer is in doubt. The Pole will therefore have the opportunity to improve his achievements in the Champions League. He leads the ranking of the scorers of the current season, with eight goals in four meetings.

Bayern can secure their group victory and cheer up after Friday’s 1-1 defeat against Augsburg. – The Champions League is never without significance. We don’t feel any pressure after losing to Augsburg. Now we can show our reaction to this game – says Nagelsmann.

In Dynama, Tomasz Kędziora is getting ready to play. The Ukrainian champion is fighting for a place in the Europa League, and even theoretically, he still has a chance to advance to the 1/8 final of the Champions League.

Live coverage of this meeting will be available on the Onet homepage and on Onet Sport.
