On Saturday evening Bayern Munich defeated Borussia Dortmund 3-2 in the Bundesliga matchday 14 hit. Robert Lewandowski finished the match with two goals and thus has more goals scored against BVB (26) than played games (25). After the match, Lewandowski shared his impressions about the Golden Ball gala. “The worse moment was a week earlier. I found out about the results a week before the gala. It was a difficult time. And it did not last one or two days. Only more. There was sadness, there was no happiness” – said the forward in an interview with Viaplay.
Robert Lewandowski will not be spared by Julian Nagelsmann. The striker will play against Barcelona
The German daily “Kicker” informs that coach Julian Nagelsmann intends to make some changes before the match against FC Barcelona. Bayern Munich is already confident to advance to the knockout stage from first place, so the coach intends to spare some of his key players from competing in the Bundesliga. Leon Goretzka, who has just returned to the game after a serious injury, will have a chance to rest.
In addition, Kingsley Coman is to sit on the bench, while Thomas Mueller and Leroy Sane will play less than 90 minutes. Among others, Niklas Suele, Serge Gnabry and Jamal Musiala will have their chance to play. The rotation will not include Robert Lewandowski, who is to play in Bayern Munich’s main squad. “Kicker” adds that Eric-Maxime Choupo-Moting has already ended his period of isolation and will be considered by Julian Nagelsmann in his upcoming meetings.
The match against Barcelona could make Robert Lewandowski rebuild his lead in the Champions League scorer classification. The Polish national team forward has the same number of goals after five rounds as Sebastian Haller from Ajax Amsterdam (9 each). The Bayern – Barcelona match will take place on Wednesday 8 December at 21:00.
Expected line-up of Bayern Munich according to “Kicker”:
Neuer; Suele, Upamecano, Hernandez; Gnabry, Roca, Tolisso, Davies; Mueller, Lewandowski, Musiala
