Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski is out for the next four weeks after sustaining knee ligament damage while on international duty.
It means the Polish star, who is Bayern’s top scorer this season with 42 goals in 36 games, will miss the Champions League quarter-final tie against PSG and would be a doubt for the semi-final first-leg too.
He will also miss five Bundesliga matches, include this weekend’s game against title rivals RB Leipzig, in a blow to Hansi Flick’s team as they look to defend their German and European crowns.
