Robert Lewandowski has missed just one game for Bayern this season, in the German Cup with Bremer SV (12:0). Today he can have 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 electrode missed the LM queue.
This time it might not be like that. Lewis will, in a sense, fall victim to the many anti-vaccine factions on his team. His unvaccinated student Eric Maxim Chubu-Moting has been sent into quarantine. And there is no other alternative to the Polish, Bayern Munich, except for the juniors, there is no.
Of course, Thomas Muller could appear in the middle of the attack, as before, but the last time was in March 2020. Since Chubo-Moting joined the team last summer, he has always replaced Lewandowski. Last season, the Polish missed ten matches and the Cameroon representative played in his place.
Of course, the team was led by coach Hansi Flick at the time, but this did not change during Julian Nagelsmann’s tenure. In the aforementioned match against Bremer SV, Chubu Moting ran out and scored up to four goals. Lewandowski has been replaced five times this season and has been replaced four times by a permanent replacement.
In addition to Choupo-Moting, other non-vaccinated players were also sent to quarantine (in Germany, those who were vaccinated were exempted from quarantine in case of contact with an infected person): Joshua Kimmich, Serge Gnabry, Jamal Musiala and Michel for misconduct, because they were In contact with injured footballers Bayern Niklas Sule and Josip Stanisic, who of course will not play either. On the other hand, Dayot Upamecano pauses for cards.
With so many absences, Nagelsmann is unlikely to decide to save the stars, because he lacks players. Lewandowski was in the 18-man squad for the match. There are up to three goalkeepers and the owner of Tillman, who once appeared in the first team. In addition, the performances of Kingsley Coman and Marcel Sabitzer are in doubt. Thus, the pole will have the opportunity to improve its achievements in the Champions League. He is the top scorer this season with eight goals in four matches.
Bayern can secure their group win and rejoice after Friday’s 1-1 defeat to Augsburg. The Champions League is not without its importance. We don’t feel any pressure after the loss to Augsburg. Now we can show our reaction to this game – says Nagelsmann.
In Dynama, Tomasz Kędziora prepares to play. The Ukrainian champion is fighting for a place in the European League and, even in theory, still has a chance of advancing to the 1/8 final of the Champions League.
Live coverage of this meeting will be available on the Onet homepage and on One Sport.
