Bayern injury shock: Robert Lewandowski breaks jaw, ‘could miss rest of season’

Fola Akintomide

Robert Lewandowski could reportedly miss the rest of the season after suffering a nasty injury in Bayern Munich’s cup loss to Borussia Dortmund.

Bayern’s German Cup semi-final defeat to Borussia Dortmund ended their treble hopes but also took a real toll on their squad, with Lewandowski, Thiago Alcantara and Arjen Robben all sustaining injuries in the penalty shoot-out defeat.

Robben was making his first appearance in over a month but lasted only 16 minutes before feeling a tight calf, while Thiago suffered what the club describe as a “painful knock”.

However, the greatest concern surrounds Lewandowski, who scored Bayern’s goal, after he was clattered by Dortmund keeper Mitchell Langerak. He is almost certain to miss next week’s Champions League semi-final first leg against Barcelona and could be sidelined for the remainder of the season.
