Chelsea have been give a huge boost ahead of their Champions League last 16 2nd Leg match against Bayern Munich after Striker Robert Lewandowski was confirmed injured, MySportDab reports.
The Poland international has suffered a fracture of the tibia at the left knee joint, meaning he might miss the 2nd leg next month.
The 31-year-old scored during the 3-0 win at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night, with Serge Gnabry also getting a brace.
MySportDab understands Lewandowski is now set to miss four-week of football sidelines and could miss the second leg next month at the Allianz Arena.
Chelsea will surely be excited by the news, with Lewandowski having caused the Blues defence various problems in midweek.
The Bayern Striker has one of the best goalscoring records in Europe and has scored over 400 goals during his stunning football career.
If Lewandowski is not enough to face the Blues, Thomas Muller may be used centrally while Philippe Coutinho will hope to make the starting XI.
Kingsley Coman and Gnabry also provide extra power in attack, but Lewandowski’s absence is surely good news for Frank Lampard’s men.
The Chelsea Coach admitted the first-leg defeat was something of a reality check for his young team, who failed to impress despite a good first half.
Speaking about the game, Lampard said: “The performance was very poor and sometimes you have to be honest.
“They outclassed us in every area and it’s quite sad. The level of team they are is why they challenge in the Bundesliga and Europe every year.”
Chelsea fans will now hope they can turn the tables around during the return leg next month in Germany.
