This is the last news Bayern Munich wanted, as Robert Lewandowski will be out injured for a pivotal stretch of their season.

Lewandowski, 32, was injured while on international duty with Poland and returned to reigning European champions Bayern as he missed their World Cup qualifier against England.

The red-hot striker (who has scored 35 goals in 25 Bundesliga games this season and 42 in 36 games in all competitions) has suffered ligament damage in his right knee and will miss the next month.
