Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski will be sidelined for up to a month after suffering a knee injury against Chelsea in the Champions League on Tuesday.
The striker played the entire game and helped the German club win 3-0 at the Stamford Bridge. He assisted Serge Gnabry twice before adding the third for the Bundesliga Champions.
Lewandowski has now scored 11 goals in 6 Champions League games this season. The 31-year old Poland International will now miss the return fixture against the Blues at Allianz Arena.
Following an examination on Wednesday, Lewandowski has been diagnosed with a fracture of the tibia in his left leg, meaning a short spell in plaster before he begins rehabilitation work.
He is expected to be out for up to four weeks.
Bayern hope that Lewandowski will be back in time to face his former club Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga on April 4th.
