The Italians playing for PSG have suddenly become favourites to reach the Champions League semi-finals after Bayern Munich confirmed Robert Lewandowski is out for a month.
He picked up a knee injury on international duty with Poland and tests showed there was more damage than previously thought.
“Lewandowski has strained a ligament in his right knee,” read the statement.
“The FC Bayern striker will be out for around four weeks. After Poland’s 3-0 win over Andorra, Lewandowski returned early to Munich, where a diagnosis was made by the German record champions’ medical team.”
This means Lewandowski will miss both legs of the Champions League quarter-final against Paris Saint-Germain.
Although there are no Italian sides left in the Champions League, there are three Italy internationals in the PSG squad, namely Marco Verratti, Alessandro Florenzi and Moise Kean.
