Lewandowski, Robben doubtful for Barca

29 April 2015, 08:35

Berlin - Bayern Munich's top scorers Robert Lewandowski and Arjen Robben are doubtful for next Wednesday's Champions League semi-final, first-leg, against Barcelona after suffering injuries in the newly-crowned German champions German Cup defeat.

Bayern were knocked out of the Cup on Tuesday, ending their hopes of a second treble in three seasons, after losing the penalty shoot-out 2-0 to Borussia Dortmund as the semi-final finished 1-1 after extra-time.

Lewandowski, who has scored 22 goals this season, was taken to hospital after suffering a knock to the head following a goal-mouth collision with Dortmund's Australia goalkeeper Mitchell Langerak late in extra time.

"He's gone to hospital, I don't know how serious the injury is or if he can play against Barcelona," said Bayern coach Pep Guardiola.

Robben, who has netted 19 goals this season, lasted just 16 minutes on his second-half come-back after a month out with torn stomach muscles and limped off with a calf injury.

"He's injured too," confirmed Guardiola, with more details expected on Wednesday.

Bayern's attacking midfielder Thiago Alcantara is also facing a race to be fit to play against his former club Barcelona having come off with a knock to the leg.

The 24-year-old has only recently returned after more than a year out with back-to-back knee injuries.
