Lewandowski wary of Zenit

19 March 2014, 16:14

Dortmund -Robert Lewandowski has warned his Borussia Dortmund teammates nothing is decided ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash at home to Zenit St Petersburg despite their 4-2 first leg advantage.

The Poland striker scored twice in their last-16 opening match in Saint Petersburg three weeks ago, which puts them on the verge of a place in Friday's quarter-final draw in Nyon, Switzerland.

Dortmund crashed to a shock 2-1 defeat at home to Borussia Moenchengladbach on Saturday and Lewandowski has warned his side they can ill afford a similar performance against Zenit at Borussia's Westfalenstadion.

"We are not through yet, nothing has been decided and if we play like we did against Gladbach then we must be careful," said Lewandowski, Dortmund's top-scorer in Europe with 18 Champions League goals, but who will join rivals Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

The Poland hot-shot already has six goals this season and became the first player to score four times in a Champions League semi-final last April against Real Madrid.

Dortmund will be without Germany winger Marco Reus, who scored in the first-leg and missed training on Tuesday as he struggles to get over a leg injury.

Borussia welcome back playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who missed the Moenchengladbach defeat with suspension, while Germany centre-back Mats Hummels is looking for a run of form having struggled with injury this season.
