Robert Lewandowski set to return for Bayern Munich against Real Madrid

Bayern Munich goal machine Robert Lewandowski says he expects to be fit in time for his side’s Champions League quarter-final second leg tie against Real Madrid on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old, who has scored 38 times in all competitions this season, came off with an injured shoulder in Bayern’s 4-1 Klassiker triumph over Borussia Dortmund last Saturday, meaning he missed the first leg – which Real edged 2-1 after a pair of Cristiano Ronaldo goals.

“I’m very happy,” Lewandowski said after taking part in a training session including Bayern’s youth players on Sunday. “I’m extremely satisfied that I could be part of training today. Everything is okay.”

Coach Carlo Ancelotti is expected to restore the Poland captain to the starting line-up, with Thomas Müller dropping to the bench. The Italian tactician has less options further back, though, with centre-backs Mats Hummels (ankle) and Jerome Boateng (adductor) still injury doubts.
