Bayern's Lewandowski included in squad for Barcelona game

05 May 2015, 11:57

Berlin - Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski was included in the German champions' squad for their Champions League semi-final, first leg at Barcelona on Wednesday despite serious facial injuries sustained last week.

The Poland striker fractured his nose, upper jaw and suffered a concussion in their German Cup loss on penalties to Borussia Dortmund last week and was doubtful for their game in Spain.

But Bayern said he was part of the team set to fly out to Barcelona later on Tuesday as they look to make their fourth Champions League final in six seasons.

Lewandowski sported a carbon mask in training on Monday and will wear it against Barcelona as well should he be picked to play.

The 26-year-old, who joined from Dortmund last season, had been in sensational form in recent weeks, scoring nine goals in his last 11 matches for the Bavarians, who last week secured the Bundesliga title.
