Bay­ern star to miss Celtic clash

The Herald (South Africa) - - SCHOOL SPORT -

CELTIC were handed a boost ahead of to­day’s Cham­pi­ons League match at home to Bay­ern Mu­nich as in­jury ruled out the Ger­mans’ star striker, Robert Lewandowski.

The 29-year-old hot-shot in­jured his left thigh in the first half of Bay­ern’s 2-0 win over RB Leipzig on Satur­day and stayed in Mu­nich when the squad flew to Scot­land yes­ter­day.

Lewandowski is Bay­ern’s top scorer this sea­son with 13 goals.

Sec­ond-placed Bay­ern need a win in Glas­gow to keep the pres­sure on Group B lead­ers Paris Sain­tGer­main, who are three points clear at the top, while Celtic are third.

Head coach Jupp Heynckes had hoped Lewandowski would be able to play at Park­head, but took the de­ci­sion to rest the Poland in­ter­na­tional ahead of Satur­day’s Bun­desliga clash at Borus­sia Dort­mund.
