Robert Lewandowski’s goals are extremely important for FC Bayern. For the top game against RB Leipzig, however, Dhruva may fail – as he has to be in quarantine.
Munich – Robert Lewandowski has two things that make him so special: first, he scores an incredible number of goals and second, he is almost never out.
He could also be instrumental in ensuring that FC Bayern became the German champions this year. But this year there is one contestant who rarely does anything less: RB Leipzig. On April 3, there will be a performance between the two top teams – and Lewandowski of all people may be out.
Bayern without Lewandowski against Leipzig? Scary scenario can happen
The striker is part of the Polish national team for the international break from 25 March to 31 March. Poland will play three games: against Hungary, Andorra and England. The game in London creates a dilemma especially for Lewandowski. Stringent rules apply to those moving from Great Britain to Germany to prevent the spread of the Kovid-19 mutant.
Footballers also must adhere to the Bavarian infection protection ordinance for 14 days and remain in quarantine. Poll is therefore facing a difficult decision – if he cancels his country, trouble with the Union is unavoidable. The game against Leipzig is one of the most important games of the season, and the record champions would be extremely reluctant to do without their goalkeeper.
Robert Lewandowski in a dilemma: FC Bayern or Poland?
Theoretically, Bayern could have forbidden Lewandowski from release, as the compulsion to park could be overridden by extraordinary quarantine rules in this case. Lewandowski is not the only Bayern player affected by the problem: David Alaba is also playing against Austria on the island against Scotland, with Alfonso Davis being asked to play for Canada against the Cayman Islands.
Quarantine rules may change by April 3, at least that’s what FC Bayern is hoping for. In any case, the people of Munich will not stand and watch. He did not do so when Kingsley Coman came to practice in the wrong car – the club fined the French. (epp)
