Robert Lewandowski, the striker of FC Barcelona, is fighting against time to be able to play in Saturday’s hit match of the eleventh round of La Liga against the current leader of the competition and eternal rival – Real Madrid. The Spanish media provide conflicting information about the 35-year-old’s performance in the match.
One of the best strikers in the world – Robert Lewandowski suffered an ankle injury in FC Barcelona’s 1-0 away match in the second round of the Champions League against FC Porto. Not only was he unable to continue playing and left the field prematurely, but it turned out that he had to undergo rehabilitation. Lewandowski did not play in two matches of the Polish national team and in three matches of FC Barcelona (two in the league and one in the Champions League).
The “AS” daily reported that Lewandowski participated in a warm-up with the team during Thursday’s training. Then there was conflicting information about Lewandowski’s performance. First, journalist Javi Miguel informed that the Pole could take a painkiller injection before Friday’s training. If he does not feel any discomfort, he will be allowed to play with Real Madrid. Now it turns out that the Pole is apparently not in favor of such practices. The idea of the coaching staff is for him to come off the bench if there is an urgent need. Tomorrow, after training, a decision will be made regarding Robert’s appointment – writes BarcaInfo, citing the findings of journalist Toni Juanmartin from “Relevo”.
