Arsenal have been handed a huge chance of securing three points against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, with news filtering in that the Bundesliga club’s in-form goal poacher Robert Lewandowski is out with injury.
The former Borussia Dortmund ace continued his excellent form this season by grabbing both goals for Poland last night as they ended Scotland’s hopes of qualification for the 2016 European Championships in France.
Lewandowski has, prior to last night’s game, broken all sorts of records: quickest hat-trick in the Bundesliga, fastest four-goal haul in the Bundesliga and of course, the fastest man to score five goals in the Bundesliga.
Furthermore, the former Borussia Dortmund ace was the first substitute to score five goals in the BuLi and indeed any of the five top European leagues and it was also the quickest five goals scored by a player in the UK, Spain, Germany and Italy.
Arsenal made discreet enquiries about the availability Lewandowski this past summer, but Bayern Munich unequivocally rebuffed the Gunners’ approach as they do not want to sell the Polish forward, as reported the Daily Mail.
Lewy could now miss Bayern’s Champions League clash with Arsenal, much to the advantage of the Gunners as the Polish forward is capable of wrecking havoc on any side he comes up against.
The Gunners are in danger of not qualifying out of their group, having lost their first two games and they now have to face high-scoring Bayern and have to defeat the Bavarian giants in the two-legged game if they are to stand a chance.
