(Sad) LEWANDOSKI misses training ahead of REAL MADRID CLASH

Manuel Neuer is likely to be fit for the Champions
League quarter-final, but the Polish striker could be
unavailable after he missed training
Robert Lewandowski was unable to train with his
Bayern Munich colleagues on Monday as the striker
tries to recover from a shoulder injury in time to
face Real Madrid in the Champions League on
'Versatile Muller could play in goal!'
Carlo Ancelotti suggested after Lewandowski scored
twice in Saturday's 4-1 Klassiker victory against
Borussia Dortmund that Lewandowski would be fit
for the first leg at the Allianz Arena.
But the Poland international - who has hit seven
goals in eight Champions League games this season
- could not work with the group on Monday and
instead trained alone, although Manuel Neuer
continued his recovery from foot surgery with
involvement in the session.
Thomas Muller also trained with his Bayern
colleagues and the attacker is expected to be
available to face Madrid, with excitement growing at
the Bundesliga leaders ahead of the clash.
"We are well prepared," said Muller. "I participated in
the normal training and this is a good sign.
"We are full of self-confidence. This is a huge game
in Europe with two top teams. Of course the
anticipation is great.
"You also notice it in the environment, not only in
the media, but also when you meet friends or
acquaintances in Munich. Everyone is talking about
the game."
Bayern will be without centre-back Mats Hummels
for the Madrid game as the Germany international
has suffered a ligament injury to his right ankle.
