Berlin: Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski trained with a protective mask and could face Barcelona in tomorrow's Champions League semi-final, first-leg, despite a broken cheekbone, Jerome Boateng confirmed yesterday.
"He moved well and made a good impression, it looks like he's fit and motivated to play," Bayern defender Boateng told reporters in Munich after training with Lewandowski.
"He didn't have any fear, he is very brave and he will get used to the mask, I don't think it'll be much of a problem."
The 26-year-old Lewandowski, the German champions' top-scorer with 23 goals, sat out Bayern's 0-2 league defeat at Bayer Leverkusen to try and get him fit for the first leg.
The striker broke his nose, cheekbone and suffered concussion during a clash with Mitchell Langerak late in Munich's German Cup semi-final defeat to Borussia Dortmund.
