Berlin (AP) – FC Bayern Munich lost Saturday in the Bundesliga match at 1. FC Cologne (3.30 pm / Sky) according to information from “Bild” and “Sport Bild” about star striker Robert Lewandowski.
The 32-year-old Pole would not have traveled to the cathedral city with the team. When asked, the German record champions gave no reason.
Head coach Hansi Flick is likely to spare the Bundesliga’s top scorer given the heavy burden of the league and the Champions League. On Friday Lewandowski trained normally with the team. Most recently, Europe’s Footballer of the Year was missing in the 2-1 win against Borussia Mönchengladbach in mid-June – at the time due to a yellow card suspension. Lewandowski currently tops the Bundesliga scorers list with ten goals from the first five games.
