COPA DEL REY: Robert Lewandowski to miss Spanish Cup El Clasico

The news that Robert Lewandowski would miss the first leg of the Cup del Rey against Real Madrid has dashed Barcelona’s hopes of winning the El Clasico.

Lewandowski has succumbed to a hamstring strain, which will keep him out of action for at least the next three games, the club said through Twitter.

Lewandowski’s availability for the first team will depend on his rehabilitation, but Barcelona did not provide a timetable for his arrival.

Lewandowski may need a few days to a few weeks to recuperate from a hamstring injury, so he won’t be able to play for Barcelona when they visit the Bernabeu in the Copa del Rey.

Lewandowski might also miss Barcelona’s LaLiga game against Valencia this weekend, but will almost certainly be available for the Copa del Rey second leg against Real Madrid at Camp Nou.
