- The Pole was invisible for most of the match and did not make an impact
- Disappointed with the 34-year-old’s attitude were Spanish journalists
Another poor performance by Robert Lewandowski against Bayern
Robert Lewandowski was supposed to be the biggest asset for FC Barcelona’s side, but this time he did not make a difference on the pitch. Bayern Munich effectively cut off the Pole’s passes. The captain of the Polish national team made his presence felt on the pitch only during the situation with the penalty kick, which was ultimately canceled by the referee.
A dry note was not left on the 34-year-old by the Spanish media, which expected a much better performance from him. Lewandowski received low marks from individual journalists, who indicated that this time it was not his match.
“Invisible. It was not his match. The Pole could not find his rhythm of play and felt powerless against the previous team. Throughout the match he didn’t have a single clear-cut chance”
“He didn’t have the ball until the action with the cancelled penalty kick. Are you sure he didn’t miss home?” – wrote Mundo Deportivo.
Madrid’s Marca journalists were even more blunt about the striker’s attitude. In their opinion, almost all of the 34-year-old’s actions were unsuccessful.
“Lewandowski tried to launch a counterattack after Bayern’s goal, but without success. He hit a free kick, but hit the wall. A penalty was dictated on him, but the referee corrected the decision. He did not stand out,” it was written.
