MUNICH (AP) - Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola says he will not know until shortly before the match whether striker Robert Lewandowski will play on Wednesday in Barcelona in the Champions League semifinals.

Guardiola says “we will see his condition on Monday, Tuesday,” adding that “the doctor is the chief.”

Lewandowski suffered a concussion and facial fractures in the German Cup semifinal loss on Tuesday when was slammed by Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Mitch Langerak.

Bayern has lost winger Arjen Robben for the season with a calf injury. Franck Ribery is still nursing an ankle injury he sustained in March.

Guardiola says “Bundesliga is over” after Bayern secured the title Sunday and indicated he would rotate heavily Saturday at Bayer Leverkusen.
