Lewandowski scored twice in the weekend in win over Borussia Dortmund - to take his tally to 16 goals in his last 12 matches for club and country.

The 28-year-old has scored in each of Bayern's last six home matches in all competitions and is offered at (1.65) to score on Wednesday, though we are not sure of how fit he is, considering that he got a knock in the weekend.
