Robert Lewandowski was substituted in the 67th minute of FC Bayern's 1-0 away win at FC Augsburg. At the post-match press conference, coach Hansi Flick spoke of the precautionary nature of the move and gave the all-clear: "He already felt something in his muscles this morning, but said he could manage it well. He was supposed to let us know if he couldn't go on, and that's what he did. It was a precaution because Robert is very important for us. We didn't want to take any risks there." Lewandowski showed just how important he is once again with his winner against FCA. Bayern's top scorer now has an incredible 22 goals after just 17 games.
