Berlin - Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski is doubtful for next Wednesday's Champions League semi-final at Barcelona with a fractured cheek-bone from their cup defeat to Dortmund while Arjen Robben's season is over.

Lewandowski, who has scored 23 goals this season, spent the night in hospital with concussion and also a broken nose after a goal-mouth collision with Borussia Dortmund's Australia goalkeeper Mitchell Langerak late in extra time of Tuesday's 2-0 German Cup semi-final home defeat on penalties, the club has confirmed.

"It's a few more days till the match at Camp Nou, I really hope I will be able to play!" Lewandowski wrote on his official Twitter account on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old could still line up against Barcelona at the Camp Nou on May 6 by wearing a special mask before the return leg in Munich on May 12.

"How long he (Lewandowski) will be out for will only be known after a more detailed examination," said Bayern in a statement.

Their cup semi-final defeat shatters Bayern's dreams of repeating their 2013 treble of European, cup and league titles having won the Bundesliga title last Sunday.

Robben joins Franck Ribery, David Alaba and Holger Badstuber on Bayern's injury list.
