Lewandowski has scored 39 league goals this season -- one short of Gerd Mueller's Bundesliga tally of 40 in 1971/72.

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, who is one short of the Bundesliga’s single-season goal record with two games remaining, left team training early on Thursday, the club has confirmed. Lewandowski has scored 39 league goals this season — one short of Gerd Mueller’s Bundesliga tally of 40 in 1971/72.

However, he only trained for 40 minutes on Thursday ahead of Saturday’s match at Freiburg.

In a statement, Bayern said Lewandowski “trained a little shorter than the rest of the team" because of his workload, having been sidelined for three weeks in April by a knee injury.

However, German newspaper Bild reported the Poland attacker suddenly pulled up and had to stop training, looking visibly annoyed.
