Dortmund striker Lewandowski’s ban ends on appeal

Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski is available for

Saturday’s Bundesliga game against Hannover after his three-game

ban is reduced.

Dortmund says the German football federation reduced the ban on

appeal to two games, served already against Eintracht Frankfurt and

Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Lewandowski, after scoring Dortmund’s only goal, was sent off in

the 4-1 loss to Hamburger SV on Feb. 9 for a wild swing at Per

Ciljan Skjelbred.

The Polish striker, who has 14 Bundesliga goals this season,

could be leaving Dortmund as he’s indicated he will not extend his

contract, due to expire at the end of next season.
