Lewandowski’s three-match ban

Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has been handed a

three-match ban following his dismissal in the champions’ 4-1 home

defeat to Hamburg at the weekend, the German Football Association

have announced.

Lewandowski had put his side ahead after quarter of an hour but

things quickly turned sour for Dortmund as they conceded two quick

goals before the Poland striker was sent off in the 31st minute of

the match for a crude challenge on Per Ciljan Skjelbred.

Following the defeat, Dortmund have all but surrendered the

title as they fell 15 points behind Bayern Munich.

Lewandowski has 24 hours to appeal against the verdict.
