Bayern hopeful Lewy, Boateng & Hummels fit for Real

FC Bayern München coach Carlo Ancelotti has expressed hope that key striker Robert Lewandowski as well as defenders Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels will be fit to face Real Madrid.

Bayern face the holders of the UEFA Champions League in a quarter-final second leg tie on Tuesday facing a 2-1 deficit at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Lewandoski has been dealing with a shoulder injury and missed the first leg, as well as the recent Bundesliga 0-0 draw with Bayer 04 Leverkusen. 

Meanwhile, Boateng and Hummels are working hard to overcome minor injuries respectively.

The pair were also unavailable to face Bayer but Ancelotti has revealed he hopes all three stars are fit to face Real. He told the club's official website, "Robert Lewandowski worked individually in Munich and was able to perform all exercises. 

"It looked good. It's a wait and see (with Boateng and Hummels). We hope all three players will be available."
