Robert Lewandowski is back in the Bayern Munich side for their Champions League quarter-final second leg clash with Real Madrid.

The Poland international has been missing through injury for the German giants since April 8.

Alonso & Lahm set for Cl farewell?

He missed the first meeting between two European heavyweights at the Allianz Arena as a result, with a Cristiano Ronaldo brace handing Madrid the advantage on the road.

Lewandowski is, however, ready for action in the Spanish capital and will be charged with the task of adding to his 38-goal haul this season.

Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng are also fit enough to reinforce Bayern's backline for a crucial fixture.

Ronaldo will once again lead the charge towards the last four for the hosts.

Isco putting pressure on Bale

Zinedine Zidane has seen his 'BBC' frontline broken up with Gareth Bale missing, but Isco will get another opportunity to impress in the Welshman's absence.

Sergio Ramos, meanwhile, makes his 100th Champions League appearance for the Blancos.
