Player to watch – Robert Lewandowski

Robert Lewandowski’s future is uncertain but he remains one of the best finishers in the business when he’s on top of his game and he has been clinical in recent matches.

The Polish striker scored his 13th club goal of the season in midweek but it wasn’t enough to prevent Barca going down 4-2 in Bilbao in the Copa del Rey.
