Barcelona's star striker Robert Lewandowski is facing uncertainty ahead of the Clasico Copa del Rey semifinal first-leg match against Real Madrid after the club confirmed he has a hamstring strain.
The extent of his absence is unknown, but the team is already missing Pedri and Ousmane Dembele due to injuries.

Lewandowski, who has scored 25 goals in all competitions this season, is the team's top scorer after joining from Bayern Munich last summer. While some sources suggest he may be out for two weeks, others believe he could return sooner.
The first leg of the cup tie is set for Thursday, with the second leg scheduled for April 5. Barcelona hopes to have all their injured players back by then.
Barcelona suffered consecutive defeats in the Europa League and LaLiga, where it's suspected Lewandowski picked up his injury. Despite this, Xavi Hernandez's side is seven points ahead of Real Madrid at the top of the table.
