DORTMUND, Germany (AP) -Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski is available for Saturday's Bundesliga game against Hannover after his three-game ban is reduced.

Dortmund says the German football federation reduced the ban on appeal to two games, served already against Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Moenchengladbach.

Lewandowski, after scoring Dortmund's only goal, was sent off in the 4-1 loss to Hamburger SV on Feb. 9 for a wild swing at Per Ciljan Skjelbred.

The Polish striker, who has 14 Bundesliga goals this season, could be leaving Dortmund as he's indicated he will not extend his contract, due to expire at the end of next season.
