Bayern Munich goalkeeper and captain Manuel Neuer will miss Wednesday’s Champions League trip to Czech side Viktoria Plzen with a bruised shoulder, his club said.
The German champion will clinch a place in the last 16 with two games to spare should it win and Barcelona fails to beat Inter Milan at Camp Nou.
Bayern has won all three games so far in Group C but will also be without Matthijs de Ligt, Serge Gnabry and Alphonso Davies against Plzen.
Sven Ulreich is expected to fill in for Neuer in goal. Thomas Mueller will take over as captain following his return from a COVID-19 infection.
