Comeback is still being postponed: This is the situation with Manuel Neuer

When FC Bayern play the Champions League game at FC Barcelona tonight, Sven Ulreich will again guard the Munich goal and thus stand in for Manuel Neuer in the fifth competitive game in a row. It is still unclear when the national keeper will be available again.

Since Sven Ulreich has been in goal for FC Bayern, the Munich side have won every game. The 34-year-old was even able to keep a clean sheet in two of four games. The 1.92 meter goalkeeper is doing his thing solidly again and is currently a secure backing for the German record champions.

Nevertheless, one hopes on Säbener Straße that goalkeeper Manuel Neuer returns to the box as soon as possible. Due to a bruised shoulder joint, Germany's number one is missing the fifth competitive game in a row against FC Barcelona. And a comeback doesn't seem to be in sight yet.

Although the 36-year-old completed a running session on Tuesday for the first time in two weeks, goalkeeper-specific training is currently out of the question. According to information from the picture, a game against FSV Mainz next Saturday is also ruled out - although Julian Nagelsmann had toyed with a comeback against the 05ers last week.

Both parties don't want to take any risks if the national team captain wants to take care of the DFB team at the World Cup in Qatar, which begins in November. For Neuer it would be the fourth World Cup in a row. He played his first in 2010 in South Africa. The title in Brazil followed in 2014. In the embarrassing departure in Russia, the former Schalke player was also in goal for the national team. Even then, his commitment was already on the brink after Neuer suffered a metatarsal fracture.
