More bad news for Bayern Munich
If Bayern fans thought the bad news was over once Munich were dumped out the Champions League by Real Madrid, they were wrong.
Not only was Munich’s UCL hopes ended on Tuesday night in Spain, but the Bavarians also received terrible injury news after one of their best players was ruled out for the rest of the season.

So what happened?
Bayern have lost goalie Manuel Neuer for the rest of the season.
Despite playing 120 minutes of football against Madrid, Neuer actually finished the game in Spain with a broken foot.
The damage was caused in injury time, as Neuer suffered the injury immediately before Cristiano Ronaldo sealed his hat-trick to put the holders 3-2 up in the Bernabeu.
Neuer left the stadium on crutches, and Munich have since confirmed that the goalie is now out for eight weeks.
Will the injury affect Bayern’s Bundesliga challenge? That’s doubtful, as Munich have an eight point lead over RB Leipzig with seven games left in the season.
