BERLIN (Reuters) - Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer will miss the club’s next two league matches due a training ground injury that required minor surgery, the German champions said on Thursday.
Neuer underwent surgery on a foot injury late on Wednesday, ruling him out of their Bundesliga matches against Augsburg on Saturday and Hoffenheim on Tuesday, Bayern said.
The Bavarians, who are chasing a treble of titles this season, are 13 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga with nine games left and are close to a record-extending fifth consecutive league crown.
They also face Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals next month.
