Manuel Neuer would’ve been one of the heroes should Bayern Munich have triumphed over Real Madrid on Tuesday.

Instead, it may be his final time in a Bayern shirt this season.

Neuer made a number of fantastic saves in the late stages of Bayern’s ill-fated comeback bid at the Bernabeu.

To add injury to insult, Neuer broke a bone in his foot on Cristiano Ronaldo’s third goal of the 6-3 aggregate loss.

You can see Neuer pull up in pain as he adjusts to Marcelo’s choice to pass across to Ronaldo.

Sven Ulreich is Neuer’s back-up, and has made seven appearances the past two seasons. The 26-year-old arrived from Stuttgart in 2015, and will likely be backed up by veteran Tom Starke.

Bayern has an 8-point lead on RB Leipzig with five matches to play and will likely still win the Bundesliga title, regardless of whether Neuer returns this season.
