Bayern's Manuel Neuer out for rest of season with foot fracture

22 April 2017

After losing 2-1 in the opening leg at the Allianz Arena, Bayern managed to force extra time by winning 2-1 in 90 minutes at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Defender Mats Hummels says Bayern Munich can not afford to dwell on their Champions League exit to Real Madrid in their quest for Bundesliga and German Cup silverware.

Marcelo twice cleared off the line for Madrid and Jerome Boateng did the same for Bayern in a thrilling game, which was tilted in Madrid's favor by Arturo Vidal's dismissal for two yellow cards, the second of which was harsh.

Neuer, who last month underwent what was described by the club as a minor operation on his left foot, picked up this latest injury during the build-up to Ronaldo's third goal, which put Madrid 3-2 up on the night. "There are decisions that have penalised us a lot".

Ronaldo had scored only two goals in the eight Champions League games he had played before the quarterfinals. The visitors' frustrations grew when an offside Ronaldo restored Madrid's aggregate lead in extra-time.
