Neuer equals clean sheet record

Manuel Neuer and the FCB defence are likely to set a new record this season. In Saturday's 2-0 victory away to Berlin the World's Best Goalkeeper kept a clean sheet for the 20th time in this season's Bundesliga campaign. Neuer thus equalled his own league record set last season. He still has three matches to set a new historic best mark.

Atlético without Godin

Atlético Madrid will be without their defensive chief Diego Godin in Wednesday's Champions League semi-final first leg against FC Bayern. The 30-year-old sustained a thigh injury in the 1-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao last Wednesday and will be sidelined, announced the club. “We lose quality without Godin. He's extremely important,” commented head coach Diego Simeone. According to media reports, Godin is also rated doubtful for the return one week later.
