Season over for Sven Ulreich
FC Bayern Munich will be without goalkeeper Sven Ulreich for the remainder of the season. The 28-year-old shot-stopper suffered an injury to his right elbow in training ahead of the Darmstadt game and will miss the final games before the summer break. With No. 1 Manuel Neuer also missing with a fractured foot, Tom Starke was brought in between the sticks for the Darmstadt fixture. Leon Weinkauf from the reserves was on the bench for the game.
