Because of Manuel Neuer's absence FC Bayern have reinstated keeper Tom Starke for the remaining Champions League games. UEFA granted the request by the German record champions on Monday. 36-year-old Starke ended his playing career this summer, despite appearing in the Audi pre-season Tour, but can now start on the bench for the away game against Paris Saint-Germain at 20:45 on Wednesday. Although not permitted with outfield players, clubs can replace and exchange goalkeepers in the squad during the group stage.
