Manuel Neuer sustained torn muscle fibres in his calf in Sunday's 4-1 victory over Düsseldorf. That was the diagnosis following an examination by club medics Dr Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt and Prof Dr Peter Ueblacker. The Bayern captain, who had to be replaced in the 53rd minute of the Bundesliga clash, will be sidelined for about 14 days.

Mats Hummels, who left the pitch with a thigh problem shortly before the final whistle, suffered a minor strain and will sit out training for a short while.
