Another blow for Bayern Munich ahead of the tie against PSG. Manuel Neuer broke his leg skiing after Germany got eliminated from the Word Cup and will not be able to play in the Champions League Round of 16 against Paris Saint-Germain.
The World Cup is beginning to have very serious consequences for FC Bayern since a second starter has just been seriously injured after the World Cup currently being played in Doha.
After Lucas Hernandez tore the cruciate ligaments in his knee in the first 10 minutes of the competition, it is now emblematic Bavarian goalkeeper Manuel Neuer who was seriously injured.
It did not happen on the soccer field. Neuer was enjoying a little vacation trying to forget the elimination of his national team on skis while he suffered the injury this week.

As he explained on his Instagram account, the goalie broke his leg while on vacation and his season is over. In other words, he will not be able to participate in the Round of 16 against PSG scheduled to start on Feb. 14 (with the second leg taking place on Mar. 9).
A hard blow for Bayern who will have to rely on their second goalkeeper Sven Ulreich.
As a reminder, Sadio Mané is also very uncertain for the tie.
