Neuer, 31, underwent minor surgery on Wednesday evening after damaging his left foot in training earlier in the day. Though the operation was a success, Neuer will play no part in Bayern's next two league matches - at home to Augsburg on Saturday and at high-flying Hoffenheim on Tuesday.

Sven Ulreich is likely to deputise for the Germany number one, who has yet to miss a minute of action this season.
