Neuer's Bayern understudy ruled out with injury
Germany goalkeeper Manuel Neuer can expect a busy end to the season after his Bayern Munich back-up Tom Starke underwent surgery on Saturday for an elbow injury.
The 33-year-old Starke is expected to miss the rest of the season and Bayern's reserve team goalkeeper Leopold Zingerle was promoted to the squad for Saturday's Bundesliga match at Augsburg.
The 19-year-old is fourth choice at Bayern behind Neuer, Starke and Lukas Raeder, who was ruled out for the next two weeks after damaging his ankle in training on Friday.
Pep Guardiola's Bayern have already been confirmed as Bundesliga champions in record time and are bidding to repeat last season's feat of winning the Champions League, German league and cup titles.
Bayern have a busy period coming up as they face Manchester United in the Champions League quarter-final second leg on Wednesday, after last week's 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, and host Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga next Saturday.
