Bayern München will have to manage without Manuel Neuer when they take on RB Leipzig at Red Bull Arena on Saturday.

Speaking at a press conference today, Bayern coach Niko Kovac said that the goalkeeper, who has struggled with a calf injury in the past weeks, is expected to return to full training next week at the earliest.

"Manuel Neuer is nearly there. We hope that he can return to training next week," Kovac said in a personnel update, as quoted by the club.

"Javi Martinez sustained a knock to his calf yesterday, and didn't take part in training today. He is a doubt. James Rodriguez trained for the first time back with the squad today. Robert Lewandowski worked individually," he added.

Bayern are four points clear of Borussia Dortmund at the top of the Bundesliga with two games left to play this season.
