Manuel Riemann will not be available for VfL in the Bundesliga match against Bayern Munich. The keeper felt a little unwell on Wednesday afternoon and a Covid 19 test that was subsequently carried out came back positive. So, our number 1 is now in domestic quarantine for the time being. We hope for a mild course and a return to training as soon as possible.
Michael “Bruno” Esser will therefore stand between the sticks against the record champions and make his second league appearance of the season. On Matchday 14, the 34-year-old was on the field in the away win at Augsburg, and Esser also played in the DFB-Pokal against FCA until the penalty shootout.
