Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer says he is confident of making the Champions League showdown with Liverpool next week.

Neuer suffered an injury to his right hand in the build up to the game with Bayer Leverkusen a few weeks ago, sparking fears he could be looking at a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

However the problem is not as serious as first feared, and there is a very good chance he could be ready for the Round of 16 first leg clash against the Reds.

“I am fine, it’s not that bad,’ the Bayern skipper said.

‘I think our medical staff will push me into the goal and if everything is fine in training, I will play against Liverpool.

“It’s the first game for me at Anfield.

I’m looking forward to playing there.

We have heard a lot about the atmosphere in the stadium, everyone who watches football knows it’s special and I think they will be two great games.”
