Manuel Neuer Produced An Outrageous 60-Metre Throw Last Night

Manuel Neuer displayed a ridiculous level of distribution in Bayern Munich's 3-0 Champions League semi-final win over Lyon last night.

The Bayern shot-stopper produced a stunning one-one-one save to deny Karl Toko Ekambi and showed just how a complete goalkeeper he is later on in the second half.

With 77 minutes on the clock, Neuer launched an utterly outrageous throw-in right into the path of Philippe Coutinho down the left flank.

It really was a thing of beauty as the 34-year old turned defence into attack in an instance.

Neuer kept his fifth clean sheet in the Champions League as Bayern reached the final courtesy of goals from devastating double act Serge Gnabry (2) and Robert Lewandowski.

A win over Paris-Saint Germain in Lisbon will give the Bavarian outfit a sixth European title, while it will also replicate the famous treble achievement from seven years ago under Jupp Heynckes.

Neuer was in the sticks for that all-conquering side, which contained legends like Franck Ribery, Arjen Robben, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Philipp Lahm.

But the Bayern skipper believes the current crop at the Allianz Arena is even better as he paid tribute to the work done by Hans-Dieter Flick following the dismissal of Niko Kovac in November.

Speaking to journalists last night, Neuer said: "We are better positioned across the board.

"Now we have a class that not only includes the 18-man squad, it is fantastic what a great team we have.

"Calm characterises him [Flick], especially before games like this.

"He prepared us very well for the games, no matter which opponent we played against. We always have a plan. You can see the result on the pitch."

Remarkably, the starting XI from last night's win cost just £90 million to assemble - with Neuer the most expensive member of the side at a reported £27 million.
