Hat tricks conceded by Manuel Neuer | Occasions where 3 or more goals have been scored against Bayern & Germany goalkeeper Neuer

Which players have scored hat tricks against Manuel Neuer in club and international football?

Bayern Munich and Germany international Neuer is widely regarded as one of the world’s best goalkeepers, but here is the list of players who have scored hat tricks against Neuer.

Robert Lewandowski for Dortmund (BVB 5-2 Bayern, 2011/12 DFB Pokal final, 12 May 2012)

Sergio Aguero for Man City (MCFC 3-2 Bayern, 2014/15 UCL group stage, 25 November, 2014)

Cristiano Ronaldo for Real Madrid (RMA 4-2 Bayern, 2016/17 UCL QF second leg, 18 April, 2017)

Dodi Lukebakio for Dusseldorf (Bayern 3-3 Fortuna, 24 November, 2018- 18/19 Bundesliga)

Ferran Torres for Spain (Espana 6-0 Germany, 17 November, 2020, 20/21 UNL Group 4)

Interestingly, the Lukebakio hat trick is the only time when Neuer has conceded three at home- all the others have been away or at neutral venues.

6’s everywhere as Germany are trounced 6-0 by Spain!

Germany’s 6-0 loss to Spain in the Nations league in Seville sent shockwaves back in the country, and the player ratings from the country’s biggest media outlets (see pics below) reflected that.

6 is actually the lowest score in the German grading system, and somewhat aptly, most of the German players in the 6-0 loss got that grade, bar keeper Manuel Neuer.

Will this lead to Jogi Low getting the sack? Most Germans seem to want him gone, but the federation is sticking with him, atleast for the time being.

Predicted Lineups for Swiss clash- Toni Kroos set to earn 100th cap for Germany

Real Madrid star Toni Kroos is set to earn his 100th international cap for Germany as they take on Switzerland in a crunch Nations League clash tonight.

Kroos will become the 12th Die Mannschaft player to reach that landmark, and is expected to partner Bayern Munich’s Joshua Kimmich in midfield. Germany are two points behind Spain in their group, and if they drop points, that gap could increase to four or five points by the end of Match Day 4.

Germany’s poor run of results has seen Joachim Low come under increasing pressure at home, and he will be keen to ensure that this in a win after their 1-1 draw against the same opponents in Basel last month.
