#4 Sven Ulreich (Bayern Munich) 

Fussball DFB Pokal Halbfinale 16/17: FC Bayern Muenchen - Borussia Dortmund
Ulreich deserved a place in the squad ahead of Kevin Trapp

Though the general public will remember Sven Ulreich for his glaring mistake against Real Madrid in the Champions League semifinal, the reality is that the Bayern Munich goalkeeper has fared brilliantly in the absence of Manuel Neuer throughout this season. 

Taking Neuer's place in the team since September, Ulreich has been an integral member under Jupp Heynckes and made crucial saves over the course of the season. In Bundesliga, Ulreich kept 12 clean sheets in 26 matches and conceded just 20 goals. 

After a successful campaign for the Bavarians, Ulreich frankly deserved a place in this provisional squad ahead of PSG's Kevin Trapp. The PSG goalkeeper started just 3 league games this season and has not been a first choice keeper for the French side.
