Liverpool go to Germany for their return match in the UEFA Champions League against Bayern Munich. Their first match ended with a hopeless draw at Anfield, but now the fight will take place in Munich at Allianz Arena.
Liverpool reached the final last season, but Bayern and their manager Niko Kovac occupy a dominant position in the Bundesliga, despite weak results at the start of the season.
Jürgen Klopp’s Reds are losing to Manchester City in the Premier League race, but four goals against Burnley this weekend gave them confidence before the ordeal in Munich on March 13.
Liverpool is very hopeful that Trent Alexander-Arnold will be able to enter the field, despite the injury in the game against Burnley.
Adam Lallana’s impressive game against Burnley gave Klopp information for thought, although Jordan Henderson may well return to midfield. Nabi Keita is also a good alternative, especially with his experience against Bayern for RB Leipzig.
Bayern Munich were far from the best this season, but they have 12 wins from the last 13 games in the Bundesliga, which allows them to remain in the top for the number of goals scored.
