Is it what we all wanted?? No, a scoreless draw at home in the first leg isn’t the dream result, but it also isn’t the worst thing that could of happened. Liverpool were far from their best today and still should of won this game. The fact that a team like Bayern Munich came to Anfield and parked the bus tells us what the world thinks of Liverpool’s attack and the atmosphere at Anfield on special European nights. The biggest thing for me about todays game was the fact that they got a clean sheet, no away goals for Bayern Munich is huge heading to the Allianz for the final leg in Germany. The fact that Liverpool accomplished this with Joel Matip and Fabinho who is a central midfielder is even more impressive. I honestly thought with Virgil Van Dijk out and the likes of Robert Lewandowski out there for Bayern, we would concede at least one today.
Like Jurgen Klopp said it could of been better, but a draw just might do the trick here to get Liverpool onto the final eight. A 1-0 win or even a 1-1 draw and Klopp’s men will be through to the next round. Bayern not getting an away goal today is a massive boost for Liverpool heading into the next leg. Hopefully Liverpool can tighten up their finishing at the Allianz and the lads can carry on in this competition. The second leg doesn’t go until March 13th, so until then we gotta lead in the Premier League to hold onto. With a big one this Sunday against our most hated rivals Manchester United. Lets enjoy this ride and remember YOULL NEVER WALK ALONE!!!
