Liverpool heads to the Allianz Arena tomorrow night to face Bayern Munich in the second leg of the round of 16 in the Champions League. Bayern Munich is without Kimmich and Muller who are both suspended and Liverpool have the option of Virgil Van Dijk to come back in the side which I have no doubt that he will. This is a huge game for the Reds and a must-win match in order for us to progress into the quarter-finals.
Last time out the Reds were held to a 0-0 draw at home but these two teams have only faced each other a total of eight times with Liverpool winning two, drawing five and losing one. Not bad for us considering they last beat us in 1971.
Both teams are heading into this match in good form with Liverpool beating Burnley 4-2 on Sunday and Bayern Munich beating Wolfsburg 6-0 at the weekend. It will be a difficult game for Liverpool tomorrow night and our away record in Europe is not the best this season so hopefully, we can right those wrongs and get the must needed win. Robert Lewandowski will be the one to watch tomorrow night, he seems to shine every time he plays at the Allianz and with him being the top scorer in the competition this season, he is bound to be a handful for defenders.
It is a different feel from last time out, Bayern now sits top of the Bundesliga and are in good form with a lot of players stepping up. Liverpool has been a bit nervous in recent games but seemed to have put that to bed with a win against Burnley so really both teams have it all to play for. When thinking about this game, I’m not nervous but I’m not optimistic either, I’m feeling very neutral at the minute so who knows what could happen.

Now onto my predicted line-up for the game. I think Bayern Munich will go all out attack for this game as with them being at home they will want to put on a show and make sure that they go through to the next round.
This game is so important for us and we must get an early goal I think in order to set the tone for the match and let them know that we mean business.
