Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool are back where we belong

Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool are back where we belong

Not since Bayern's Wembley win against Dortmund in 2013 has a Champions League been won without one of them in the victorious team and there has been no sign of either of them slowing up in this season's competition.

"The first goal was ridiculous really, how he finished it off, the calmness and the finish".

Bayern, who had reached the Champions League semi-finals in six of the last seven seasons and last failed to reach the quarter-finals in 2011, did not unduly trouble Liverpool who had Van Dijk back in defence following a suspension. I felt yourself [Van Dijk] but also Matip, he gets the own goal in the first half - it wasn't a mistake it's just one of those things - I thought he was outstanding as well at the back.

"If you look at the stats, the only reason they had more possession was because Liverpool kept giving them the ball".

And Van Dijk's statistics reflect his mighty European outing.

Right now, he is the best defender in the world, with nobody anywhere questioning his value.

Bayern Munich are facing up to another season without Champions League glory after losing to Liverpool and Robert Lewandowski has made his unhappiness with his team's tactics clear. "We have a lot to improve, a lot to learn, but we are back and I like that very much". Hummels reads the game well, but his lack of pace is his and Bayern's Achilles' heel, while Sule is strong and athletic but cumbersome with the ball at his feet.

His last three scoring games have all been doubles and his timing could not have been more impeccable just as concerns were being expressed about Mohamed Salah's form of three goals in the last 10 and none in the last six - easily his longest run without scoring for Liverpool.

With the quarter-final draw set to take place on Friday morning, Liverpool legend Carragher insists his old club can use their latest victory as a springboard to win the competition come May.

His statistics are even better when restricted to the Premier League with 17 shut-outs in 30 matches, which has allowed Klopp's side to take on Manchester City head-to-head as they trail the defending champions by just a point.
