Liverpool v Bayern Munich – Preview

As Liverpool prepare for their crunch Champions League tie with German champions Bayern Munich, we whet your appetite for Tuesday’s big game at Anfield.

Manager Jurgen Klopp admits that the clash will be a personal one after managing rivals Borussia Dortmund before his switch to Liverpool…

With Virgil van Dijk suspended for one game after picking up a yellow card in Liverpool’s victory over Napoli in December, club captain Jordan Henderson is looking forward to leading from the back, although Fabinho is more likely to partner Joel Matip in defence.


Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner are expected to overcome illness but we are unlikely to see Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the bench just yet, as he nears match fitness.

The game kicks off at 8pm (not 7.45) and will be shown live on BT Sport 2.
