Liverpool wasted a great chance to hold the advantage coming into the second leg, when they failed to score at Anfield, against Bayern. Despite the match ending without goals, surely the German side will have claimed the moral victory.
If history is any indicator, it’s that Allianz Arena, especially in crunch moments, is not going to be pretty for visitors. And I’m sorry to say this, the Reds do have a tendency to bottle things up after making impressive runs.
Head to head
These two teams have met each other thrice in the last 20 years.
Of these, one was the just-concluded first leg, the other a friendly, and the third one the UEFA Super Cup in 2001.
Liverpool has avoided a loss in these three games, which spans two decades.
The last time these two took on each other at this venue was in the unofficial AUDI Cup. The Reds managed a 0-3 win then.
