Liverpool will be hoping to build a good lead to take with them to Germany as they host Bayern Munich On Tuesday Evening . Bayern Munich know they really need to score a goal to give themselves a good chance of progressing.
Liverpool were not in action on the weekend having already been eliminated from the FA Cup. That means Liverpool have had 10 days to prepare for this match.
Liverpool have lost only one game at home all season and that was against Chelsea in the League Cup. In the Champions League, trends show Liverpool are undefeated in their last ten at home and have won seven of their last eight.
Bayern Munich are on a good run in terms of wins and they have won eight of their last nine matches in all competitions. Away from home Bayern Munich have lost only one of their last eight in all competitions.
Looking ahead to the team news and Liverpool could have problems in defence. Virgil van Dijk is suspended and there are doubts over the fitness of Dejan Lovren. That could mean a central defensive partnership of Joel Matip and Fabinho.
Bayern Munich are without the suspended Thomas Muller plus the injured duo of Corentin Tolisso and Arjen Robben. Kingsley Coman should be fit to start after picking up a knock on the weekend but Jerome Boateng and Franck Ribery have not travelled.
Liverpool’s problems at the back could see Bayern Munich get an away goal but with their front three fresh, Liverpool will be expecting to score goals. This should be a great game and we could see a home win with both teams scoring.
PREDICTION : LIVERPOOL 3-2
ACCUMULATOR TIP : Over 2.5
