Bayern - Liverpool
Bayern will welcome Liverpool in the return match of the 8`th finals of the Champions League. The first one ended 0:0 so the hosts can be happy with that. There were a couple of moments for Liverpool in the first match but all together they showed too little. They showed exactly as much as they show in the league lately. They did beat Burnley 4:2 at home in the last match but it was closer than that. The usual score for Liverpool lately is 0:0 as they don`t look capable in attack anymore. With 4 draws in the last 7 league matches they have given the lead in the championship and I think some people would be glad they don`t progress in the Champions League.
Liverpool was great in the Champions League in the last season, especially on away ground. That clinical counter-attacking football is not to be seen this year and the results have been underwhelming. A 1:0 loss to Napoli, 2:0 loss to Crvena Zvezda, a 2:1 loss to PSG. That was their 5`th away loss in the Champions League in a row.
Bayern has awakened in the league and they won the last 5 and 12 of the last 13. They are scoring a lot and against not so average team. M`Gladbach was crushed with 5:1 and Wolfsburg with 6:0. They are leading the league and the mood in the dressing room is finally good. At home, they dominate and have won the last 7 matches. In the last CL match, they brushed aside Benfica with 5:1. Lewandowski has hit his stride and Gnabry is scoring as well. At this ground Bayern can, I believe, take out any team. And with the confidence level being high they will do it.
Bayern is without Robben, Kimmich, Muller, Tolisso, and Coman. Liverpool will be missing Gomez and Chamberlain with Milner being a doubt.
I have my faith in Bayern today.
