Liverpool FC are set to face Bundesliga (Germany’s top-flight football league) champions Bayern Munich in the first leg of UEFA Champions League round of 16 match. Ahead of the anticipated fixture, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp stated that he expects a difficult Bayern Munich side despite their recent lack of form.

Anfield Stadium is to welcome the Germans on Tuesday in the full knowledge that Bayern has conquered the Bundesliga title the past six seasons in a row, reports Efe news.

However, the German side has lost points this season because of defeats and draws, and is currently chasing standings leader Borussia Dortmund.

“After being six years the dominator of the (German) league, it was clear this year would be different,” Klopp said at a press conference.

“To become the champion you need to have the desire of a newcomer combined with the quality of a real contender. At the beginning of the season maybe they did not have that but now they are chasing the situation.

“From my point of view that makes them even more dangerous,” Klopp, the former coach of Dortmund, added.

“Let’s enjoy the game together. We are a really strong side and that is what we have to show.”

Liverpool’s coach also stressed that he, and even any other coach, is living the season match by match. (IANS Inputs)
