Liverpool, Bayern settle for scoreless draw in Champions League

Bayern Munich have omitted Jerome Boateng and Franck Ribery from their matchday squad to face Liverpool on Tuesday in the Champions League

Liverpool team news: Lovren, Shaqiri, Wijnaldum may play against Bayern

Indeed, Gnabry tormented Liverpool all evening, dribbling past players at will and despite failing to get a clear sight of goal, he gave more than enough to suggest this was a player far removed from the one fans saw back in his Arsenal and West Bromwich days.

Roberto Firmino and Dejan Lovren were both absent from training on Monday afternoon ahead of Liverpool's Champions League round-of-16 tie with Bayern Munich.

Klopp has Alisson in goal, while at the back he plumps for a centre-back partnership between Fabinho and Joel Matip.

Liverpool didn't relent and pushed continuously, but on countless time they were met with a stubborn defence who stood their ground.

Though they handed out ones to both Mats Hummels and Javi Martinez.

They undeniably had an uncharacteristically disjointed start to the Bundesliga campaign, yet since Bayern lost at Jurgen Klopp's former stomping ground in Dortmund-on a day when Borussia Dortmund extended their league lead to seven points-over three months ago, they've lost only one game.

'In games we've seen previously these full backs have played high up the pitch. We should play better.

Khloe Kardashian responds to Tristan Thompson and Jordyn Woods alleged cheating scandal
TMZ reports Tristan attended a house party Sunday night, where witnesses say he was seen snuggled up and making out with Jordyn . And considering that breakup rumors about Thompson and Kardashian , no one is too surprised that the two called it quits .

We were a bit lethargic during the group stages, losing all three of our away ties and now we have begun the knockout stage with a goalless stalemate, against a "safety first" Bayern Munich.

At the moment that is what is missing for Klopp because they built up a head of steam in the Champions League last season, blowing Porto, Manchester City and Roma away on the way to the final.

The hosts succeeded in keeping Lewandowski and his colleagues at bay, though, and with Virgil van Dijk available for the return leg the Reds will still fancy their chances of reaching the quarter-finals. "A lot of people wouldn't have expected that", Klopp added.

"The defending was good".

"It was disappointing last night, but I'm not particularly happy with a lot of the negative sounds coming from a few of the Liverpool fans", he told talkSPORT.

A 0-0 draw isn't a bad result by any means - not conceding an away goal is, of course, a huge positive - but Klopp will have gone into the game hoping for a victory.

"We don't know if something's just been said to him there".

"It's still alive. We've got games before the second leg".
