With Real Madrid, three time holders, now eliminated from the current UEFA Champions League competition, the highest finisher still alive from last year’s tournament is Liverpool FC. By no means are they the favorites though, or even close, as the odds makers and projectionists see their opponent Wednesday night, Bayern Munich, to beat them and advance to the quarterfinals.

The two teams played to a goalless draw in the Anfield leg, so from an aggregate stand point, the Reds will have a good advantage due to the fact that they did not concede any away goals.

Liverpool do have some fitness issues to be concerned with in this one. Midfielder James Milner is a doubt while defender Joe Gomez is now closing in on a return having recovered from surgery to repair the fractured leg he suffered in Liverpool’s win over Burnley in late 2018.

It seems likely that right back Trent Alexander-Arnold will be fit despite coming off injured against Burnley yesterday. According to James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo, Jurgen Klopp’s decision to withdraw the youngster was only due to “precaution,” not from necessity.

Bayern will be missing a pair of players, due to suspension, in Thomas Muller and Joshua Kimmich, while they do have some fitness concerns as well. The venerable Arjen Robben (calf) and Corentin Tolisso (knee) are out injured for the Bavarian juggernaut while Kingsley Coman is a doubt.
