Liverpool FC Starting XI Prediction vs Bayern Munich (UEFA Champions League)



Anfield is often electric on European nights, and Tuesday night should be yet another example as Liverpool welcomes Bayern Munich for the first leg of their UEFA Champions League knockout round tie. Jurgen Klopp’s men will battle the Bavarian giants in the midst of an injury crisis in defense, and a real selection headache with the potential central pairing.

Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren won’t take part, as both missed the warm training trip to southern Spain, in order to continue injury rehabiliation.

Klopp must continue in with having to play a midfielder or two in the back line. Let’s take a look at who the German might pick in his first team to take on the Bundesliga powerhouse.
