Liverpool, already dealing with a massive injury crisis in the back line, could also be without one of their top scorers tomorrow night when they Bayern Munich in UEFA Champions League round of 16 action. Forward Roberto Firmino missed training today due to an unspecified virus, making him a serious doubt for the epic Euro clash at Anfield.

Firmino is the fourth Liverpool player who has fallen ill since the beginning of February. Additionally, central defender Dejan Lovren will face a last minute fitness test before the midweek evening kickoff.

“I don’t know 100 per cent. It’s Monday and we play on Tuesday so most of that should be clear,” Klopp told reporters on Monday.

“Gini trained and looked really well. Shaqiri did a lot, so it will be close, we have to see. Dejan, I actually have to wait minute by minute if there is a chance or not. But that’s pretty much all, I would say.”

In addition to all their injury woes, Liverpool must also soldier on against the Bavarian giants without their best defender as Virgil van Dijk is suspended for this one.
