How German Newspaper Bild Rated Liverpool And Bayern Munich Players

Shaqiri joined the Reds from Stoke in the summer

Anfield - Liverpool were forced to settle for a 0-0 draw against Bayern Munich in the Champions League last-16 first leg on Tuesday.

Liverpool are now level on points with Premier League leaders Manchester City and have a game in hand.

He also had another opportunity which he fashioned for himself in the second half, albeit tougher than the ones he failed to convert in the first.

Our Bavarian friends came, their fans sang their way through the game...their fans protested about ticket prices. We should play better. Conversely, Bayern stifled themselves too and they were the prime reason that they couldn't find themselves a goal.

"It's the kind of result you get at this time of year".

Speaking after the game, Jurgen Klopp said: "I'm not over the moon but I'm completely OK with the game".

Now, just three points behind in the title race, there is a touch of the Manchester City about Bayern this season. 'They identified the strengths of the Liverpool team, pace, exploiting space, they never gave them that.

The teams will meet again March 13 in Munich in the second leg of their Round of 16 series.

Liverpool didn't relent and pushed continuously, but on countless time they were met with a stubborn defence who stood their ground. Yes, we can play better; we should play better.

Having reached at least the semi-finals of the Champions League in six of the last seven seasons, Bayern were never likely to be rattled by Liverpool or their vociferous fans.

Niko Kovac praised Bayern Munich's disciplined defensive performance against Liverpool but resolved to not revel in a tactical triumph with the job only half-finished in the Champions League.

And before you mention how crap Everton are, the Merseyside derby will still insist upon being the Merseyside derby.

They now face Bayern Munich in the Champions League and Gary Lineker believes a return to the competition they reached the final in past year could be just the tonic to get their season fully back on track. Anyway, we should be a little clearer by the end of the evening!

Old Trafford on Sunday is mammoth. If we had won 1-0 what would have changed really?

I just believe they could have given themselves a better chance by creating more at Anfield.

"It is half full, half empty, I can't remember that many clubs have not lost and not conceded at Anfield, they are a sensationally good team", said the Croatian.
