Following last month’s 0-0 draw, Bayern have won only one of their eight matches in European competition against Liverpool.That came in the Cup Winners’ Cup in November 1971, courtesy of two goals from Gerd Muller and one from Uli Hoeness in a 3-1 win in Munich.The clubs’ only previous encounter in the European Cup before this last-16 tie came in the 1980-91 semi-finals, with Liverpool progressing on away goals after a 1-1 aggregate draw, before going on to beat Real Madrid 1-0 in the final.
FC Bayern certainly have plenty of momentum heading into the midweek tussle, too, as they have won 11 of their last 13 matches, which includes fie successive wins in the German top flight.
Liverpool, The Reds played out successive away draws against Manchester United and Everton, both finishing 0-0 to make it three stalemates in four matches heading into Sunday’s home clash with Burnley.Only a victory would do for Liverpool following Manchester City’s 3-1 win over Watford a day beforehand to move four points clear at the top, and they managed to pick up all three points after falling behind to a contentious goal early on, prevailing 4-2 in the end.
