Liverpool 0-0 Bayern Munich: Jurgen Klopp says draw 'not a dream result'

Liverpool's goalless Champions League last-16 first-leg draw against Bayern Munich is "not a fantasy result but rather a decent one", says chief Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds will head out to the Allianz Arena on 13 March realizing a score draw will bring them into the quarter-finals on away objectives.

Just Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane oversaw shots on focus for Liverpool.

"I'm not excited but rather I'm totally OK with the diversion," said Klopp.

"We made life progressively troublesome with the last pass today - around 10 or multiple times a promising circumstance [fizzled out]. We can play better. We should play better.

"In the principal half we had the greater shots. I can't recall any odds for either side in the second half. It wasn't a Champions League night starting there of view."

Liverpool named Joel Matip and Fabinho in an alternative focal guard, with Virgil van Dijk suspended and Dejan Lovren harmed.

German Klopp revealed to BT Sport: "It was a spotless sheet without the huge man (Van Dijk). Many individuals wouldn't have anticipated that.

"The protecting was great. A great deal of things were great.

"The positive is the outcome is OK, the best draw we can get. Indeed, we can play better; we should play better.

"The tie isn't finished - we said that. We needed to make the premise today around evening time that we can use in the second leg.

We have to score - Lewandowski

Despite the fact that Bundesliga champions Bayern shaded belonging, they didn't deal with a shot on target.

Robert Lewandowski remains the Champions League's best scorer this season with eight objectives, however he has gotten just twice in 12 away Champions League diversions for Bayern.

"It was an extreme diversion," said Lewandowski. "Perhaps we could have scored an objective. Liverpool are a hazardous group. We needed to play minimized for the hour and a half.

"You can never say what will occur in the Champions League. We'll have to score in the event that we need to get into the following round. I trust we can play better at home."

Klopp stated: "If Bayern had been brimming with certainty we may have had more space. Both focus half pairings had a great deal of ball and played around.

"Not a great deal of things occurred. We had our minutes and in those minutes you need to score.

"It was an extreme amusement for the two sides. It was anything but an amusement we will recall in 20 years."

The master plan is that Liverpool are still in it.

It's a decent outcome at home - they haven't yielded and they have each opportunity of going to Bayern and winning.

I simply trust they could have given themselves a superior shot by making more at Anfield.

What's more, I was trusting the fans would have been somewhat more intense - it was exceptionally peaceful. The fans were somewhat anxious. On the off chance that you don't get an objective, you can't unwind.

Klopp reveals one surprise positive for Liverpool to take from Bayern draw


Jurgen Klopp was awed that Liverpool could keep a spotless sheet without Virgil Van Dijk as they drew 0-0 with Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

The exceedingly foreseen Round of 16 conflict neglected to satisfy desires, with neither Manuel Neuer or Alisson Becker truly being constrained into any troublesome recoveries.

Liverpool can remove positives from the diversion however, realizing they didn't permit their rivals a urgent away objective.

"It was an extraordinary amusement for the two sides. It's anything but a diversion we will recall in 30 years. It's the outcome we have and we will work with that."
