Bayern Munich vs Liverpool report: Liverpool match report
Liverpool produced a brilliant performance to beat Bayern Munich 3-1 at the Allianz Arena to go through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
Sadio Mane scored a brace, while Virgil van Dijk netted the other. Joel Matip scored the own goal for the Bavarians.
Around the 26th-minute mark, a long ball from Van Dijk was beautifully brought down by Mane. The Senegalese star then had the composure to turn and leave two Bayern defenders for dead. A chip into an empty was the icing on the cake.
The home side came back into it when Serge Gnabry made a good run in behind Andy Robertson and delivered a good ball across goal. With Robert Lewandowski behind, Matip couldn’t have done much but turn the ball into his own net five minutes from half-time.
Jurgen Klopp’s men came out in the second half and started controlling the game. Twenty minutes from time, a James Milner corner found the head of van Dijk, who rose the highest to give the away side an all-important lead.
Then in the 84th minute, Mohamed Salah got into the act with a delicious outside of the boot cross for Mane to glance it into the back of the net.
All in all, it was a perfect away European performance from Liverpool, who controlled the game against one of the best teams in the world.
