    Based on the starting 11s, I think Bayern are the favorites in this tie. Their 4-2-3-1 has a clear, elegant structure: a solid base with Javi Martinez, Thiago alongside him stringing passing moves together, James as the killer pass specialist in the middle, pace and goal threat from the wings and world's best #9 up front. Meanwhile, Klopp went with a midfield of 3 attack-dogs who will do their best to disrupt and snuff out threats, but I don't see how we can build enough positive counter-play to really trouble Bayern. The best hope is front 3 pouncing on a mistake or creating something on their own. It's not going to be an enjoyable game.

    Sorry, was in the middle of doing it!

    Fabs, I always lock the pre match thread 5 mins before kick off. Dunno why, just did it & then we won, so kept doing it.

    My CL thread record is poor this season though, so fine if someone else does it.

    I hadn't realised Hummels was playing ....

    He's capable of a Lovren

    The midfield is uninspiring, hard-working yet uncreative & lacking an edge.

    It's a 'don't lose' midfield', when I wanted an aggressive attacking side tonight, he's being too conservative & showing them way too much respect imo.

    Hopefully, Klopp shows why I'm a nobhead sitting on my couch & he's a millionaire footy manager.

    Time for Salah to really show something.

    Mane starts out on the right

    Alaba gave Salah no space whatsoever in teh first leg , so I wondered how we'd address that

    Interesting that Mane and Salah are swapped to start.

    Virgin Sport's commentator clearly has prepared a fact about each player that he's dying to get into his commentary
