I'm not positive , more because of us than Bayern
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.
Bit early to lock the pre match thread with minutes still to go
But yeah, not confident
Think it's gonna be long punts over the top and hope mane or Salah gets on them
We're gonna fuck them up.
Should I wait for the whistle ?
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.
Desmond 2-2 me thinks
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
Salah starts at left wing!
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
Hendo with a shite pass to Robertson ...?
Just to confirm Old Faithful is on the job tonight.
We might get Fabinho after all
