      Bobby being out would almost be as big as VVD missing.

      We'll look shaky at the back without the Dutchman and we'll look clunky in attack without the Brazilian.

      It's time for the rest of the squad to stand up and be counted.

      Gone for a narrow win tonight. Not been following Bundesliga but heard it mention that Bayern have improved since the turn of the year.

      Take it thats the longest break of the rest of season done?

      I am just nervous without VVD and possibly Firmino now :( First time I have felt this way this season.

      so you felt confident about City away, I know I didn't!

      Even if Bobby is not fit tonight we still have enough to beat these.

      Id probably play Lallana as a 10, personally if Bobby is out though, and if the shaq id still unfit.

      Huge game and a big week for us.

      For me I'd have Fabinho with Matip and midfield three of Gini, Hendo and Keita.

      The rest of the team picks itself.

      I've no idea how good Bayern are but we always get up for these games so I fancy a win to take to Munich.

      There's hardly ever an easy game when you get to the knockout stages.

      If we play our best we can go through, it won't be easy but we can do it.

      Hi everyone :)

      I wanna give you an update on our current form and my prediction as a fan. I'm pretty sure, we will play in that way:

      ------------------------------------Neuer------------------------------------
      ---Kimmich------------Süle-----------------Hummels---------Alaba-------
      -------------------------------Martínez--------------------------------------
      -----------Thiago-------------------------James---------------------------
      --Gnabry------------------------------------------------Coman-----------
      ------------------------Lewandowski--------------------------------------

      Until last friday against Augsburg we had to play 3 matches without Neuer, cause he had issues with his thumb. Tendinitis i think is the english word. He is not at 100%. He can't be. You already saw it against Augsburg, that he was a little bit afraid to save as always. Once he saved like a beachvolleyball player. Lol.

      I think Kimmich has to defend Mané and this should be a huge problem for Kimmich. His attacking skills are quite good, but defense isn't Kimmich's best part. His positional play is awful and he had complicity that we were 0-1 down against Augsburg after 13 seconds.

      Next one: Süle. Has the potential to be one of the best german defenders in the future, but right now? Horrible form and I wish Boateng could play, but he's out for todays match due to gastrointestinal complaints.
      Hummels plays awful since 2 years. Just watch our DFB Pokal match against Hertha. In every single match he has one big dropout.

      Alaba is fine, but his weakness will always be the defensive part and against Salah tonight? Pheeeeew. Salah's gonna have a party.

      Martínez lost his regular place in the Bundesliga, cause in the league we play much more offensive than we will do tonight. Therefore he will play, but without much playing practise, cause Kovac has the opinion he didn't need one. So we only can trust Kovac and believe me, we don't trust him very much ;)

      Thiago and James are in a fantastic form and as a Duo they are brillant. Problem: Thiago isn't a man for big games. His Performance in Madrid last year was awesome, but in all the other big games in the Champions league? Man, it's to despair. On the other hand you have James, who is the perfect man for big games.

      Gnabry was our best man in the last games. He scored some Goals, he is very fast, has some good ideas.. just sometimes he is selfish and Lewandowski is like, damn man! Just pass the ball to me!

      Coman, mhh. He had to leave the field friday due to an injury. After the match, the first media said "It doesn't look good, he will not be able to play against Liverpool!" One day later, all clear, he can play. Sunday: He maybe can play. Yesterday he did the full Training and so I think he is able to play, but is he at 100%? I don't know. However. I like Coman. He is as fast as Gnabry, maybe a little bit more and he gets over every Defender. But his huge problem is, even though he scored 2 goals on friday before he was fouled, his shoot skills are are worse than mine ;) seriously, it's really bad and he also needs to improve his last pass.

      If Ribery has to play, good night. Soon a 36-year old man, who can't help us anymore. At least not in the Champions League and especially not against a team like yours.

      And the last one. Robert Lewandowski. The only hope, we Bayern fans have tonight are your central defenders. Lewandowski would have Problems with Virgil (and Gomez), but Matip and Fabinho? There could be some attacks, where he will get his chances and he does really well this season.

      So, how will the match end? I can speak for nearly every Bayern Fan i talked to or i read in social media, Forum etc. - we do not believe, the we will win this match. We would be very happy about a draw, but everyone think Liverpool wins 3:1, 3:0, whatever. You have the better team and the better Coach. In the tactical way Klopp knows exactly how to play Bayern, but does Kovac know how to play Liverpool @Anfield tonight? I don't believe so. I think we will play extremly defensive and just look for Counter attacks. Man, not even in Amsterdam we played offensive und tonight against Liverpool we should attack? Never, believe me. We will do everything that Salah, Firmino and Mané at least can't play their speed Advantages.

      Our last matches also didn't make hope. Augsburg is one of the worst teams in the league and we just won 3:2. Against Hertha we had to go into overtime, against Leverkusen we took the lead and still lost 3:1. Against Stuttgart, also one of the worst teams in the league we won 4:1, but don't believe the result. Stuttgart was so close to the 2:1, we just had luck and they are too bad in the defensive play.

      And honestly, you know what I see in your team? The same as I saw in my Bayern team 2013. 2012 we lost the league title to Dortmund, the DFB Pokal to Dortmund and the Champions League to Chelsea and in the next year this team wanted to win f**king everything, whatever it costs. I feel that it's your turn. That it's finally Klopp's year to win the Champions League, but I hope for a wonder. Everything's possible in football and as a Bayern fan I already had some matches, that I never thought we would bin, but we did.

      Have a nice day and a beautiful match tonight :)

      Superb analysis! But believe me mate, you are Bayern Munich - one of the most successful teams in world football and an absolute giant of a club. This will be some football match and Bayern have quality all over the pitch, with one of the best strikers of all time leading the line.

      ;D Like a boss Miro mate. :D

      Sitting in front of my PC for hours now, got so much sh*t to do, but can't concentrate for the life of me. Time couldn't pass any slower.

      Hi everyone :)

      I wanna give you an update on our current form and my prediction as a fan. I'm pretty sure, we will play in that way:

      ------------------------------------Neuer------------------------------------
      ---Kimmich------------Süle-----------------Hummels---------Alaba-------
      -------------------------------Martínez--------------------------------------
      -----------Thiago-------------------------James---------------------------
      --Gnabry------------------------------------------------Coman-----------
      ------------------------Lewandowski--------------------------------------

      Until last friday against Augsburg we had to play 3 matches without Neuer, cause he had issues with his thumb. Tendinitis i think is the english word. He is not at 100%. He can't be. You already saw it against Augsburg, that he was a little bit afraid to save as always. Once he saved like a beachvolleyball player. Lol.

      I think Kimmich has to defend Mané and this should be a huge problem for Kimmich. His attacking skills are quite good, but defense isn't Kimmich's best part. His positional play is awful and he had complicity that we were 0-1 down against Augsburg after 13 seconds.

      Next one: Süle. Has the potential to be one of the best german defenders in the future, but right now? Horrible form and I wish Boateng could play, but he's out for todays match due to gastrointestinal complaints.
      Hummels plays awful since 2 years. Just watch our DFB Pokal match against Hertha. In every single match he has one big dropout.

      Alaba is fine, but his weakness will always be the defensive part and against Salah tonight? Pheeeeew. Salah's gonna have a party.

      Martínez lost his regular place in the Bundesliga, cause in the league we play much more offensive than we will do tonight. Therefore he will play, but without much playing practise, cause Kovac has the opinion he didn't need one. So we only can trust Kovac and believe me, we don't trust him very much ;)

      Thiago and James are in a fantastic form and as a Duo they are brillant. Problem: Thiago isn't a man for big games. His Performance in Madrid last year was awesome, but in all the other big games in the Champions league? Man, it's to despair. On the other hand you have James, who is the perfect man for big games.

      Gnabry was our best man in the last games. He scored some Goals, he is very fast, has some good ideas.. just sometimes he is selfish and Lewandowski is like, damn man! Just pass the ball to me!

      Coman, mhh. He had to leave the field friday due to an injury. After the match, the first media said "It doesn't look good, he will not be able to play against Liverpool!" One day later, all clear, he can play. Sunday: He maybe can play. Yesterday he did the full Training and so I think he is able to play, but is he at 100%? I don't know. However. I like Coman. He is as fast as Gnabry, maybe a little bit more and he gets over every Defender. But his huge problem is, even though he scored 2 goals on friday before he was fouled, his shoot skills are are worse than mine ;) seriously, it's really bad and he also needs to improve his last pass.

      If Ribery has to play, good night. Soon a 36-year old man, who can't help us anymore. At least not in the Champions League and especially not against a team like yours.

      And the last one. Robert Lewandowski. The only hope, we Bayern fans have tonight are your central defenders. Lewandowski would have Problems with Virgil (and Gomez), but Matip and Fabinho? There could be some attacks, where he will get his chances and he does really well this season.

      So, how will the match end? I can speak for nearly every Bayern Fan i talked to or i read in social media, Forum etc. - we do not believe, the we will win this match. We would be very happy about a draw, but everyone think Liverpool wins 3:1, 3:0, whatever. You have the better team and the better Coach. In the tactical way Klopp knows exactly how to play Bayern, but does Kovac know how to play Liverpool @Anfield tonight? I don't believe so. I think we will play extremly defensive and just look for Counter attacks. Man, not even in Amsterdam we played offensive und tonight against Liverpool we should attack? Never, believe me. We will do everything that Salah, Firmino and Mané at least can't play their speed Advantages.

      Our last matches also didn't make hope. Augsburg is one of the worst teams in the league and we just won 3:2. Against Hertha we had to go into overtime, against Leverkusen we took the lead and still lost 3:1. Against Stuttgart, also one of the worst teams in the league we won 4:1, but don't believe the result. Stuttgart was so close to the 2:1, we just had luck and they are too bad in the defensive play.

      And honestly, you know what I see in your team? The same as I saw in my Bayern team 2013. 2012 we lost the league title to Dortmund, the DFB Pokal to Dortmund and the Champions League to Chelsea and in the next year this team wanted to win f**king everything, whatever it costs. I feel that it's your turn. That it's finally Klopp's year to win the Champions League, but I hope for a wonder. Everything's possible in football and as a Bayern fan I already had some matches, that I never thought we would bin, but we did.

      Have a nice day and a beautiful match tonight :)

      I call BS on this one! :D

      Top post mate, but trust me there's just as much tension on our side without having VVD and Gomez, TAA having not played 90 minutes in a while and probably going with an untried midfield trio of Hendo/Milner, Naby and Gini.
