      Not a good game from us, but Bayern was worse and a good horse just jumps as high as it must. Still it is time that Ox comes back, or Lallana or Keita get something done, we need a more explosive midfield if we should play Barca, Juve or City.

      Also.. thought this was a hilariously bitter report of Mane's brilliant goal from the BBC.

      Quote
      Van Dijk launched a long pass intended for Mane, whose instant control dumfounded both the tracking Rafinha and Neuer, who miscalculated his foray forward. Mane, with his back to the Germany keeper, turned and fired into the empty net.

      It was a brilliant finish, but he benefited from Neuer's terrible judgement.

      Well, it was brilliant play from Mane but I do think that if Neuer stays on his line nothing happens there.

      a completely understated description of the play..

      But if you really think that was an accurate description, then fair enough.

      Personally, I prefer something like this from Owen

      Brilliant. It's absolutely brilliant,'

      He added: 'Everything to do with this goal was... [brilliant] I know Van Dijk played a nice ball but it was a pretty simple ball but everything that was good about this goal was Mane. He pulls really wide to give himself as much space as possible to run in to.

      'Yes, the goalkeeper having a bit of a howler or a rush of blood, but Mane was aware to that and he knew to take the ball to one side of him and dink it over.

      And let me tell you when the ball is coming over your shoulder like that, for you to just see and pick up the height of the ball and not only that, but to take a touch is perfect.

      It's a goal of the highest quality and even that (Mane's turn) the awareness of what's around and then a little coolness after all that to dink it over the line. It's a finish of the highest quality.

      yes turning two defenders after taking the ball over his shoulder perfectly on his foot then turning the Goalkeeper and then chipping the two defenders to score...yes it was a simple goal

      There were a few times, especially after that dire 2014-2015 season (possibly the worst season I've had to endure) where I questioned whether we'd return to that elite level of competitiveness. It felt like a given, something I'd take for granted under much of Rafa's tenure but after he left the ownership, players and manager just didn't seem to be working whatever the combination. And then Jürgen comes in and suddenly the ownership looks good and the players look fantastic. The much maligned transfer committee suddenly becomes a department of scouting geniuses with Michael Edwards suddenly a man in demand. The reality is Edwards and his scouts owe everything to Jürgen and the likes of Edwards would not be at the club today if it weren't for him.

      And the thing is, he didn't have to choose to manage us. He could have had the choice of any club on the continent - he's that good. But that he chose us make me even more grateful for his presence in the dugout. The turnaround of this club in the three and a half years he's been here has just been phenomenal and I promised myself that I would never take European nights like this for granted again.

      Watching the Reds since the sixties that dire season .... fielding a weakened side against Real Madrid FFS... was the low point for me.

      Everything you say is true.

      Onwards Onwards Ever Upwards.

      Definitely reminded me of the type of finish that Owen could do with his eyes closed.

      Don't let anyone take anything away from that performance. That's still a great Bayern Munich side that scored 11 goals in the two games prior to playing us. How many teams go to the Allianz Arena and limit them to just one miserable shot on target and some shots from distance? Bayern are a quality side, we made them look bang average tonight.

      That first half performance was probably exactly how Klopp and the team wanted it to go. Absorb pressure, let Bayern have the ball and limit the space in the middle. While not brilliant on the ball, all of Fabinho, Milner, and Wijnaldum, bar the 5 minutes of madness at the end of the second half, we're exceptional in terms of work rate, closing down, limiting space, ... Bayern did that very well too which made it a very cagey first half. It wasn't pretty by any means, but boy was it effective. Had it not been for Robertson switching off for a split second, we go into the second half 0-1 up.

      The game, as expected, opened up in the second half and we were amazing. Credit to all the lads out there, not going to pick on any negatives after a night like this. Bayern were never really in it. We look so solid, full of confidence in our own ability and determined to go all the way.

      Matip was a giant at the back. Van Dijk and him had Lewandowski in their pocket all night. Mane of course brilliant again. What a top player.

      Superb analysis. You should take that German Panzer w**ker under your wing and teach him a few things about how to watch and review a football match. With any luck he might just start to learn the basics of this sport.

      Also it must be said, for a club that has spent most of the last few years lauding it over the rest of Germany and proclaiming their greatness, the amount of times Bayern's players fell to the floor with the slightest touch with eyes pining up at the referee like a desperate puppy was a pretty pathetic display of supposed 'dominance'. Lewandowski especially has much to answer for. But before he can he'll have to find his way out of Van Dijk's pocket.

      Good, honest football won in the end.

      I thought this was one of our best performances of the season. Yes, not everything went right, especially in the first half but we're away to one of the best sides in Europe so it's to be expected. What no one expected was that we'd limit them to one shot on goal (I believe it was) all game. It was a thoroughly mature performance, attacking in the right moments, defending in others, never allowing ourselves to be caught doing too much of either. The press was excellent, the defending spot on, for the most part - yes, Robbo needs to do a lot, lot better for that goal, and yes he didn't need to put that tackle in at the end - as was our counter attack which was more fluid than it has been for some time when playing away from home.

      Mane has now scored both goals of the season. Just give him the award because no one's going to do better. He really is becoming a world class player at the right time for us. Salah was excellent and did everything right but score a goal (you can debate whether he should have passed to Mane on that chance, whether he should have gone down or was right to shoot himself), but for MOTM I voted the big man, the world's best centre back, Virgil 'Big Virge' Van Dijk. He was imperious again, showing not only his class but his leadership abilities.

      I just hope we can avoid a domestic tie, and get a relatively easy run in the next round. That said, this Liverpool team has proven over the last two years that it can beat anyone on their night so the draw should hold no fear for us.

      Could only watch the match on my mobile but got tv signal back now so currently watching the Barca game quickly followed by a full re-run of our match which I'm not going to miss a minute of!
      Oh the joys of watching a good win when you know the result without the stress!!
