Liverpool visit Bayern Munich on Wednesday eager to book their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

The two sides battled to a goalless draw in the first leg, leaving Bayern as favourites to make it through to the last eight.

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keita missed Tuesday morning’s training session and has remained on Merseyside due to a minor injury. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also misses the game.

Bayern are without suspended duo Thomas Muller and Joshua Kimmich, while Arjen Robben and Corentin Tolisso remain on the sidelines.

The German side failed to have a single shot on target in the first meeting, but they can be expected to pile on the pressure this evening.

Bayern have failed to score once in their last 26 home games in this competition, while the Reds have lost their last four away matches.

The Reds will be hoping for improved performances from Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, with the trio finding the back of the net just once from their last 33 shots in the Champions League.
