Roberto Firmino, the Brazilian forward playing for Liverpool had been in doubt for the last 16 first leg of Champions League due to a virus. However, he has been cleared for play.
Liverpool has been given a boost before the Champions League match against Bayern Munich as Roberto Firmino has been given a green card to play for the Klopp’s squad. This news is going to come as a fillip for the manager as he plans to use Fabinho, the midfielder as the auxiliary center-back for their tie of last-16 first leg at Anfield.
Dejan Lovren might not feature as he sat out of the training session yesterday. The Croatian hasn’t yet recovered from the injury in the hamstring that he had suffered last month.
It is expected that Firmino will start with a three-man attack with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. This means that Brazilian is going to maintain the record he has of the feature in every game of Liverpool under Klopp in the European games.
In the meantime, Bayern is most likely to make a late decision regarding Kingsley Coman. He had suffered the knock when they played against Augsburg in the Bundesliga game.
Jerome Boateng, the center-back isn’t going to be available and had been absent from the traveling party that headed to Liverpool because of the illness. Liverpool is presently on the run of 5 games without losing in all competitions. The last game was against the Wolves in the FA Cup.
