Liverpool, the Premier League leaders are going to meet Bayern Munich in the last sixteen of Champions League. The first game is to be held at Anfield.
The inside knowledge that Jurgen Klopp has about Bundesliga will prove to be beneficial as Liverpool faces Bayern Munich in the Champions League as per Ian Rush, the former striker from Reds.
Klopp had become a part of Liverpool in the year 2015 after completing an incredible 7-year spell at Borussia Dortmund. While he was a coach here, he guided them to win 2 league titles and also a DFB-Pokal triumph.
Bayern Munich has been the winner of 6 successive Bundesliga title. However, they have been struggling this season in comparison to the other seasons. They are nine points behind Dortmund even after 15 games.
When Rush was asked if having some German in the dugout of Liverpool for the sixteen ties is going to be beneficial, he said that it will serve as an advantage. He states, Jurgen has an idea about the German teams and he will do his homework. According to him, Bayern has Lewandowski, the top scorer of the competition which makes them the dangerous team.
He goes onto say that it does not really matter who you actually get during this stage. They are home for the first leg and thus, they need to take advantage of that. Liverpool is in the final season after losing out to Real Madrid and Rush hopes to repeat in 2019.
