HT: So will Liverpool hold onto their lead or will Bayern Munich come back in this match? Join us again for the second-half.
HT: Liverpool know that a two-goal margin may not be enough to defeat Bayern and they will be eager to add to their tally. They have created a number of good chances and they will need to be more clinical as they won’t want to rue their missed opportunities, given Bayern’s quality. Bayern haven’t really got going despite the large amount of possession they have had. Lewandowski has been deprived of service and hasn’t been involved thus far. They do have quality players on the bench should their performance fail to improve, but they cannot afford to concede another as it could be game over.
HT: Liverpool created some good chances and opened the scoring with their first real attack with Mané firing home after Firmino won possession on the half-way-line before Salah was denied by Ulreich. Moreno was then denied by Ulreich, who did well to palm the Spaniard’s freekick away before the Spaniard’s effort was palmed away by Ulreich into the path of Salah, who headed home the follow-up.
HT: Bayern Munich dominated the possession but didn’t really create many chances and were restricted to strikes from-range, which flew off-target.
HT: So Liverpool lead comfortably at the break.
