KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Anfield - Liverpool were forced to settle for a 0-0 draw against Bayern Munich in the Champions League last-16 first leg on Tuesday.

For those of us old enough to remember 1981, we've been here before and I'm fully expecting Sammy Lee to sit himself next to Paul Breitner, up in the stands of the Allianz, for the second leg and not let him out of his sight all night. Their players worked hard, they closed us down fast and showed maybe a little too much respect.

The last three Anfield encounters between Liverpool and Bayern have ended goalless. Bolstered by that record, Niko Kovač's men will be confident of progress in front of their own fans, even against a Liverpool side that scored nine goals on their knockout travels last term.

"The manager set the plan and we put it into reality. I hope we can play better at home".

A 0-0 draw isn't a awful result by any means - not conceding an away goal is, of course, a huge positive - but Klopp will have gone into the game hoping for a victory.

Liverpool wasted a number of good opportunities in front of goal on Tuesday night to leave the tie evenly poised at the halfway stage.

After the game Wijnaldum was frustrated that Liverpool couldn't take their chances. Of course it would have better had we won the game, but a 0-0 draw is the best draw you can get. We had to play compact for the 90 minutes. We know if we concede, we have to win.

"It is half-full, half-empty", Kovac said. "At this level, very small differences can decide everything so we will wait and see".

"I'm not over the moon but I'm completely okay with the game", he told BT Sport after the match.

Liverpool's strength under Klopp in European competitions has always been the home games - making their way to the finals past year with devastating home performances against the likes of City and Roma. "I thought he shakes the whole [of] Bayern".

Local young fans from four high schools - North Liverpool Academy, Alsop High School, Notre Dame Catholic College and The Academy of St Francis of Assisi - will be invited to attend the screening as part of the club's Red Neighbours programme.

"And then he apologised and I said no problem. That's how it was".

He added: "That was amusing". "We were on English soil. In Germany it's normal when a game ends that you shake hands with your players and in England it is that first the coaches shake hands".
