Reds defender hoping for big Bayern performance
Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson says Liverpool need to do their utmost to stop Bayern Munich in their Champions League tie.
The Reds drew 0-0 with Bayern two weeks ago in a cagey first leg of few chances and little quality at Anfield.
Liverpool have had three goalless draws in their previous six games but have netted 12 in the others to spark doubts over whether they have the consistency to win trophies this season.
Sunday's 4-2 win over Burnley was arguably the perfect preparation for their trip to Bavaria to face the Bundesliga champions.
However, having remained unbeaten in their last nine on the road, Robertson says Liverpool must use whatever momentum they have as they look to get the better of Bayern.
“Last season we were good away from home in the Champions League, we caused teams problems and that’s what we need to do again,” Robertson said.
“It will probably be a different game, they’ll need to come out a bit more, their fans will demand they try to create.
“It’s all about trying to keep them out first and foremost and then hopefully we can take the chances we get and do enough to get through.”
