Jordan Henderson setback hits Liverpool in Munich

Liverpool sees off Bayern Munich as Messi inspires Barcelona

"To lose the captain that early was hard but we dealt with it well".

"But (we can use) the thoughts of the run we had, the teams that we beat and the confidence that we gained".

Manchester City, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur will all be on Friday's quarterfinal draw.

"A ideal Dexit" commented broadcaster RTL.

"Someone told me what was said by Beckenbauer", he said ahead of Liverpool's Premier League match against Fulham on Sunday. "They have won the Premier league, they have won the FA Cup, won the League Cup but they haven't quite got the Champions League trophy".

Liverpool FC will face Portuguese giants FC Porto in the Champions League quarter-finals after their 3-1 aggregate win over Bayern Munich.

But Klopp isn't looking that far ahead and has warned his players that Porto will be desperate to avenge last year's thrashing. As teams continue to pass out from the back rather than boot it upfield, defenders have overtaken the passing charts, claiming seven of the top-10 spots.

Having missed the goalless first leg at Anfield three weeks ago through suspension, Virgil van Dijk's long pass led to Mane's excellent first-half goal.

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has been ruled out of the trip to west London due to a minor ankle injury that he picked up against Bayern so Fabinho is expected to be recalled to the side.

"The fact is: German football is second rate internationally, 2020 must be better", the tabloid said. Still, the sting of failing to progress to the Champions League quarterfinals for the first time in eight years will be felt for some time. It's not by accident that three German clubs are eliminated by three English clubs.

"The first goal that Sadio scored in Munich, probably if you have not scored for five or six games, then you will not score that goal". Joe Gomez played the first part of the season and was incredible, Dejan played unbelievably good football and Joel as well.

Dortmund's director of sport Michael Zorc feels English clubs have stolen a march. After his first start for them in Matchweek 24 past year, van Dijk helped Liverpool concede less than a goal per game and, by the end of the season, helped the club allow less than 30 goals in a domestic campaign for just the third time in a decade. "Checks were positive but we have to see if it stays positive", Klopp added.

No doubt, the argument will again crop up that Bayern's domination of the Bundesliga does not prepare them for high-pressure Champions League games.
