“A horrible draw… for Bayern” – Liverpool fans react to Champions League last-16 draw

Liverpool will play Bayern Munich in the Champions League last 16 and supporters have been giving their thoughts on an exciting draw.

The Reds learned their fate in Nyon on Monday, with Jurgen Klopp‘s former rivals Bayern standing between his team and a place in the quarter-finals.

They will play the first leg at Anfield on February 19, with the second leg at the Allianz Arena on March 13.

Spirits are high at Anfield at the moment, particularly after Sunday’s 3-1 win over Man United, and Liverpool will feel they can beat anyone on current form.

Bayern have great pedigree in the European Cup, however, winning it five times, including victory over Klopp’s Borussia Dortmund team in the 2013 final at Wembley.

Meanwhile, United will face Paris Saint-Germain, Man City have been pitted against Schalke and Tottenham have a tough battle with Dortmund on their hands.

Here’s how fans reacted to the draw on social media and our forums.


The general mood was bullish, to say the least…

“Bring them on, we fear nobody!”
