“Not at their best” but “decent result” – Liverpool fans react to 0-0 draw with Bayern Munich

Liverpool and Bayern Munich played out an intriguing 0-0 draw in the Champions League on Tuesday, with fans providing mixed thoughts after the final whistle.

Liverpool 0-0 Bayern Munich

Champions League, Anfield
February 19, 2019

The Reds hosted the Bundesliga giants at Anfield in what proved to be a more cagey, tactical affair than some predicted.

Great chances were few and far between for both sides, although Alisson prevented a Joel Matip own goal in the first half and Sadio Mane missed a gilt-edged opportunity.

It leaves the tie very finely poised ahead of the return leg in Munich next month, with Liverpool’s clean sheet without Virgil van Dijk the major positive.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result on social media and our forums.


Keita and Henderson impressed, especially in the first half…

“The best game Henderson has played since his arrival”

Colm Roche on Facebook.

“I’m liking Keita more and more”

PeachesEnRegalia on the forums.


Fabinho also excelled in a rare centre-back role…

“Big shout out to Matip and Fabinho. They did well to shut down Lewandowski.”

Mihir Ghate on Facebook.

Fabinho was pretty good playing out of position”

Klopp’s substitutions didn’t go down well, however…


Many were positive about a 0-0 draw, especially without Van Dijk playing…

“Am I missing something here? Advantage Bayern Munich?”

Dave Wood on Facebook.

“No away goal for BM, but no goal for us at home to take an advantage. All to play for in 3 weeks time. Should be a good game.”

Others looked ahead to a crucial clash with Man United on Sunday…

“Not a bad result at all. Back firing for Sunday”
