Liverpool produced a strong performance in Germany to beat Bayern Munich 3-1 and progress to the Champions League last eight—with a great draw in store.
The Reds were confident and never really in danger of being beaten, despite being far from their best at the Allianz Arena.
Bayern failed to really mount any consistent threat on Alisson Becker’s goal and, at the other end, Sadio Mane netted a superb brace either side of Virgil van Dijk‘s towering header.
Joel Matip‘s first-half own goal, which made it 1-1, was eventually of very little consequence.
The Reds will be one of four Premier League teams in the last eight and attention now turns to who Jurgen Klopp‘s side will face next and their potential route to the final.
When and where?
The draw for the quarter-finals takes place on Friday, March 15—and directly afterward, the draws for the semi-finals and the home/away teams for the final will also be decided.
It will take place at 11.00am in Nyon.
Is it on TV?
UEFA will stream the draw on their official website, while UK viewers can also watch on BT Sport.
Who can Liverpool draw?
It’s a completely open draw from this stage, so any of the other seven sides are possibilities.
- Manchester United
- FC Porto
- Manchester City
When will the fixtures take place?
The first leg will be played on either 9 or 10 April, with the second leg on 16 or 17 April.
Andy Robertson‘s late yellow card was unnecessary and frustrating—he’ll now miss the first leg of the quarters.
Those yellows would have been wiped out after the last 16, so it’s doubly irksome.
Potential dates after the quarters?
Semi-finals, first leg: 30 April/1 May
Semi-finals, second leg: 7/8 May
Final: 1 June (Estadio Metropolitano, Madrid)
