Jurgen Klopp failed to get one over on former foe Bayern Munich as Liverpool were held to a 0-0 draw in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League tie at Anfield.
Liverpool, whose makeshift defence looked shaky early on, spurned a host of chances in the first half to break the deadlock, with Sadio Mane the biggest culprit, unable to find the target from two efforts in quick succession.
After the break, Liverpool retreated into their half much more. Bayern created openings of their own, with former Arsenal player Serge Gnabry firing their best effort over just before the hour mark.
The match, in truth, petered out, with Liverpool perhaps with one eye on the Super Sunday clash with Manchester United, live on Sky Sports. However, Liverpool held on to that vital clean sheet ahead of the return leg in Munich in three weeks’ time, as Klopp failed to gain some form of revenge for his Borussia Dortmund side’s 2013 Champions League final defeat at the hands of Bayern.
