Champions League: Sadio Mané blows Liverpool's big chance against Bayern Munich

Roberto Firmino was the pick of the three at Anfield while Sadio Mane missed chances and Mo Salah ran down blind alleys.

Liverpool will now be seeking to up their game ahead of the second leg, as Bayern will be having an edge over the Premier League side as hosts.

Klopp said: "If Bayern had been full of confidence we might have had more space".

Despite Bayern's upward curve, a curve that could yet lead "the worst Bayern in years" to the treble, that was a very complimentary approach to the thorny issue of facing Klopp's Liverpool. "I make Liverpool slight favourites and would fancy them to go through".

Liverpool's strength under Klopp in European competitions has always been the home games - making their way to the finals a year ago with devastating home performances against the likes of City and Roma.
