Liverpool wins in Munich and qualifies for the quarterfinalsMarch 13, 2019
Bayern is the next big European who says goodbye to the Champions League after falling in the Allianz against a Liverpool that put to the test all its effectiveness in attack and endorsed a hard defeat (3-1) to the German champion. It is the first time since 2011 (then it fell against Inter) that the German transatlantic bids farewell to the continental competition in the second round, an elimination that will leave sequels in a team accustomed to reach the semifinals every year, but living a phase of renewal after the era of Schweinsteiger, Lahm and company. You will have to have patience.
The meeting at the Munich Coliseum began as expected. Aware that something could mean eliminatory half, Germans and English were about half an hour playing with the brake hand thrown until Mané punished the first error of the premises. Van Dijk sent a ball to the edge of the area, Rafinha and Neuer were not understood and the segenalés took the opportunity to silence the Allianz with a minced of authentic killer.
It was more than an hour and Bayern had to score two to qualify. Stranger things had happened in the Allianz, who watched as theirs woke up and went from fear to rage in moments. They locked Klopp's in their field and got the reward in a center from Gnabry that Matip cleared towards the bottom of his own goal. Six minutes later, the whistle of the referee eased a Liverpool who was going badly wrong before the Bavarian siege.
Klopp knew what had to be done. To maintain the firmness behind and to try to hook a counter that knocked out a Bayern that followed in search of that much that put them in quarters. Salah was the first to test Neuer after a book backlash, on the other side Lewandowski was about to hook a center in the goalmouth, but it was finally Liverpool who tested his hit one more time.
Milner threw a corner and a plane named van Dijk crossed the Munich area and passed over Javi Martinez and Hummels to nail a header in the Bavarian heart that this time he knew he was living his final minutes in Champions. Before the desperation of Bayern up, Mané closed the pass of his own with a header that emptied the Allianz in just minutes.
