Liverpool welcome Bayern to Anfield in the first leg of the tie next week and will be hoping to continue their good form after a positive result against Bournemouth in the Premier League.

The victory saw the Reds regain top spot in the Premier League momentarily before Manchester City put six goals past Chelsea on Sunday afternoon and moved above Liverpool.

The two sides are now level on points at the top, but Liverpool do boast a game in hand.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will be aiming to make use of their home advantage in the first leg before the return tie in March.

Coman will be fit for Liverpool clash.
Liverpool were temporarily given a boost Friday night with the news that star winger Kingsley Coman had limped off the field during Bayern Munich’s 3-2 victory against Augsburg, but it has emerged Saturday morning that the Frenchman will be ready for the first leg on Tuesday evening. Head coach Niko Kovac’s comments in the immediate aftermath of the result suggested he would be without the 22-year-old Parisian, who bagged a brace in the prime-time Bundesliga fixture. However, Bayern’s medical staff have determined that the ailment is not as severe as first thought.
