Liverpool’s chance of winning against Bayern Munich next week has been enhanced by the injury picked up by Kingsley Coman.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will take on Bayern at Anfield in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie next Tuesday evening.

 

Although the Reds are in good form and have home advantage for the match, Bayern have a strong team and vast experience of winning in Europe.

The German powerhouse prepared for the match against Liverpool with a 3-2 victory over Augsburg away from home in the Bundesliga on Friday evening.

Coman scored twice for Niko Kovac’s side, but the 22-year-old winger also suffered a major injury which could keep him out of the match against Liverpool.
