Barcelona set a new all-time record in the Champions League last night

Head coach Juergen Klopp of Liverpool looks on during the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 Second Leg match between FC Bayern Muenchen and Liverpool at Allianz Arena

Head coach Juergen Klopp of Liverpool looks on during the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 Second Leg match between FC Bayern Muenchen and Liverpool at Allianz Arena

Virgil van Dijk made it 2-1 21 minutes from time and Mane wrapped things up late on, giving Liverpool a deserved away win at the Allianz Arena.

Van Dijk will be expected to retain his spot in the starting XI against the Cottagers and Johnson believes he has mastered the art of defending.

"There's going to be many times in the Champions League you'll come up against world-class strikers, and he's the player you need to put them to sleep".

After the 3-1 win which gave the Reds the qualification for the quarter finals, Fabinho has spoken to the Brazilian press about the match, claiming the Anfield side were very confident they would leave Germany with the qualification. The club is reportedly interested in 23-year-old Lille forward Nicolas Pepe, who has 17 goals in the French league this season, while Chelsea's Callum Hudson-Odoi and Atletico Madrid's Lucas Hernandez remain targets.

And Johnson says he would've loved to play with van Dijk during his career. "We were playing at home but that's not our game and I think that's why Liverpool beat us". Whilst Liverpool failed to keep a clean sheet, he nullified Bundesliga's top scorer Robert Lewandowski. It doesn't bring back better results from the time when we lost.

His quality shined even more in contrast to Bayern's defensive pairing of Mats Hummels and Niklas Sule. "He's so good on the ball, so calm, big and strong - there's not really a weakness in his game at the moment".

"Well, hopefully", replied Van Dijk.

Secondly there is no joy in the other English teams being there. "He is a massive threat". There are obviously a lot of good teams left, but we've got good feelings, obviously, from a year ago and those experiences. "He is still young enough to get better". The manager said victory at one of European football's powerhouses, following on from last season's appearance in the Champions League final, confirmed Liverpool's place among the elite in the game.

However they are now being pushed all the way by Dortmund this season, and their elimination from the Champions League has piled further pressure on manager Niko Kovac.
