Pundit Reveals Secret Why Liverpool Can Beat European Giants

According to former Scottish footballer Don Hutchinson, Liverpool can exploit Bayern Munich’s lack of pace in their defense during the Champions League Round of 16 encounters.

Liverpool currently sits at the top of the Premier League table and they’re star forwards are slowly starting to find their rhythm after a relatively slow start. Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Xherdan Shaqiri are all electric when on the football pitch and have torn apart a few defenses already.




The Reds also qualified for the Round of 16 in the Champions League where they will now face Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in February. Jurgen Klopp will return to Germany to face an old enemy that he conquered during his time with Borussia Dortmund when he won two German titles to become a thorn in Bayern’s aspirations.

And former Liverpool midfielder Don Hutchinson has revealed the secret reason for Liverpool to beat Bayern Munich because of the Premier League side’s attacking trio, who can outpace Bayern’s aging defense.

In a conversation with Optus Sport, the 47-year-old Hutchinson was asked whether Liverpool received a good draw against Bayern and he replied, “Very good.  I commentated on Bayern-Ajax last week and Bayern has got no pace in their back four.  Sule is a good defender, a bit like Sokratis, where he’s old school, heads it and boots it.  Mats Hummels, great on the ball but slow as well. Jerome Boateng’s best days are behind him.  I fancy Liverpool to beat Bayern over two legs.”

Liverpool will host Bayern on February 19th at Anfield but will miss Dutch defender Virgil Van Dijk due to suspension before making the trip to the Allianz Arena in Bavaria on March 13th for the return leg.

Author’s Take-

I think that Liverpool can cause Bayern some serious issues in the backline because Mane, Salah, Firmino, and Shaqiri are opportunists and have plenty of speed in their lockers. Bayern will find it difficult to contain Klopp’s attacking unit as they are also struggling in the Bundesliga six points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund.
