Liverpool vs Bayern Munich
Liverpool hosted Bayern Munich on Tuesday in the first leg of their round of 16 clash.
Liverpool will travel to Bayern for the second leg on the 13th of March.
Heading into the Bayern game Liverpool had lost just once in the Premier League this season.
However, Liverpool were without several big players for Tuesday’s game including Virgil van Dijk who was suspended.
As for Bayern, they are 2nd in the Bundesliga and now just three points behind Borussia Dortmund.
Bayern were also without several big players including Jerome Boateng.
Jordan Henderson impresses for Liverpool
The first half finished 0-0 with Liverpool having the better of the chances.
Liverpool’s best chance fell to Sadio Mane and the winger really should have done better.
Sadio Mane finds himself six yards out, onside, but fluffs his shot wide of the goal.

Despite it remaining 0-0, one Liverpool player put on a stand out performance for much of the evening.
Jordan Henderson was arguably one of Liverpool’s best players vs Munich.
The Englishman played a superb ball to Mohamed Salah who was unable to convert.

Henderson also did a fantastic job defensively and his passing was top quality.
As a result, Henderson is being lavished with praise on social media.
I can’t believe that in a Champions League game between Liverpool and Bayern Munich, Jordan Henderson is playing like the best player on the pitch.
Lord bless us and save us.

Honestly, if any of our summer signings had just put in the half Jordan Henderson did, everyone would be losing their shit. He’s always quality at home in Europe.
