UCL: Liverpool Come Good in Munich Progress To Quarter Finals
Sadio Mane’s brace inspired Liverpool to a convincing 3-1 win at Bayern Munich and a place in the Champions League quarter-finals.
The Senegal forward’s excellent 26th-minute opener gave Jurgen Klopp’s side a priceless away goal but, in a similar vein to the goalless first leg at Anfield, the action was fitful and error-strewn for the most part.
Bayern were level at the break thanks to Joel Matip’s own goal but Niko Kovac’s side were never able to mount a sustained victory push.
A typically dominant Virgil van Dijk powered in to leave a forlorn Bayern with a mountain to climb and Mane administered the knockout blow six minutes from time.
