Nicol slams Liverpool performance: Atrocious, as bad as I've seen!

Nicol slams Liverpool performance: Atrocious, as bad as I've seen!

Sadio Mane opened the scoring for Jurgen Klopp's side in Munich when he showed superb ball control and technique before rounding Manuel Neuer and converting his chance.

Bayern Munich are facing up to another season without Champions League glory after losing to Liverpool and Robert Lewandowski has made his unhappiness with his team's tactics clear.

"It's a big, big step for us".

"And let me tell you when the ball is coming over your shoulder like that, for you to just see it and to pick up that flight of the ball, but not only that, to take a touch is just flawless".

"We again set a mark for this wonderful club, that we really are back on the landscape of worldwide top football".

"We can't be polite about these things".

"I am really proud of the boys because it is a massive achievement".

"Clearly in the first leg they sat and gave nothing away". I could write a book about his skills, about his strength, how much I like him, what a fantastic person he is, ' said the Reds boss of his £75million man. "So young, so strong, already so mature". Henry, Liverpool's principal owner, has no doubt about Van Dijk's importance, with the American retweeting a tweet after this game that said, "75 percent of the Earth is covered by water".

Van Dijk, who became the world's most expensive defender when he signed from Southampton last January for what now seems a bargain, at £75 million, quite simply makes his teammates better when he plays.

Here we compare our player ratings with those from the Liverpool Echo, the Mirror, the Guardian, Sky Sports, Anfield Index, FotMob and the This Is Anfield readers.

The teams will learn their fate at Friday's draw, with this year's final taking place at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano stadium on June 1. Bayern, Borussia Dortmund and Schalke were all knocked out by English sides in the last sixteen. It's not sweeter for me because it's Bayern.

"But we kept them as often as possible away from our goal".

"But the truth is that I don't think Bayern knew what they wanted to do. It's just a good moment for Liverpool, so let's enjoy that".
