Liverpool vs Bayern Munich, Champions League last-16, first leg

Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac is managing in the Champions League for the first time this season.

The former Croatia and Eintracht Frankfurt manager took charge of Bayern last summer.

And he thinks his side have got the toughest last-16 draw.

“We are playing tomorrow against an opponent where it is the most difficult draw.

“If you look at what Liverpool did in the Champions League last season, and what they are doing in the Premier League this season, then you have to say it is the most difficult draw that there is.

“The atmosphere will definitely be good, but I’m sure my players have gone through a lot of big games with great atmospheres, so that’s not an argument that we shouldn’t be able to compete.”
