Jurgen Klopp insists Liverpool are still firmly in contention for a place in the Champions League football quarter-finals despite their dour 0-0 draw against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night.
Klopp’s side were frustrated by a disciplined Bayern display in the last-16 first leg at Anfield.
The usually free-scoring Reds now face a daunting task in the second leg at the Allianz Arena on March 13.
Bundesliga champions Bayern have lost only two of their last 26 home Champions League games, winning 22 of those.
But Liverpool boss Klopp is convinced his side have nothing to fear in Germany.
“The positive is of course the result is ok, the best draw we can get. Yes we can play better, we should play better,” Klopp said.
“The tie is not over. We said that. We had to create the basis tonight that we can use in the second leg.
“It was a big fight. We had the bigger chances. It’s not a dream result but it is a good one. We can work with that.”
Liverpool’s progress to last season’s Champions League final was marked by a series of swaggering displays at Anfield.
