Lovren, Shaqiri, Wijnaldum may play against Bayern

Shaqiri joined the Reds from Stoke in the summer

Liverpool launched the first attack after 12 minutes when Mohamed Salah met a cross from Roberto Firmino but Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer saved easily. "We came up against a very experienced team, a team that has been there and done it for six or seven years now", he said.

Liverpool can ill afford to become distracted by the prospect of a hard second leg at Allianz Arena in three weeks, with four key domestic games upcoming.

"We didn't score but we didn't let one in".

Top-scorer in the Champions League this season with eight goals, Bayern star Lewandowski was looking to net for a fifth consecutive game in the competition. We are at home now, we will play in front of 75,000.

Defeat to title rivals Manchester City followed by draws against Leicester and West Ham has seen the Reds' lead in the league cut from 10 points to nothing, albeit with a game in hand.

"These things happen, especially in big games, so it's about trying to have a wee bit of composure and that's probably what we lacked in the first half".

But crucially they managed to subdue Liverpool's usually lethal forward line, keeping the Bundesliga in with a chance of having at least one team in the quarter-finals.

German Klopp told BT Sport: "It was a clean sheet without the big man (Van Dijk)".

Liverpool named Joel Matip and Fabinho in a makeshift central defence, with Virgil van Dijk suspended and Dejan Lovren injured.

We had to create the basis tonight that we can use in the second leg. "We can go there and hurt them".

"That was a very hard game", Lewandowski said.

"They knew how to frustrate us and how to frustrate the fans and they did it well but we had chances and if we had taken them on another day the result would be different". 'They identified the strengths of the Liverpool team, pace, exploiting space, they never gave them that.

"There will be a lot of moments where we have to defend and we worked on that, we tried to work on that because we respect the quality of Bayern Munich a lot - speed, technique, experience, it's all there what you need to be successful".

Do you have a life-changing story you would like us to publish? It is not a game we will remember in 30 years.

In midfield, there were lingering concerns over the availability of Georginio Wijnaldum, who had braved illness to produce a match winning performance against Bournemouth.
