Mourinho sees Premier League pairings as ideal Champions League quarter-final line-up

Mourinho sees Premier League pairings as ideal Champions League quarter-final line-up

"I've looked at him a lot this season and the easier chances, sometimes he snatches at them and misses them. I didn't have help and I couldn't do something", Bayern forward Robert Lewandowski told Norwegian broadcaster Viasport.

Bayern was playing without the injured Arjen Robben and the suspended pair of Thomas Mueller and Joshua Kimmich.

While the direct comparison has prompted questions on German football's global standing following also their shock first round World Cup exit a year ago, Bayern coach Niko Kovac will only occupy himself with how his team can win the domestic silverware on offer.

Six years after his Borussia Dortmund side was beaten in the Champions League final by Bayern at Wembley, Klopp returned to exact some kind of revenge.

Kingsley Coman came on as a substitute midway through the second half and caused some trouble for Liverpool's defense.

Since then they have replaced goalkeeper Loris Karius with one of the world's best, Alisson.

But Mane has had a fine campaign himself, scoring 16 league goals.

Although that price places him as the 11th most expensive player in football history, his contributions, leadership, and potential will likely see Virgil van Dijk become a Liverpool legend and a club captain in the near future as well.

However, his team believe that the power with which he made the executive order is given to him by the constitution of the state . California has not executed a prisoner since 2006 because of a series of legal challenges to its lethal injection method.

Three years ago, Bayern recovered from a two-goal deficit at halftime to beat Juventus 4-2 at the same stage of the competition.

Mane has 10 goals in as many games in all competitions - including three doubles - and is enjoying his best goalscoring return in his five seasons in English football.

"The first thing you have to do is make sure everybody respects the opponent the right way -- and we will do that 100 per cent". We all expect the Spaniards to be in the mix this time next year though.

Bayern started the weekend top of the Bundesliga on goal difference from second-placed Dortmund, who are at Hertha Berlin on Saturday night.

However, a caveat to the manager's claims must be added, as telling reporters of his plans to sign a high-profile player in the summer would both undermine the club's business and the progress of the squad this season.

In the past two windows, Kovac acquired Leon Goretzka on a free transfer from Schalke and Canadian winger Alphonso Davies, 18, from the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Wijnaldum is the most senior, established player yet to be rewarded with a new contract after the likes of Salah, Mane, Roberto Firmino, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson all got new deals in the last 12 months.
