He might be playing his way into Klopp's first team here. If radio doesn't start itself, please try another browser. It's one of the best teams in the world, whatever lineup Carlo will choose is a real challenge but that's what we need now. Moreno takes the kick and bends the ball over the wall and towards the top corner, Karius dives and parries the shot but it falls into the middle of the box. Adam Lallana was in front of the goalkeeper while the ball went in the net and thus, it was offside. They also play Numburg, Ajax and Hannover in early december. Mané attempts a bicycle kick, but fires wide.
He gets to the box and decelerates, it looks like the chance has gone. Moreno almost added a second from a free-kick and crossed for Mohamed Salah, who was denied by Ulreich. A free-kick 25 yards out - this has Coutinho written all over it. Renato Sanches is getting ready to replace Thiago, who is receiving treatment on the sidelines after going to the bench holding the left of his lower torso, which could mean a groin injury. He's a different kind of player, and Ancelotti knows his soccerball, but so far. He takes an age to get up. Bayern: Whereas Liverpool started off hot and cooled down, it's been the opposite for Bayern.
Ribery has just been put on the floor by Alexander-Arnold. And Paul Ince is no longer his friend. By my substandard counting he's given the ball away in dangerous situations twice now might be three times and the latest gives Liverpool a three on one counter-attack. Firmino claims it and finds Keita; Keita dodges a tackle and passes on to Mané — and Mané simply misses! Liverpool insist they won't sell their star man, but that hasn't quelled the rumours. Rafinha starts warming up, but Kimmich plays on. Gnabry shots for the far corner, but Alisson touches it out of bounds. Gnabry delivers a great cross to him, but Matip blasts it over the net for a corner.
Keita attempts a bicycle kick in the end, but the ball flies outside. Team News: Bayern Munich are sweating over the fitness of summer arrival Arturo Vidal who will have to pass late fitness test but Mario Gotze and Bernat are fit to start just incase Vidal fails to make it to the starting lineup. Tolisso, Bayern's big money buy as well as Coman hasn't done much to suggest he's going to replace Alonso any time soon. Divock Origi also replaces Firmino. Both clubs are European footballing royalty, having won the competition five times apiece. Javi Martinez, Jerome Boateng, Philip Lahm and Alaba to play in back four.
He and Lewandowski could create a 2v1, but the angle is tight. It fortunately flies past it and Salah accidentally sends it out of play. Coutinho tries to go past Martinez but the giant Spaniard blocks his path and Bayern survive. He still manages to pick Lewandowski out of a crowd of red shirts, but Fabinho cleanly tackles the Pole in front of the goal. Unlike fixtures in Hong Kong and Berlin, Klopp was treating this as more than a training session. So far he's pointed out that Rafinha moved forward too soon for Liverpool's opening goal, leaving space in behind for Mane to run into but not pointing out that had Bayern not passed the ball directly to Liverpool, he'd actually be in a dangerous attacking position.
He attempts to chip the ball over Neuer into the far corner, but it goes straight across the goal and out of harms way. And who is back to regain possession? These are the decisions that footballers have to make! Liverpool are pressing really high up the pitch when they lose the ball - as always - but are defending quite near their own box when Bayern get past the halfway line. Four minutes of stoppage time to play. Alexander-Arnold fires a long ball; Süle needlessly heads it across the line, conceding a corner. Things are getting worse for Bayern. Lewandowski disrupts his kick, but Coman fires the shot into the side netting.
Instead, he is a villain - a swine steiger! Liverpool are also defending well. Sanches now doesn't really seem to know what position he's playing. Alexander-Arnold has been really impressive out on Liverpool's right. It starts with game against Fortuna on Saturday, 24th November followed by matches against Benfica in Champions League and Werder Bremen in Bundesliga. Süle gives away a foul on Mané after the throw-in, and now Bayern have to defend a dangerous free kick. Liverpool defends the second one, too.
The outcome may have been irrelevant, but the standard of performance was not. Jurgen Klopp is animated on the sidelines too, almost as if he's taking this one pretty seriously. Second place Borussia Dortmund host Bayern Munich in a bid to reduce the points gap to just 2 poins if home side can get a win over mighty Bayern. It rules him out of the second leg in Munich. Kimmich kicks the ball away for a corner.
As far as quality of opposition goes, there are very few teams that can match Liverpool right now. He twists and turns and ducks around corners, never staying static and has spotted a run at the back post from Thomas Muller, who just can't reach the pass. Kimmich is dispossessed, but Keita hesitates too long with the ball. The home crowd is not amused. Klopp picked what could be considered his strongest line-up, save for the continued absence of James Milner and inclusion of goalkeeper Loris Karius.
Maybe it's on a rail across the roof or something. One and half weeks until the season. Bayern bring on Coman for Rodriguez, who goes straight down the tunnel. Absolutely brilliant from Ryan Kent who pulls off a magical piece of skill on the left, leaves the Bayern defence bamboozled and sets up Grujic for the shot. No one can reach it on the inside, but Liverpool do not convincingly clear it either.
