The mainstay striker of Bayern Munich, Robert Lewandowski, stressed that at this time the focus of his team was none other than the match against Liverpool in the last 16 of the European Champions League. The Polish National Team player believes Bayern Munich will be able to get rid of Jurgen Klopp’s landing squad, despite the fact the Premier League giants appear more convincing on paper throughout the campaign this season.
As is known, Bayern Munich managed to finish as the top of the standings in the elimination phase of the European Champions League group phase yesterday, while Liverpool on one side only finished as runners-up under Paris Saint-Germain. Based on draws made by UEFA some time ago, these two teams will certainly face each other in the two leg round of the last 16 of this annual competition.
Liverpool looked more convincing than Bayern, because in fact the Niko Kovac’s squad recorded a series of poor results this season, so they still haven’t been able to take over the top of the standings from the hands of rivals Borussia Dortmund. Whereas Liverpool were at the top of the Premier League standings, with only one defeat so far.
Naturally, if on paper, Jurgen Klopp’s squad is believed to be superior to the defending champions of the German Bundesliga. But, just confirmed by striker Robert Lewandowski that his team will fight hard to win in the party later.
“I think we played well during the group phase. Of course now we get a super difficult opponent, Liverpool. Right now, they are at the top of the English Premier League. We still have a few more weeks, I think what will be important is how we keep our feelings a week before the clash. ”
“If we are ready, we are prime, then we will fight and I hope we qualify for the next round. Of course this is a dream we can get rid of Liverpool. We know this will be a very difficult match and from the first minute to 90 minutes, we have to focus 100 percent, “told the Polish National Team player to the reporters.
