Considering the circumstances I guess keeping a clean sheet is okay. A bit dissapointed with Salah today, this is a game he should step up in but didn't make any mark at all. We look a complete different team without VVD, with him back we can cause an upset in munich I'm sure.
I too was a bit disappointed with Salah but he really had no space to run into. They defended him well always with a 2nd defender usually Martinez to block and take any passing/dribbling lanes. He had 2 chances really all match the first from Hendo's long ball forward that found Mo in behind the Bayern defense but it was just a yard to far. The 2nd chance from Trent's lofted ball from the left wing that Mo had to take first time but headed wide. I was a little surprised that we didn't switch to 4-2-3-1 in the 2nd half and play Mo as the #9 and let him run in behind more, he might have had more luck in that position at least it might have troubled Bayern more. Maybe Klopp was saving that for the 2nd leg?
A few shaky performances from Alisson and the fullbacks, things that we never saw happening but hopefully they'll be better in the return leg. Thought the CBs did well in limiting Lewandowski to nothing really and had the fullbacks dealt with Coman and Gnabry better then it would have been 1 way traffic, something for Klopp and co. to work on for next time.
0-0 is not a bad result by any means though of course the performance in the final third could be much improved. Just afraid of our away performances and results in the CL this season but if we put that out of our minds then we should be alright as a 0-1 would do or even a 1-1. All in all all to play for in the return leg so bring on the scum this weekend and let's tear them to shreds!
