Bayern eye domestic double as Premier League trumps Bundesliga

"We will see what we can do with it but it is a fantastic sign".

"We did not get the support he [Lewandowski] needs".

"I really don't care at all but we will probably draw an English club again".

"So when they score goals, a lot of it is between themselves. We also didn't have our best day", added the Bayern Munich manager.

Speaking after the game to Liverpool's official website, Klopp confirmed the captain's injury and admitted that it has taken some of the gloss off the famous victory.

Juventus managed to come back from a 2-0 loss in the first leg against Atletico Madrid in Madrid.

Asked about the Reds' summer transfer plans, Klopp said: "I don't want to talk exactly what we will do, but I don't think this is a team at the moment where we have to spend the big money or whatever".

Now 32, Babel hooked up with Fulham on a short-term contract in January and has played eight Premier League games for the Cottagers, scoring once.

But now that the Dutch global is back in the top flight, he thinks he knows information on van Dijk that nobody else has been able to pull together - which is incredible, really, considering the vast scouting and analytics beast that modern football has become.

Former Bayern and Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves believes a massive overhaul is long overdue for the Bavarian giants. You have to try and impress the other team and we did that.

"We have a set a bar for this wonderful club that we really are back on the landscape of top worldwide football".

If Liverpool win the Premier League this season, it will be down to the defensive stability that has been instilled by Van Dijk - they have kept 17 clean sheets in 30 games - but his contribution in the Champions League has been more subtle. "Bayern has so much quality, unbelievable, and we impressed them and that's a massive thing". "I am not like this". It doesn't bring back better results from the time when we lost.

Speaking as a pundit on BT Sport, Hargreaves said: "It is the end of an era, end of a cycle for Bayern Munich, a very successful one, but the better team won over two legs". He also scored a headed goal, Liverpool's crucial second, prompting Klopp to highlight his vast value to this team.
