Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago thinks rightly, that Liverpool has a huge chance to win the Champions League after losing his team in the last leg.
We beat the Germans 3-1 at the Allianz in what was arguably our most impressive performance of the season, after a 0-0 stalemate at Anfield.
With hindsight, Thiago believes that his team was very good second, far too defensive and that we are “the big favourites” with Barcelona – our opponents in the semifinals.
“We missed a lot of things. Heart, courage, football, “he told Goal.”If you want to succeed against such an opponent, you have to concentrate more and give 100%.
“I did not like our performance in the first leg. It’s very difficult to play Anfield, but we were too defensive.
“Of course, you get a 0-0, you defend yourself well but nothing happened in front of the goal of the opponent. We did not play well in both legs.
“With Man City eliminated, Barca and Liverpool are clearly my favourites. Personally, I really like Ajax. They play an impressive offensive football. “
The draw against Barca the next term is tantalizing.
It will be a chance to see personalities like Lionel Messi face Virgil van Dijk; Mo Salah cut Jordi Alba, Gerard Pique and Jordan Henderson grab Sergio Busquets.
Outside of the home, we must, of course, keep Messi as quiet as possible. Without him, we would say that the teams are almost equal on paper – but the greatest player to have ever deserved a football pitch is the favourite of the Catalan giants.
