Liverpool 0 v Bayern 0
By no means a classic. Liverpool were held to a goalless draw in an uninteresting game. Liverpool did create a few half chances none of which was converted by the usually prolific strikers. Mane was the major culprit. Salah was shackled by a very experienced defence.
The game became one where both sides had settled to a tactic of spoiling.
I believe the 2 legged matches create a more technical game where the home side has to try to defeat teams that purely try to stop the away side from scoring what is known as a valuable thing to take for the home leg.
