Merseyside giants Liverpool have qualified for the last eight of the Champions League after they saw off Bayern Munich in their last 16 tie.

The Reds were slight underdogs going into their second leg clash at the Allianz Arena after a goalless draw from the first leg at their home ground (Anfield) but they were able to navigate the tie after producing one of their best performances this season.

Liverpool defeated Bayern 3-1 in front of their fans thereby advancing to the last eight of the competition via a 3-1 aggregate win.

Senegalese international Sadio Mane was the star man for the Merseysiders after he scored two goals against Bayern Munich.

Mane gave Liverpool a priceless away goal with the first of his two goals in the 26th minute only for the hosts to drag themselves level thirteen minutes later after Joel Matip put through his own net from a Serge Gnabry cross.

Liverpool went on to score two second-half goals through Virgil Van Dijk and Sadio Mane to secure their passage into the quarterfinals.

The Reds would be hoping that they can go one better than last year when they reached the final before they were beaten 3-1 by Spanish giants Real Madrid.
