Glen Johnson really, really loves Virgil van Dijk

As quoted by Bayern's official website, Kovac said: "We kept the contest open until Liverpool's second goal".

"But the truth is that I don't think Bayern knew what they wanted to do".

The Senegal forward scored twice on Wednesday to fire Liverpool to a 3-1 win away to Bayern Munich, earning them a place in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Virgil van Dijk delivered another valuable goal to put the Reds 2-1 up on the night, and then Mane made sure they would join English counterparts Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Manchester City in Friday's quarter final draw.

"In the first half we scored an outstanding goal - wow - and by half-time time everybody knew it would not be easy for Munich, and that is important information for the opponent after they were happy with a 0-0 at Anfield".

Liverpool have five European Cups in the trophy cabinet and we want no other Premier League team to nab one. He was the orchestrator in Munich and looked like a teenager playing among 10-year-olds, so comfortable was he on the ball.

With the score locked at 1-1, Virgil van Dijk rose above the defence and slammed home a header from a James Milner corner.

Defensively they were nearly ideal and they ended up getting the job done without too many major panics.

"We tried to push Liverpool, but in offence it was two versus four players and that's why we didn't match them". We have set a mark that this wonderful club is really at the top of the landscape of European football.

"Virgil gives organisation on set pieces, and he is unsafe", Klopp said with some understatement.

Liverpool's owner very rarely tweets but he felt the need to hail Van Dijk's performance. Whoever the Reds get drawn against will be more afraid of us than we will of them.

In the last three seasons Liverpool have faced German clubs, they have won the tie and gone on to reach the final: the Champions League in 2005, the Europa League in 2016 and also last season.
