Jurgen Klopp was happy to settle for a goalless draw with Bayern Munich and believes the result favours Liverpool more.
A last-16, first-leg game low on quality and high on errors saw both teams, with a combined 10 European Cups, struggle to create chances with just three shots on target in 90 minutes.
Sadio Mane had the best two chances for the hosts, screwing a shot wide in the first half and then seeing a stooping header tipped away by Manuel Neuer in the final five minutes.
But, while the frustration grew to levels verging on annoyance in the final quarter of the game, Klopp believes the result is not as disappointing as it may first appear.
“I am pretty sure that Bayern in this moment feels a bit better than we do,” said the Liverpool manager.
“But we have three weeks and day by day the result will feel a bit better for us and a bit worse for Bayern because it’s a 0-0 and it’s the best draw you can get.
“It will be a tough one again to play at Bayern if you need a result. If we had won 1-0 what would have changed really?
“Then a 0-0 over there would have been enough or if we draw 1-1 but that’s now enough as well. So not perfect but good enough.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
