The match is underway 

Starting line-ups:

Liverpool: Alisson, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Fabinho, Andrew Robertson, Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum, Naby Keita, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino

Bayern Munich: Manuel Neuer, Joshua Kimmich, Mats Hummels, Niklas Sule, David Alaba, Javi Martinez, Thiago, Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman, James Rodriguez, Robert Lewandowski

21:00 Kingsley Coman shakes off an injury in time to make Bayern's starting XI against Liverpool. 

21:00 Mohamed Salah spearheads Liverpool attack, with Fabinho dropping back to the central defence to replace the suspended Van Dijk. 

19:00 Bayern will miss winger Franck Ribery and central defender Jerome Boateng. Ribery stayed in Munich after becoming a father and Boateng is nursing a stomach virus.

18:00 Liverpool top the Premier League table, on level with Manchester City but with a game in hand over them. Bayern are second in the Bundesliga, three behind leaders Borussia Dortmund. 

16:00 Liverpool's Egyptian star Salah has scored three goals and provided six assists in the Champions League so far this season. 

15:00 "In Germany a lot of people talk now about the atmosphere at Anfield. There was a lot of talk that we are maybe the most emotional club in world football," Klopp said.

14:00 Klopp is hoping the power of Anfield's famous atmosphere on a European night will give his side the extra helping hand they need to take a lead to Germany in three weeks' time.

13:00 Liverpool have had 10 days to prepare for Bayern's visit, but despite the lay-off Jurgen Klopp still has defensive problems to resolve.

Virgil van Dijk is suspended, Joe Gomez is sidelined with a lower leg fracture and Dejan Lovren faces a race against time to recover from a hamstring injury, so Joel Matip and Fabinho are expected to form a make-shift centre-back pairing.


Stay tuned as match is due to start at 22:00 Cairo time (GMT+2)


Venue: Anfield (Liverpool)

Referee: Gianluca Rocchi
