Liverpool have never lost to German opposition at Anfield and that record will stretch to 20 games should they avoid defeat by Bayern Munich.

The Reds have won 16 and drawn three of their previous meetings with clubs from Germany in L4, with 13 of those matches ending with the home side keeping a clean sheet.

Ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League last-16 first leg versus Bayern, take a look through a selection of more pertinent facts and figures from LFC statistician Ged Rea…

In total, Liverpool have played against German teams on 42 occasions, winning 21, drawing 14 and losing seven times.

The Reds are unbeaten in their last 19 European home outings, winning 14 and drawing five. In those fixtures, only FC Porto have prevented them from scoring. 

This will be the fifth time Liverpool have clashed with Bayern in a European tie and first since 2001, when Gerard Houllier’s side beat the Bavarians 3-2 to lift the UEFA Super Cup in Monaco.

In the last three seasons the Reds have faced German clubs, they have won the tie and gone on to reach the final of the tournament (2004-05 Champions League, 2015-16 Europa League and 2017-18 Champions League). 

Jürgen Klopp has won 15 of 19 two-legged ties in European competition as a manager. He has never lost a continental two-legged tie during his reign at Anfield, winning all eight.

Liverpool have not lost in their last six matches played in the last 16 of the Champions League, winning five and drawing the other with no goals conceded.

In their last 21 European games, the Reds have netted at least twice 14 times.
