Liverpool fans will have been waiting for tonight’s clash with Bayern Munich for a very long time. The Reds have got a huge clash at Anfield ahead of them as two of the world’s best goalkeepers will be going head to head in Alisson Becker and Manuel Neuer, and the fans cannot wait to see their Brazilian in action.

One of the key battles will be between the two shot-stoppers, Manuel Neuer has been passed fit late as he was initially believed to be missing the Anfield leg of the tie, however, he’s now deemed ready to face the Reds, and he could be in for a long evening. At the other end, though, Alisson is looking as solid as ever and it was the Brazilian’s incredible save against Napoli that ensured they made it to this stage.
In the eds last game against Napoli at Anfield in the Champions League group stages the Reds needed to either win 1-0 or win by two or more goals to progress seeing as they lost 1-0 away in Italy. With the score at 1-0, the ball fell to Akadiusz Milik in the box who got a good shot away with hs right foot just for it to be smothered by the onrushing Alisson. It was a save that kept the Kopites in the Champions League, and now they want to see more of that against Bayern tonight.

Worth every penny we paid for him he's covered his fee over and over already

A truly world class goalkeeper. Neuer isn’t bad either.
