Giving some of the stars from Germany’s record-breaking football team and their trainer Niko Kovac the opportunity to get in touch with some Bavarian culture by dressing for the shoot in Lederhosen the traditional attire of Bavaria.

Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovac was more than happy with his side’s 0-0 draw with Liverpool at Anfield.

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.

Liverpool have now not lost in 20 European matches at Anfield dating back to October 2014.

“I can’t remember that many clubs that have not lost and not conceded at Anfield,” he said.

“Liverpool, they are a sensationally-good team. We didn’t score, but we didn’t let one in.

“We’re at home now and home games are an advantage.

“That’s a great performance. We’ve got the quality and we’ve showed that over recent years but we haven’t achieved anything and I’m the last person to start celebrating.”
