Latest Liverpool news: Bayern Munich train in snow ahead of Champions League clash

Liverpool could be in for a storm at the Allianz Arena as Bayern Munich prepared for the midweek clash in the snow.

The English Twitter account of the Bundesliga giants posted a video highlighted their players training in the snow.

The account also posted a video of their training ground in Sabener completed engulfed in snow.

It will be interesting to see how we deal with the elements on Wednesday. Liverpool did pretty well against Burnley at the weekend though.

The wind certainly played its part during the game as it affected some of the lofted passes while the Reds played through a mini hailstorm in the first half.

Reds come back to prove a point

Munich have been in great form domestically, but Liverpool proved that they won’t let Manchester City run away with the Premier League title yet.

The Reds have seen the Cityzens usurp them in recent weeks and had to come from a goal down to beat Sean Dyche’s men at Anfield.

Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino scored braces in the 4-2 win as the Reds controlled most of the tie.

There were moments where Burnley troubled us and we have to ensure that the Bavarians don’t score on Wednesday.

Virgil van Dijk returning to the team for the second leg is a huge boost ahead of the tie. Hopefully, we keep things tight at the back, as we did in the reverse fixture against the Germans.

Liverpool have been linked with Real Madrid star James Rodriguez, according to El Confidencial (h/t Mirror).

The 27-year-old is on loan at Bayern Munich and is set to complete his two-year spell in the Bundesliga.

The report claims that Bayern might not sign the Colombian at the end of the two-year spell and Real would be looking to sell the former Monaco star.

Rodriguez hasn’t been consistent during his time in Germany, and he was poor in Bayern’s 3-1 loss to Liverpool in their Champions League exit in midweek.

However, the Colombian returned to form for Bayern as they scored six past a hapless Mainz side

The Colombian scored a brilliant hat-trick in the 6-0 win over Mainz as they kept their spot at the top of the Bundesliga.

The first goal wasn’t great but the second one was a screamer from outside the box. The Colombian then had the poise to chip the onrushing the keeper to complete his hat-trick.

Rodriguez could do a good job for us but his price point will be a big concern. The report suggests that Real would be looking at a minimum of £59m for the 27-year-old.

The Colombian hasn’t been able to replicate his form from the 2014 World Cup at Real and Bayern, and maybe another change in scenery could get the attacker’s career back on track.

Liverpool could do with more attacking players, especially as cover for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

Jota could be an exciting talent for the future and it is to be seen how we deal with this link. The Reds could do with more attacking options given that only Xherdan Shaqiri is an out-and-out winger in the first-team.
