Latest Liverpool news: Naby Keita out of clash against Bayern Munich in Champions League
The report claims that Keita is carrying a minor injury and did not travel with the side to Germany.
The 24-year-old has had a stop-start season so far with Liverpool. The midfielder has played some quality games, however, he hasn’t started too many ties in recent weeks.
Keita only has one assist to his name all season and was a sub in the wins over Watford and Burnley.
Liverpool need to be at their best
The Reds aren’t firing on all cylinders but need to get an away goal against the Bavarians. The first leg ended 0-0 and facing Bayern at the Allianz Arena will not be an easy task.
The Germans are in great form having toppled Borussia Dortmund from the Bundesliga table. They also scored six goals in their last game while the Reds ran out 4-2 winners at the weekend.
Keita could have started against the Bavarians as we need to get a goal, and the 24-year-old played the reverse fixture a few weeks ago.
The Guinea midfielder faced the Bavarians during his time with RB Leipzig, and several fans weren’t happy that Jurgen Klopp’s options were reduced for the midfield.

Keita was to provide better attacking threat after Coutimho left and hes done that, Klopp just doesnt play him as much as he should. Hes quality

I still think Keita is the real deal despite these setbacks. Am 100% positive
Obviously not this season but will come good 2019/20

Keita being out is annoying, but great to see Nat Phillips travelling with the squad. Got injured when we needed him the most, but hopefully he gets integrated into the squad so if needed he can do the job. pic.twitter.com/bN9R0sXvcF
