Liverpool left back Andy Robertson has spoken about the importance of the upcoming Champions League Clash with Bayern Munich. Whilst talking to The Daily Mail, he has said that he expects the Reds to be at ‘full throttle’ when they come up against the German powerhouse on Tuesday evening.
Robertson believes that the warm weather camp will have allowed the squad to ‘recharge their batteries’ to be able to head into the Last 16 fixture well prepared.
The Scotland captain has said “When we landed in Marbella on Monday our full focus was on the Bayern Munich game. We need to be full throttle for that game. They are such a good team and they have been the last six or seven years so we know what a tough task it will be. But we believe we can cause any teams problems and we have to be at our best.”
Anfield has become a fortress recently, with the Reds not losing at home in the UCL since a 3-0 defeat to current champions Real Madrid in 2014.
The Crowd is often seen to be the 12th man for the Reds and Robertson has spoken about the importance of this.
“Everyone knows how special nights here are in the Champions League. We feed off each other. Players feed off the fans and the fans feed off the players because it’s up to us to get them to have something to shout about.”
“But it also helps when they’re getting behind us and it can maybe give you that extra percentage or whatever in the game.”
“That’s what home fans are for. Every club’s got it and it’s all about making the most of it.”
Jurgen Klopp will be hoping that his players are able to gain an advantage against the German champions in the first leg, before they travel to Munich, which is sure to be a difficult second leg.
