Kovac hails Bayern display against Liverpool

Stalemate in Champions League first leg between Liverpool and Bayern Munich

Niko Kovac declared himself more than happy after his Bayern Munich side fought out a goalless draw with Liverpool at Anfield.

Liverpool have not lost in 20 European matches at Anfield dating back to October 2014, so Kovac was understandably delighted as the Champions League Round of 16 first-leg clash finished goalless.

The game which was 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.

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