After the 3-1 win which gave the Reds the qualification for the quarter finals, Fabinho has spoken to the Brazilian press about the match, claiming the Anfield side were very confident they would leave Germany with the qualification.
Like he has been since joining the club, Van Dijk really was so impressive on the night. Not since Bayern's Wembley win against Dortmund in 2013 has a Champions League been won without one of them in the victorious team and there has been no sign of either of them slowing up in this season's competition. "The other 25 percent is covered by Virgil van Dijk".
"It's a really big night, not only for Liverpool but I think for England", said midfielder Wijnaldum.
And Van Dijk's statistics reflect his mighty European outing.
His quality shined even more in contrast to Bayern's defensive pairing of Mats Hummels and Niklas Sule.
He provided the assist to Mane's opener and was also able to grab Liverpool's second goal on the night, which effectively ended the tie.
The odds looked to be stacked against Liverpool with Bayern going into the contest in such good form, but after a nervy beginning to the game for both sides, it was the Merseyside outfit who took the lead.
"Virgil gives organisation on set pieces, and he is unsafe", Klopp said with some understatement. "He is still young enough to get better".
They were finalists previous year and are among the top teams in the Premier League.
The Champions League round of 16 saw the Premier League's four representatives - Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham - each deliver a serious statement of intent as they booked their place in Friday's draw for the latter stages.
