Gary Lineker states his prediction for Liverpool FC v Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben in action against Manchester City during the UEFA Champions League Group D match at the City of Manchester Stadium

Robert Lewandowski is the top scorer in the Champions League this season with eight goals in six games and will fancy his chances against Liverpool's makeshift back four.

Kovac said at his pre-match press conference ahead of Tuesday's last-16 first leg: "I want to say once again we are playing tomorrow against an opponent where it is the most hard draw".

Bayern have not reached a final since they last won the Champions League in 2013 against Borussia Dortmund, who were then managed by Liverpool's Juergen Klopp, and Kimmich believes they can not be considered among Europe's elite on current form.

"If we have to choose, we choose both", he said.

Van Dijk is banned for the last 16, first leg on Tuesday after being booked three times as last season's finalists squeezed through the group stages by the narrowest of margins thanks to more goals scored than Napoli. I don't know if there is a favourite or not.

"They are two really quality teams and two of the biggest teams in the world". All it takes is one moment, one small misjudgment, and you get punished at the highest level. You can show things and say things to people - that's relatively easy - but putting it into practice is the difficulty.

"But for now it's the Champions League and we have to do our best tomorrow. I can't imagine that".

Liverpool are heading into Tuesday's Champions League clash with Bayern Munich without several key players, with injuries ruling out Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez, while Virgil Van Dijk is suspended and Roberto Firmino suffering from a virus.

Despite Liverpool's own pedigree at home in European football, Kovac insists his squad boast the experience to handle the pressure of playing at Anfield.

"The atmosphere will definitely be good, but I'm sure my players have gone through a lot of big games with great atmospheres, so that's not an argument that we shouldn't be able to compete tomorrow".
