Ryan Babel Virgil van Dijk

Centre back Virgil van Dijk, who had missed the first leg last month, killed off any German hopes of a comeback when he rose high to head home in the 69th minute before Mane headed in his second in the 84th.

The Netherlands worldwide has been a consistent presence at the back for Jurgen Klopp's men since his world-record transfer from Southampton in January 2018.

The 27-year-old was imperious in defence, too.

The Reds advanced to the Champions League quarter-finals thanks to goals from Virgil van Dijk and Sadio Mane.

The ex-England worldwide also praised Van Dijk for his assured style of play before admitting he would love to have played with the Dutchman.

"I feel like we've taken a really big step, because a lot of people said after the first match that it was not a good result to play a 0-0, but we had a good feeling about it because we didn't concede a goal".

"When players see him as calm as he is in every situation, it rubs off and everyone puffs themselves out as well". "We are in the fight for first position in the league, but we want to play in the Champions League as well, which is the tournament we want to go far in, we want to give everything in this competition as well".

Van Dijk got the ball rolling for Liverpool in the 26th minute at the Allianz Arena after his long ball was superbly plucked out of the air by Sadio Mane. We had [Daniel] Agger and [Martin] Skrtel.

Liverpool made it a ideal four for English clubs in the UEFA Champions League this season as they beat Bayern Munich to join Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham in the quarterfinals.

Jurgen Klopp's team are back in action on Sunday when they face Fulham in the Premier League.

Van Dijk will be expected to retain his spot in the starting XI against the Cottagers and Johnson believes he has mastered the art of defending.

"All of the teams have gone through to the next round, and for us of course it was really good because we managed to win an away game at Bayern Munich - which is quite hard".
