Rio Ferdinand thinks Liverpool’s front three will “destroy” Bayern Munich if they get an early goal in the Allianz Arena.
The Reds face the German giants on Wednesday night in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 clash, which is finely poised at 0-0 after the first leg at Anfield.
And Ferdinand thinks Liverpool should be the “confident” team going into the match with Virgil van Dijk back for the tie.
“I think it’s going to be a great game and a great occasion. It’s a chance for Liverpool to say we are in this tournament and put in a good performance against an aging, declining Bayern team,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.
“It is 50-50, but the happier camp’s got to be the Liverpool team.
“You get an away goal and I think they’re in the driving seat. They can sit back and think their front three can destroy Bayern.
“Van Dijk is back too to marshal the backline, Liverpool have got to be the confident team going into this.”
