Arjen Robben thinks Bayern Munich have been given the "worst possible draw" in the Champions League.

Arjen Robben thinks Bayern Munich have been given the “worst possible draw” in the Champions League as they face Liverpool in the last-16.

The Reds have only lost one Premier League match all season with the defeat coming to second-placed Manchester City, who trail Jurgen Klopp’s men by four points.

Liverpool secured their passage through to the knockout phase of the Champions League with a 1-0 win over Napoli in their final group match, while Bayern were unbeaten in their group with four wins and two draws.

However, Robben believes Bayern – who sit second and six points off leaders Dortmund in the Bundesliga – have been handed the trickiest of ties against last season’s runners-up.

“Liverpool is doing well again, just like last year when they made it to the final, and I also see them as a favourite for the Champions League victory this season,” Robben told football-oranje.com.

”For us, it was perhaps the worst possible draw, but it’s going to be a great challenge, we have to look at ourselves, keep working hard and improve ourselves.

“If we have a good day and play the way we want, I’m sure we’ll make it very difficult for Liverpool.”
