Cape Town - Liverpool star Virgil van Dijk believes his side
have the defensive resolve to overcome Bayern Munich in their second-leg of their Champions League Round of 16 clash.
Jurgen Klopp returns to Germany after a goalless first-leg
at Anfield, where Bayern left happiest with the draw.
But Liverpool's defensive record, particularly domestically
where they have conceded just 17 goals in 30 Premier League matches, means it
will not be easy for the German champions.
"They played very well here, kept it tight especially at the
back and they obviously showed us a lot of respect," said Van Dijk.
"They changed a bit the way they played I think, so we need
to be up for a big fight because they are probably going to come all in,
especially in the beginning.
"It is going to be tough and we need to do better than we
did in the last away games in the Champions League.
"The group stage games were not as good as we wanted but we
got through to the knockout phase.
"To keep a clean sheet in the first leg is always good for
both teams but we know if we score they need to score two.
"That is how it is.
We want to win the game and go through."
Kick-off is at 22:00 (SA time).
