Bayern Munich frustrated Liverpool at Anfield with a 0-0 result. The Reds will travel to Germany to take on the Bavarians in Allianz Arena for a return leg, in a bid for a quarter final place.
But with the race to English Premier League title getting more tight, some pundits have argued that Jurgen Klopp should prefer one trophy. When asked, the German coach was not in a position to say which of the two trophies he preferred.
The stalemate UCL results in England means that the Mersyside outfit have a daunting task when they travel to Germany. Chances of eliminating the Bundesliga giants in home turf are thin. It should be seen that Liverpool have chosen to focus on EPL race or has been compelled by nature to leave the Big Ears for the big boys.
A survey conducted showed that a larger proportion of the Reds fans would prefer their club ending their twenty-nine year drought to the Champions League which they boast of an English record of five-time champions.
The 18-time Premier League champions are second on the log with 65 points, leveled on points with leader Manchester City who have a superior goal difference. However, the Reds have played one game less.
Tottenham Hotspurs come third with 60 points piling more pressure to the top two. Liverpool next face arch rivals, Manchester United on February 24 at Old Trafford in a match that pundits said that could have a bearing on the EPL title race.
