"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".
"We knew how they would definitely set up and how they would probably come for us as well, and I think we did fantastic". I don't know about the statistics, but my impression is that there were not too many hard situations in and around our box. That says something about the team itself.
"There are some places in the world where whichever team would struggle. We have a lot of confidence but we also work hard to bring things together in a good way".More news: Powerball soars to almost $500 million
Liverpool displayed great professionalism to beat Bayern Munich 3-1 on Wednesday night, with a few standout individuals earning praise from the media.
"To score that [first] goal is obviously a big blow for them because they have to score two and for us we were then unlucky to concede the equaliser, but the second half was outstanding". Liverpool, however, kept up the pressure and were rewarded when Dutchman Van Dijk grabbed his third goal in his last four appearances in all competitions.
"Tonight we played - especially the second half - as good as necessary and as possible".
Defender Mats Hummels, formerly coached by Klopp when the pair were at Borussia Dortmund together, was also gracious in defeat.More news: Marvel working on a "What If" Animated anthology series for Disney Plus
"I was alone sometimes and I didn't have help, I couldn't do something and it was very hard", he said.
"The 1-2 took away our belief".
