Liverpool’s Naby Keita attends a training session
The Guinea international has been forced out of the tie with a minor injury and duly failed to travel with the squad that flew out to Germany on Tuesday, having also missed training due to the knock.
Keita played the final 13 minutes of Liverpool’s 4-2 win over Burnley in the English Premier League this past weekend, having managed a mere six points in the three games prior to the match at Anfield on Sunday.
The 24-year-old, who played 76 minutes in the first-leg against Bayern last month, has made a total of 27 appearances across all competitions for the Reds this season.
Liverpool were held to a 0-0 draw by the German Champions on Merseyside and head to the Allianz Arena for Wednesday’s second-leg knowing a score-draw will be enough to book their place in the quarterfinals of the competition.
