Mane's solo strike v Bayern from six great angles

Liverpool players celebrate following Sadio Mane's third goal against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena

I knew we had a chance but I didn't expect it would happen, but the boys made it happen and it was really brilliant. "The other 25 percent is covered by Virgil van Dijk".

Sadio Mane displayed "ridiculous" skill while scoring Liverpool's first goal in their 3-1 win at Bayern Munich on Wednesday to help the Premier League club ease into the Champions League quarter-finals, team mate James Milner said.

Take a look at Mane's superlative goal from half-a-dozen angles in the video above.

The 27-year-old was imperious in defence, too.

"We tried to push Liverpool, but in offence it was two versus four players and that's why we didn't match them".

And Van Dijk's statistics reflect his mighty European outing. He has brought the same defensive organisation, but with more time and space to use his ball-playing abilities, he has also enabled Liverpool to be more dynamic playing out from the back.

Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels heads clear under pressure from Liverpool's Roberto Firmino. "He's so good on the ball, so calm, big and strong - there's not really a weakness in his game at the moment".

The Senegal global also headed in Liverpool's third of the night for his 10th goal in as many games in all competitions for the Merseyside club. He also scored a headed goal, Liverpool's crucial second, prompting Klopp to highlight his huge value to this team. You saw a set-piece can be decisive in a match like this. "He is a massive threat".

Despite starting on the bench for the Champions League clash against Bayern Munich, the Brazilian player soon had the responsibility of replacing club captain Jordan Henderson, and did a good job even with all the pressure on the game. "He is still young enough to get better".

Liverpool's owner very rarely tweets but he felt the need to hail Van Dijk's performance.

In the last three seasons Liverpool have faced German clubs, they have won the tie and gone on to reach the final: the Champions League in 2005, the Europa League in 2016 and also last season.
