Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand has said Liverpool’s front three can “destroy” Bayern Munich, in their Champions League showdown on Wednesday.
The Reds travel to Germany for the second leg with the last-16 tie finely balanced after a 0-0 draw at Anfield.
With Liverpool at full strength, Ferdinand believes the front three of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane could run riot.
“I think it’s going to be a great game and a great occasion. It’s a chance for Liverpool to say we are in this tournament and put in a good performance against an aging, declining Bayern team.
“It is 50-50, but the happier camp’s got to be the Liverpool team.
“You get an away goal and I think they’re in the driving seat. They can sit back and think their front three can destroy Bayern.
“Van Dijk is back too to marshal the backline, Liverpool have got to be the confident team going into this,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport.
