  • Liverpool trained on Tuesday for the final time ahead of Bayern Munich clash 
  • Jurgen Klopp and co will take a flight to Germany following the training session
  • Mo Salah admitted he would rather win Champions League than Premier League 
  • Liverpool travel to Munich needing to score a goal after drawing 0-0 in first leg

Jurgen Klopp has ran his players through their final preparations before travelling to Germany for their Champions League second leg decider against Bayern Munich.

The Liverpool players were put through their paces on Tuesday morning at their Melwood training base and will later board a flight to Germany. 

Klopp and co are scheduled to touch down later this afternoon and are expected to head off to the team hotel to settle in for the evening ahead of Wednesday’s crucial clash.

Mindful of the job at hand, the Liverpool boss didn’t seem to put his players through too many strenuous exercises as they enjoyed a light session.

The Liverpool squad appeared to be in high spirits with Mohamed Salah among a number of players seen smiling and laughing during training while youngster Rafael Camacho also took part.

The Egyptian winger has not been enjoying his best form in front of goal recently but Klopp will need him firing back to his best if they are to qualify on Wednesday night.

Liverpool need to score at least once to go through in 90 minutes having missed the opportunity to take a lead to Germany with the sides drawing 0-0 at Anfield in the first leg last month. 

Salah admitted on Tuesday that European glory is his priority above chasing Liverpool’s first English title since 1990. 

‘I will be honest with you, the most prestigious competition for me is the Champions League,’ Salah said.

‘But the dream for the entire city and the club is the league. So, I am happy to sacrifice my dream for their dream but if we win both that would great and this is what we are trying to do.’ 

Klopp’s men are still in position to challenge for the Premier League title as well having moved to within one point of leaders Manchester City following last weekend’s 4-2 victory against Burnley.
