English Premier League giants Liverpool are one of the most feared clubs in Europe because of their history and how many times they have hurt bigger sides in the past.

The European competition is set to resume again with the Merseyside outfit hosting German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich on Tuesday evening for the round of 16.

Already, Bayern Munich players have started pouring out their fears with star winger Arjen Robben already claiming that the Anfield is the worst stadium in the world owing to the disappointments he has had at the club in recent time as a Chelsea player.

Joshua Kimmich is also admitted that the trip to the Anfield would be a difficult one for his side because of the Reds are in better shape than his Bayern Munich team.

However, Liverpool are hoping that they can do more to win a double this season with the Premier League also being attended to.

Records have it that at this stage in the history of the competition, Liverpool have the second highest tie win percentage with 83.3% behind Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona with 85.7% in the round of 16.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are tipped to have the advance with the first leg expected to be played at home.
