Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has urged his sides fans to create a powerful atmosphere in their Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.
The Reds face the German league champions in the first leg of their last 16 tie at Anfield on Tuesday night, as daunting a task as they could have expected in the first knockout round.
Klopp has said that the crowd can help Liverpool raise their game to “140%”, an oddly specific number that we’re not really sure how he arrived at.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager says his charges need to make it easy for the supporters to get behind them first by putting in a strong performance.
“We have to create an atmosphere on the pitch and make it easier for the people,” said Klopp at his pre-match press conference.
“It will be outstanding. It’s something to enjoy – there’s a lot of power involved in the atmosphere.”
“Playing home first is not usually an advantage but we don’t care,”
“There are two legs to play. Let’s create a basis we can use in the second game.
“Our crowd is really able to push us from 100% to 140%.”
