Liverpool fans are pretty happy to draw Bayern Munich in the second round of the Champions League.
Ordinarily, it would seem an incredibly difficult draw for the Reds, but Bayern's struggles in the Bundesliga makes them one of the easier teams in the draw.
The German champions find themselves beneath Borussia Monchengladbach and Borussia Dortmund, while their recent form in Europe has left a lot to be desired.
Nevertheless, Jurgen Klopp isn't getting complacent with the result and told Liverpool's official website after the draw: "It was clear it would be difficult [and] they are obviously a top side.
"For me it’s nice, going to Germany. But it’s just the draw. So we have now time to prepare the game, a lot of time obviously, and hopefully we have all our players available then.
Liverpool vs Bayern Munich
"It will be a tough one, an interesting one, and I am looking forward to it. his is a different Bayern than what I played, we are already here for three years [and] since the Audi Cup [in the summer of 2017]."
It will be an intriguing tie that's for sure and Liverpool's front three will be crucial towards securing a result for the Premier League side.
Roberto Firmino has experienced playing against Bayern during his time in Germany and Salah scored during the aforementioned Audi Cup tie.
Sadio Mane vs Bayern Munich
But it's perhaps Sadio Mane who has the fondest memories of playing against the Bavarians, something he did during his time with RB Salzburg.
His performance in a 2014 friendly against Bayern even inspired a 'Welcome to Liverpool' video, which holds up today as a remarkable display.
Despite Bayern being European champions at the time and under Pep Guardiola's management, they were trounced 3-0 with Mane both scoring and assisting.
Take a look at Mane's superb individual highlights down below:
If that's what a 22-year-old Mane can do against a superb Bayern team, what can his older self achieve against a much weaker version of the club?
Although it was only a friendly, it was Guardiola's way of returning his team from the winter break and players like Toni Kroos, Manuel Neuer and Thomas Muller were all playing.
So it certainly bodes well for Mane's chances of causing problems against Bayern this season and they are less prepared to cope with him this time around.
Even if the Senegalese forward somehow flopped, however, there are still numerous in-form Liverpool players who could cause them serious problems.
During Liverpool's last clash with the German side, Mane once again found the net and was joined by Salah in one of his first appearances for the clubs.
All that considered, there's already plenty of concerns for Niko Kovac and the game is almost two months away.
