The UEFA Champions League returns with a bang on Tuesday as RB Leipzig face 2018/19 champions Liverpool. In this week's "Bundesliga Connection", Kres Harrington discusses whether or not Alisson Becker has "Loris Karius syndrome" after the Brazilian added to his side's woes recently.
The Champions League is back with the round of 16 matches kicking off this week, with RB Leipzig taking on Liverpool on a neutral pitch due to COVID-19 restrictions in Germany.
Can the struggling Reds beat second-in-Bundesliga Leipzig? Liverpool have only managed to win two of their past five games and, with a poor defensive record, one could say that "Liverpool are in a rut".
In the latest episode of the SL Podcast's "The Bundesliga Connection", DW sports correspondent Kres Harrington provides an analysis of the Champions League round of 16 matches featuring four teams from Germany's top flight.
The first match sees RB Leipzig take on Liverpool on Tuesday night, while Borussia Dortmund will face 2019/20 UEFA Europa League winners Sevilla on Wednesday. Current title holders Bayern Munich will meet Lazio next week Tuesday, while Borussia Monchengladbach will do battle with Manchester City next Wednesday.
Kres also talks about Bayern's latest transfer business after they beat the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea to the signature of Dayot Upamecano.
