Andy Robertson wants Bayern Munich to be faced with a ‘full-throttle’ Liverpool performance on Tuesday.
Anfield awaits Bayern next week for the first leg of a Champions League last-16 tie, and Robertson has stated the need for the Reds to be on peak form if they are to take a positive result to the Allianz Arena for the return fixture in March.
“We need to be full-throttle for that game. They are such a good team and they have been the last six or seven years so we know what a tough task it will be,” the left-back said.
“But we believe we can cause any teams problems and we have to be at our best.”
Liverpool’s previous home game, a 3-0 victory over Bournemouth last Saturday, was played out amid a raucous atmosphere and Jürgen Klopp’s side beat Paris Saint-Germain, Red Star Belgrade and Napoli in L4 in this season’s Champions League group stages.
Those three wins followed comprehensive Anfield successes against Manchester City and AS Roma in the competition’s quarter and semi-finals last term - an impressive sequence of results that Robertson is keen to continue versus Bayern.
“I think that's what all good teams do [maximise home advantage],” the Scotland captain stated.
“We had a good run last season and especially in the Champions League I think it helped massively. Everyone knows how special nights here are in the Champions League. We feed off each other.
“Players feed off the fans and the fans feed off the players because it's up to us to get them to have something to shout about. But it also helps when they're getting behind us and it can maybe give you that extra percentage or whatever in the game.
“That's what home fans are for. Every club's got it and it's all about making the most of it.”
