Top scorer in the Champions League and particularly prolific at the Allianz Arena, Al Hain-Cole is backing the Polish striker to punish the Reds

After putting in a defensive away performance in the 0-0 first leg draw, Bayern Munich will need to show a bit more attacking ambition when Liverpool visit the Allianz Arena for Wednesday's Champions League clash.

Top scorer in the competition after firing eight times in the group stages, Robert Lewandowski is William Hill's 3/1 (4.00) favourite to break the deadlock in a finely balanced tie.

Considering he has scored 23 times in his last 22 Champions League home games - and nine in 10 knockout games - odds of 17/20 (1.85) actually look fairly generous on the Polish goal machine coming back to haunt his former Borussia Dortmund manager.

With Thomas Muller suspended, Arjen Robben injured, and Kinglsey Coman suspended, Lewandowski certainly looks likely to shoulder the main goal-scoring burden for Niko Kovac's side.

Nevertheless, Serge Gnabry's recent return of five goals in seven matches makes him a tempting anytime bet at more generous 17/10 (2.70) odds, while Franck Ribery is available at 12/5 (3.40) to provide a reminder of his quality with an important goal.

At the other end of the pitch, the Reds will be hoping to rediscover the cutting edge that has deserted them in recent away trips – with James Milner’s penalty in Paris their only goal on the road in three group games.

Despite currently enduring his longest barren streak in a Liverpool shirt after five games without a goal, Mohamed Salah remains his side’s 5/1 (6.00) favourite to open the scoring and priced at 6/4 (2.50) to strike anytime.

Similarly, Roberto Firmino has only been on target in two of his last 10 appearances, but is a 23/10 (3.30) shot to come up with the goods in Germany after netting twice against Burnley on Sunday.

In fact, Sadio Mane is the man in form after firing eight times in the last nine matches, so probably offers the most temptation at 13/8 (2.63) anytime for the visitors.
