Many football supporters were excited to watch two interesting last sixteen round fixtures, expecting a feast of goals on Tuesday night

One of the most common predictions by pundits is that there will be goals when Bayern Munich visited Liverpool at Anfield in the Uefa Champions League.

Instead both clubs hardly took a shot at anger at the opposing keepers. The Bundesliga giants were happy to sit back and soak up the pressure in this 0-0 encounter.

Bayern's plan was to take this game to Munich, knowing that victory at home will move them into the quarter-finals.

For the home side at Anfield, the Reds were guilt of losing possession in the final third on many occasions. Whenever they were outnumbering the opposition in attack, they often made the wrong choice. Sometimes they did get through into the box, with the likes of Senegal star Sadio Mane wasting a few good opportunities.

This game caught the bulk of attention on South African Twitter, as you can see below. One would expect there would at least be a goal by Barcelona or home side Lyon in the other game, but both those sides failed to break the deadlock too.
