Serge Gnabry sends Liverpool warning to Bayern Munich players

After starring against Chelsea on Tuesday, Bayern Munich attacker Serge Gnabry has urged his teammates not to be complacent when they host the English side for the return leg on March 11.

Gnabry scored a brace in the tie and according to the German, his side should be careful and focused because Liverpool showed against Barcelona last year that leads can be overturned.

Speaking to BT Sports, Gnabry said: "Three goals should give us a lot of confidence. We need to be prepared for the second leg and we can't take it serious enough.

“It's still open but I think we have a good advantage. I think we knew we had to be patient. We had the game under control in the first half. I think we had a couple of chances with Lewa (Robert Lewandowski) and Thomas (Muller) and didn't take them.

“But we knew we had to be patient and that we'd get our chances and in the end we took them. We saw last season with Liverpool beating Barcelona, we know we have to be careful and focus."

Bayern heads into the second leg with a three-goal cushion after Robert Lewandowski’s 76th-minute added to those of Gnabry but the same scoreline is the same to that Barcelona had when they headed to Anfield after the first-leg win at Camp Nou last season.

Gnabry’s brace took his London goal tally to six in the Champions League this term, following on from his four-goal showing at Tottenham in October.
