After drawing 0-0 at Anfield in the first leg, the two teams meet in the return leg at Allianz Arena on Wednesday. And James Rodriguez feels the Bavarians have every chance of going through if they play up to their best.
"We have to play a perfect game at home to go through. Liverpool have very fast players, they feel comfortable when you give them space. That's why we have to be very focused, highly motivated and play a good game," James Rodriguez said on the club's website and added:
"I think we have to be very careful. Their counters are very fast. But I think we have every chance of making it into the next round."
"I always have faith and I always want to win. I always want to play in the Champions League and so I hope that we do well and progress. That's what we all want," the Colombian international underlined.
Wednesday's game will kick off at 21:00 CET.
