'Worst possible draw' - Robben admits Bayern Munich fear Liverpool

Arjen Robben believes Bayern Munich got the "worst possible draw" for the Champions League last-16 round.

The Bundesliga giants will face last season's finalists Liverpool over two legs, with the first to be played at Anfield next month.

And Robben admits Bayern face a stern test against Jurgen Klopp's Premier League leaders.

"Liverpool is doing well again, just like last year when they made it to the final, and I also see them as a favourite for the Champions League victory this season," Robben said.

"For us, it was perhaps the worst possible draw, but it's going to be a great challenge, we have to look at ourselves, keep working hard and improve ourselves.

"If we have a good day and play the way we want, I'm sure we'll make it very difficult for Liverpool."
