produced a masterful Champions League away performance to eliminate the mighty Bayern Munich and secure a passage to the quarter-finals of the competition for a second consecutive season. No-one watching could say it was undeserved, either. The Merseysiders were in total control, and never looked like losing, even when the Joel Matip diverted a Serge Gnabry cross into his own net from one of the few Bayern attacks of note. Controlling a match at the Allianz Arena required midfield dominance, and Georginio Wijnaldum was the only one of the visitors’ three starting midfielders to play the entire 90 minutes. In his unfussy, team-first way, the Dutchman linked all points of the team and helped his side maintain control. Yet, many fans were very critical on social media. Wijnaldum is not a player who lights up matches and is hit-and-miss around the opposition penalty box. But those slaughtering his performance do not appreciate a footballer far better than they give him credit for.
