Virgil van Dijk's Statistics From Bayern Munich Game Are Unbelievable

Name a better centre-half in world football right now than Virgil van Dijk.

We'll wait.

Liverpool's commanding Dutch defender produced a solid performance at the back as he guided his side to the Champions League quarter-finals.

Last season's finalist booked a spot in the next round after beating Bayern Munich 3-1 on aggregate with Van Dijk bagging his first Champions League goal for Liverpool.

The 27-year-old was imperious in defence, too. Whilst Liverpool failed to keep a clean sheet, he nullified Bundesliga's top scorer Robert Lewandowski.

And Van Dijk's statistics reflect his mighty European outing.

He won all his aerial duels and tackles, produced five clearances and three interceptions not to mention creating Sadio Mane's goal and scoring himself.

What a performance.

Liverpool are now in the hat for Friday's Champions League quarter-final/semi-final draw.

Jurgen Klopp's team are back in action on Sunday when they face Fulham in the Premier League.
