Dejan Lovren Became An Internet Meme Without Even Playing Tonight
Dejan Lovren watched Liverpool vs. Bayern Munich dressed like 'Little Red Riding Hood', and instantly became a meme.
The Croatian defender was unavailable for Liverpool's Champions League round of 16 first-leg through injury, but he watched on from the stands.
Needless to say, his appearance got everyone talking.

In Lovren's absence, Jurgen Klopp selected Fabinho and Joel Matip as his center-backs and the pair managed to keep a clean sheet as they drew 0-0 with Bayern Munich.
The return leg goes down in three weeks time.
