Liverpool players celebrate following Sadio Mane's third goal against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena

On a night were Liverpool had many outstanding performers, Klopp also paid tribute to Sadio Mane, scorer of the first goal.

The Senegalese's 18th and 19th goals of the season helped Liverpool join Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in the quarter-finals, the first time since 2009 that four English teams have reached this stage of the competition.

"We again set a mark for this wonderful club, that we really are back on the landscape of worldwide top football".

"We all feel that's where this club belongs and we proved it at least a little bit".

The former Germany midfielder told Sky Deutschland: "We were knocked out of the World Cup early, we have been relegated in the Nations League and the Champions League ended for all the German teams in the round of 16".

Playing your best football, free-flowing, is not possible against this team because you can not use your speed really.

"It wasn't about me and him but I think its always hard to play against me and Joel together". I don't want to speak about it really. He has brought the same defensive organisation, but with more time and space to use his ball-playing abilities, he has also enabled Liverpool to be more dynamic playing out from the back.

"Top performance tonight in a hostile atmosphere, certainly going 1-1 before half-time", the ex-England defender began.

FC Barcelona haven't only qualified for the quarter finals of the Champions League but, in the contest against Lyon, broke another record in Europe's top tier competition.

Messi gave Ernesto Valverde's side the breathing room they craved when he finished off a superb individual move with just over ten minutes to go in the second half.
