It is funny just how many people are just assuming that both Bayern Munich and Liverpool will both make it through the quarterfinals of the Champions League and into a semifinal showdown.

In fact, former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson is going as far to say that the Bavarians should already be worried about having to face Liverpool in the semifinals —you know, should both teams advance that far and all.
