Militao he finally made up for it with a good game. And it was not just anybody, but he did it in a quarterfinal of the Champions before him Liverpool, champion of England.
His presence in the crash was curious from the beginning. The truth is that the Brazilian pointed to the bench but the positive of Varane by Covid-19 he raised him to ownership at the last minute. And no longer in the duel before those of Klopp it also aims to be in the Classic and in the second leg of Champions in Anfield.
