Setting out with a cautious game plan, Bayern, the last German club to win the tournament in 2013, didn't have a shot on target for over 80 minutes.
"Bayern Munich put in a performance tonight like a really experienced, top-class Champions League team - and that's what they are".
"It is not the result or the game we dreamed of", Klopp said. "We had our moments and in those moments you have to score".
Although the Champions League is still a firm priority for the Reds, it seemingly has taken less significance this season with Liverpool in a titanic battle for their first ever Premier League title.
Roberto Firmino was the pick of the three at Anfield while Sadio Mane missed chances and Mo Salah ran down blind alleys. It's 0-0, the best draw you can get. Bayern were unable to score themselves, so a goal for Liverpool in the Allianz Arena next month will give them the edge. A hamstring injury has sidelined Dejan Lovren since January 7, but he might return to face Bayern Munich.
So there is plenty about which Liverpool should be optimistic.
"I think they would have preferred to have the second leg at home but as they showed last season against a couple of teams, Roma and Manchester City for example, they just blasted early on". The Bavarians then go to bogey team Borussia Mönchengladbach (02/03) and entertain Wolfsburg (09/03) before Liverpool come calling (13/03).

Umtiti Named in Barcelona Squad to Face Lyon
Atletico Madrid and Juventus were both able to knock out Barcelona in 2016 and 2017 respectively after denying them an away goal. The last time they failed to make it past the round of 16 was in 2006/07 when they were eliminated by Liverpool .
Top-scorer in the Champions League this season with eight goals, Bayern star Lewandowski was looking to net for a fifth consecutive game in the competition.
Lovren returning would be a boost for Liverpool, who otherwise look set to play Fabinho alongside Joel Matip at the back.
This season, their early form was red-hot and they have undoubtedly hit a bump in the road and must now lift themselves again. It is still too close to call, but don't be fooled into thinking that 0-0 at home is a bad result for Liverpool.
"We made life more hard with the last pass today - about 10 or 12 times a promising situation [fizzled out]".
I was still impressed by how well the Liverpool defence played, though, and it will have been a big confidence boost that they kept a clean sheet without their best defender.
"Liverpool's recent blip does not make any difference in the Champions League", Lineker, the BT Sport presenter and former England striker, told i.
