Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge were all smiles as Liverpool geared up for their Augsburg clash on Thursday night.

Jurgen Klopp’s return to his homeland did not result in victory as his Liverpool side were kept at bay by Augsburg goalkeeper Marwin Hitz, with Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Alberto Moreno all thwarted in a 0-0 stalemate.

The result was the Reds’ seventh Europa League goalless draw in total, a new competition record.

Liverpool’s record in 33 games against German teams is W15 D12 L6 (W11 D3 L0 at home).

They won their first European trophy by beating VfL Borussia Mönchengladbach in the 1973 Uefa Cup final and overcame the same opponents in the 1977 European Champion Clubs’ Cup decider.

Liverpool are unbeaten in five European home matches (W2 D3) since a 3-0 loss to Real Madrid CF in the 2014/15 Champions League group stage.

Klopp replaced Brendan Rodgers as Liverpool manager last October. His Dortmund side won the Bundesliga in 2010/11, scooped a double the next season and lost to Bayern München in the 2013 Champions League final.
