Andy Robertson is just one booking away from a suspension in the Champions League, meaning if he is booked tonight against Bayern Munich, he will miss the second leg at the Allianz Arena.

It would be a disaster for him to be missing for the away game – he has proven to be a genuinely top-class full-back and is one of the best in Europe.
It would also mean bringing Alberto Moreno back in from the cold, or potentially getting James Milner to do a job in there again.
Up against one of Serge Gnabry, Franck Ribery or Kingsley Coman, Robertson will have a tough task tonight against Bayern, but the likes of Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum should be able to get across and help him out.
Along with his opposite full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, Robertson could be crucial to breaking Bayern’s defence down.
It would be a huge boost – regardless of whether Robertson will be available for the second leg – to take a lead to Germany.
