Liverpool suffered their first home defeat in a year Tuesday at the hands of Inter Milan, but the Reds won the Champions League knockout stage tie 2-1 on aggregate, while Bayern Munich rolled 7-1 over RB Salzburg to prevail 8-2.
Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic kept a clean sheet, admittedly with plenty of help from the woodwork, which denied Joel Matip at the half-hour mark and Mohamed Salah on two occasions in the second half.
And the visitors were poised to challenge for the tie after Lautaro Martinez halved the deficit with an impressive goal in the 61st minute.
Two minutes later, however, Alexis Sanchez picked up a second yellow card and with 10 men, Inter struggled to create chances.
Bayern, after managing only a 1-1 draw with the Red Bulls in Salzburg, exploded for seven goals at the Allianz Arena in Munich, including three from Robert Lewandowski.
