The Reds will face Bayern in the Champions League Round of 16.
However, Liverpool have been handed a boost by the news Bayern will be without Muller, who is suspended for both legs.
The Germany international was sent off in the last round of the competition for a high challenge on Ajax defender Nicolas Tagliafico.
Muller was given his marching orders in the 3-3 draw and immediately apologised after the game.
“I would like to apologise to Nico Tagliafico for yesterday’s incident,” Muller wrote on Twitter.
“There was no intention [in the foul]. Get well.”
Niko Kovac had no sympathy for Muller after his kung fu kick, with the Bayern boss claiming it was a guaranteed red card.
He said: “The red card for Thomas was fair as well.
“He didn’t see the player but you have to be aware of your opponent coming at the ball at your back.”
