FT: Dortmund (Hummels, 48 mins) 1-1 Liverpool (Origi, 36 mins)
Liverpool have succeeded where Tottenham Hotspur failed by avoiding defeat in Dortmund.
Considering how well Spurs were beaten (3-0) at Signal Iduna Park in the last round, this 1-1 draw should be celebrated as a fantastic result for the Reds, who led after 36 minutes thanks to Divock Origi.
Dortmund hit back early in the second half when Mats Hummels powered home from a corner kick.
Liverpool started this Europa League quarter-final as big underdogs.
However, with Origi’s away goal, the Reds will now start the second leg at Anfield close to even money to qualify for the last four.
Just don’t leave Hummels unmarked at Anfield…
