Our match prediction:
All eyes will be on Signal-Iduna-Park when Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool take on each other in the Europa League quarter-finals, first leg. The Millionaires are on a five-game winning run in all competitions, but they do not want to stop now. The Bundesliga giants have been impressive under Thomas Tuchel this season and seeing that they outclassed the likes of Porto and Tottenham Hotspur in previous two rounds, we predict that the Germans will record their fifth consecutive win in the Europa League on Thursday evening. Liverpool have eliminated the likes of Augsburg and Manchester United in the knockout stages so far, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in the upcoming football match. Borussia Dortmund have been impressive at their Signal-Iduna-Park this season and, taking everything into account, Jurgen Klopp is unlikely to have a reason for celebration after the clash against his former club.
