Our match prediction:
All eyes will be at Anfield when Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund square off against each other in the second leg of the Europa League quarter-finals. The two teams shared the spoils in the first leg (1-1), but the Millionaires are still regarded as favourites to make it to the next round. Thomas Tuchel rested several first-team regulars in Sunday’s Ruhr derby against Schalke (2-2), but taking into account that the German tactician is going to field the best possible side against Jurgen Klopp’s troops in Thursday’s football game, we predict that the visitors will emerge triumphant in the Enfield showdown. Borussia Dortmund have been producing thrilling displays in all competitions this season and, taking everything into account, away win appears on the cards. You should bear in mind that Liverpool recorded only one win in previous five matches in all competitions, with the team beating Stoke City in the Premier League (4-1) at the weekend.

Founded back in 1982, Liverpool are one of England’s and world’s most famous clubs. The Reds hold a high-profile rivalry with Everton and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the Merseyside derby. The Reds welcome their opponents at Anfield and it has to be noted that they have already won 18 first division trophies. Liverpool were on the verge of lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, but Steven Gerrard slipped in the decider against Chelsea and left the Reds without a title.
