Live on BT Sport Europe / BT Sport Europe HD
Dortmund have been experiencing a stellar campaign at both home and in Europe. Thomas Tuchel’s side are second in the Bundesliga and favourites to win this competition. BVB have won their last four games in the Europa League and saw German side Augsburg the round of 16.
Not only have the German side won their last four games in this competition, but are unbeaten in their last 20 games in all competitions, recording 18 wins in the process. The German side can be backed for victory at odds of 4/7 with Betfred.
Tuchel’s side will look to highly-rated striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to provide the goals to see them through. The Gabon international has scored 36 goals this season in all competitions. The striker can backed at odds of 7/2 with Paddy Power to open the scoring in this clash.
Liverpool made it through the last eight of this competition with a 3-1 aggregate victory over Premier League rivals Manchester United. The Reds have not won in their last three games in all competitions.
Former-Dortmund boss Klopp will be hoping his side can get back to winning ways against his old club, but it will be difficult for the men from Merseyside to win this clash. The Reds are odds of 6/1 with Bet365 to record a win at Signal Iduna Park.
Brazilian international playmaker Philippe Coutinho has been in good form of late and has found the net in consecutive games. The former-Inter star is available at odds of 9/2 at Totesport.
If you believe that these two teams cannot be separated, then the draw can be backed at odds of 17/5 with BetVictor.
I can see Dortmund winning this game and there being goals, so the bet to go for is a home win with over 2.5 goals scored which is available at odds of 5/4 with Ladbrokes.
