Two of the favourites for the Europa League go head-to-head in the quarter-final second leg of the competition on Thursday night.
Liverpool v Dortmund
UEFA Europa League Quarter-Final 2nd Leg
Live on BT Sport Europe
This clash pits Europa League favourites Dortmund against the Premier League’s great unpredictable Liverpool. The first leg finished 1-1 after a highly-entertaining end-to-end encounter, so expect the same from this clash.
Liverpool warmed up for this clash with a 4-1 home mauling of Stoke in the Premier League on Sunday, with Divock Origi scoring a brace and goals from Alberto Moreno and Daniel Sturridge securing a comfortable victory.
That win was the Reds only victory in their last five games in all competitions, but three of those games have finished in draws. Jurgen Klopp’s men are odds of 21/10 at Bet365 to record a victory in this clash.
Belgian striker Divock Origi will be looking to start this game following his impressive showing off the bench against Stoke and is odds of 28/11 with 888 Sport to find the net at any time during this clash.
Dortmund have now drawn consecutive games, having followed up the draw with Liverpool with a 2-2 draw at Schalke at the weekend. BVB have been prolific in front of goal at home and abroad this season.
Striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been particularly prolific and the Gabon international is odds of 6/1 with 888 Sport to open the scoring.
The German side have lost just one of their last 11 away games in the Europa League and have won three out of their last four on their travels in Europe. Their last away game in Europe saw a 2-1 victory at Premier League title chasers Tottenham.
Dortmund are a dangerous opponent for the Premier League side and are favourites to win this game at odds of 17/11 with 888 Sport to win this clash.
For me this game may just follow the pattern of the first leg and finished in an entertaining draw, which you can back at odds of 13/5 with BetVictor.
