14 Apr 21:21
Barely time to equalise and Dortmund has their second. This time it's Aubameyang who strikes his effort sweetly pass Mignolet. Great build-up as Reus steals the ball in midfield and runs past Clyne, Firmino and quickly gets his through ball past Lovren and Sakho. That's 37 goals for Aubameyang.
14 Apr 21:19
14 Apr 21:17
It's Mkhitaryan who beats Mignolet after Aubameyang's effort is brilliantly saved by the keeper. However, Liverpool's defensive unit seems to be in shambles. No communication between Sakho and Lovren.

  • Liverpool are sticking with Divock Origi up front after the Belgian netted a crucial away goal in the first leg as well as grabbing a brace over the weekend against Stoke. Daniel Sturridge was also on target at the weekend but he will start on the bench for Liverpool tonight, youngster Ojo has earned himself a place among the substitutes tonight after a promising performance at the Britannia on Sunday.

  • Borussia Dortmund arrive in Liverpool unbeaten in 2016 and despite conceding an away goal in the 1-1 draw in the first leg Dortmund will still start this game as the favourites in many people's eyes. Ilkay Gundogan will start on the bench after his return from injury however this Dortmund side is far from short on firepower.

  • The team sheets are in and here is how they will line up: Liverpool starting line-up (4-2-3-1): Mignolet; Clyne, Lovren, Sakho, Moreno; Milner, Can; Lallana, Firmino, Coutinho; Origi.
