Liverpool have been pitted against Jurgen Klopp‘s former club Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League quarter-finals, in what is a mouthwatering tie.
The Reds drew 1-1 against Man United at Old Trafford on Thursday, ensuring the Reds qualified for the last-eight of the competition.
Philippe Coutinho‘s wonderful solo effort cancelled out Anthony Martial’s opener from the penalty spot, and the visitors saw the game out with relative ease in the end.
Liverpool have been drawn against Dortmund in the quarters, which promises to be a huge couple of matches. The Klopp factor makes it even more special.
The other three fixtures see Sporting Braga against Shakhtar Donetsk, Villarreal face Sparta Prague and an all-Spanish tie involving Athletic Bilbao and Sevilla.
Here is how social media reacted to the Reds’ Europa League draw:

#LFC fans can't complain about drawing #Dortmund in UEFA cup. Not after having such an easy draw in last round.

What a draw. I've always said the Europa League was class.

At least the 2nd leg is at Anfield. Just have to make sure we're still in the game.
