Full time: Borussia Dortmund 1-1 Liverpool

Liverpool take an away goal and a credible performance back to Anfield for the second leg after holding favourites Borussia Dortmund in the first leg of this quarter final. Divock Origi opened the scoring before Mats Hummels levelled in an entertaining first hour, before the game slowed towards the end. Dortmund will be disappointed with the result but will fancy they can score next week, meaning this tie is far from over.

Well that is all we have time for on this Europa League live text. We will be back next week with he second legs from the Champions League and this competition but until then, goodbye.

Two added minutes to be played in Dortmund. Will we have a late winner?

Sturridge straight into the action and he weaves his way through a number of Dortmund tackles but is eventually stopped in his tracks. Entering the closing minutes.

Still the possession is all with Dortmund but Liverpool are riding out this bout of pressure with Mignolet not being called into action. Daniel Sturridge on for Divock Origi in another straight change for Liverpool.

Alberto Moreno unnecessarily dives in two footed on new man Pulisic in the corner. Lucky to escape with a ticking off from the referee. Mignolet into the action for the first time for a while, pushing away Castro's cross.

Roberto Firmino back for Liverpool as he comes on for Adam Lallana. Liverpool not settling for the draw yet.

Two changes for Dortmund as we enter the final quarter of an hour. Bender off for Sokratis and Pulisic on for Aubameyang, which is a slight surprise.

James Milner playing on the edge of his own penalty area tells you everything you need to know about the level of Dortmund pressure at the moment. It is not particularly probing from the home team but with Liverpool being starved of the ball it is pushing the Merseysiders further back. Twenty minutes left in Dortmund.

Dortmund enjoying plenty of the ball since levelling the tie, happy to be patient in pursuit of taking the lead for the first time. Liverpool will probably be content so far, despite the manner in which they lost their half time advantage.

Liverpool don't rest of their laurels and they are very nearly back in front for a second time with a succession of chances. Weidenfeller makes three saves, the first brilliantly from Coutinho with the ball seemingly past him before he kept out Clyne from range and then Coutinho again from close range. Stunning spell for the visitors but Weidenfeller was at his very best.

Goal: Borussia Dortmund 1-1 Liverpool (Mats Hummels)

Dortmund level just two-and-a-half minutes into the second half. Mkhitaryan swings across into the box from a short corner and Hummels arrives untracked, unmarked and on the run buries a header past Mignolet.

Changes for both sides ahead of the second half. Joe Allen on for Jordan Henderson and Nuri Sahin on for Erik Burm. Game back under way.

Half time: Borussia Dortmund 0-1 Liverpool

Entertaining half from Germany and Liverpool have a surprise lead at the break. Divock Origi justifies his selection ahead of Daniel Sturridge by scoring the only goal. Dortmund have had plenty of chances however, with Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang and Reus all involved. Jurgen Klopp currently making himself very unpopular on his return to Dortmund.

Liverpool almost two up right on the brink of half time. Divock Origi is played through by Moreno but Weidenfeller gets out quickly and makes a smart save.

More last ditch defending from Liverpool keeps their lead intact. Mkhitaryan is really ticking tonight and he feeds Aubameyang whose goal bound shot is blocked behind by Lovren.

Piszczek wriggles away from the challenges on the edge of the Liverpool box but once against Dortmund are forced to take an effort on from outside the box and Mignolet makes no mistake.

Four added minutes in Dortmund. The home side coming back into the game somewhat but Klopp will be delighted with his side's away goal.

Bit of a spell for Liverpool as Clyne almost gets a shot away in the box before Milner has an effort from outside the box blocked. Dortmund rattled but the shock goal from Origi.

Goal: Borussia Dortmund 0-1 Liverpool (Divock Origi)

Jurgen Klopp beats his chest and that is because Liverpool are ahead! Divock Origi breaks in behind and though he is under pressure from Bender he swivels and shoots in the same movement and via a deflection the ball finds the corner. What a goal in the context of the tie.

Dortmund having a bit more joy now and Mkhitaryan advances behind the Liverpool midfield and as the defence backs off his shoots left-footed by wide of Mignolet's goal.

It is the Gabon forward again giving Liverpool problems, pulling away from the back four but his cross can't find Reus in the middle

Aubameyang takes aim from a 30-yard free-kick and via a deflection it has Mignolet scrambling across his goal but the ball goes behind for a corner.

Castro crunches into Milner on the half-way line and Liverpool are awarded a yellow card. Liverpool have held their own in this opening half an hour and Dortmund look unsettled by their pressing game.

That is as good a chance as Liverpool will get all night. Coutinho swings in a free-kick from the right and Lovren gets goal-side but heads down into the floor and Weidenfeller, though clattered into by two Reds players, takes the loose ball. Brilliant chance, wasted by the visitors.

Have to wonder how Dortmund are not ahead. Schmelzer gets in behind and as Mignolet commits himself the ball is pulled back to Mkhitaryan and it takes a last ditch block from Sakho to prevent the hosts taking the lead.

James Milner gives away a soft free-kick on the left. The delivery is poor but it comes out to Reus, but he drags his effort wide.

First threat from Dortmund. Clyne loses the ball and allows Durm to raid forward. His pass is into the area but Aubameyang can't bring it under his spell and Mignolet comes out to collect.

Early yellow card for another Liverpool individual returning to Germany today, Emre Can who cuts down Reus in his stride. The free-kick comes to nothing and Liverpool enjoying a bit more of the ball now.

James Milner thread a ball through towards Coutinho and though it beats the Dortmund defence, it is over-hit and goes out for a goal kick. Liverpool being starved of possession.

Dortmund dominating possession early on and their first foray into the Liverpool box is cut short by a high foot as Mkhitaryan looked to get past Nathaniel Clyne. Now Simon Mignolet sets hearts racing, turning past Aubameyang inside his own penalty area.

Under way in Germany.

Both sets of players are out and we're almost ready to go in Germany. Can Jurgen Klopp upset his former club on his big return? Dortmund represent a daunting test tonight. Updates on the way.

The moment has really got to the BT Sport presenters in Germany, each of whom are bleary eyed to say the least. It is a stunning atmosphere in Dortmund and it is a really daunting evening ahead for a Liverpool side are very much a work in progress. The players are on their way.

Quite a moment at Westfalenstadion as both sets of supporters engage in singing You'll Never Walk Alone. Not sure I can remember any game where the song of the away side is played over the PA. Fabulous moment.

Jurgen Klopp has spent most of the pre-match warm-up watching the Borussia Dortmund, to pick up any last minute tips and to check first hand whether the intensity which defined them during his tenure has relented. Having seen the outplay Tottenham a few weeks ago, I can assure him that it has not.

Liverpool are languishing down in ninth in the Premier League table and out of contention for a European place, meaning the Europa League is the only route remaining for Jurgen Klopp's side to return to the continent's premier club competition; the Champions League. The Reds have not exactly been impressive in their route to this stage and they need their best performance under Klopp for quite a while if they are are to bypass his former club.

Your attention may, understandably, be drawn to the Masters throughout the next couple of evenings but I promise you we have a real snorter on our hands tonight. Dortmund are deservedly the favourites for this competition after sweeping side Tottenham in the last round. They take on their former manager Jurgen Klopp who though is yet to sprinkle his fairy dust on Liverpool since he took over knows all there is to know about how Thomas Tuchel will set his team up tonight, having done much the same during his spell in charge. Can Klopp return to haunt his former side? Give The Masters the night off if I were you, it's only round one.

Dortmund make three changes from their last Europa League outing at Tottenham. Sven Bender, Mats Hummels and Erik Durm are back in place of Matthias Ginter, Neven Subotić and Sokratis Papastathopoulos.

Just one change for Liverpool from the draw with Tottenham as Daniel Sturridge is replaced by Divock Origi. Roberto Firmino returns to the squad after two games out.

Team news:

Borussia Dortmund: Weidenfeller, Piszczek, Bender, Hummels, Schmelzer, Castro, Weigl, Durm, Mkhitaryan, Reus, Aubameyang

Team news:

Liverpool: Mignolet, Clyne, Lovren, Sakho, Moreno, Henderson, Can, Milner, Lallana, Coutinho, Origi.

Subs: Ward, Toure, Smith, Allen, Ibe, Firmino, Sturridge.

We're expecting team news any minute now but until then, how do we expect both sides to line-up?

Ilkay Gundogan is a doubt with a foot problem which has kept him out for a month, but he did train ahead of the game alongside Mats Hummels - who is expected to feature.

Roberto Firmino travelled to Germany after missing the last two games with a hamstring injury. Christain Benteke is out, as is long-term absentees Joe Gomez and Danny Ings.

The prodigal son Jurgen Klopp returns to Borussia Dortmund tonight as Liverpool attempt to keep hopes of winning silverware, and qualifying for the Champions League, alive against the tournament favourites. Klopp won two Bundesliga titles and reach the 2012 Champions League final with the German giants and is back at the Westfalenstadion for the first time in the opposition dug-out, since he left at the end of last season. Thomas Tuchel is in the hotseat now and his side are a dangerous proposition for the Reds. Teams news and updates ahead of the 8:05pm kick-off on the way.
