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.
