Borussia Dortmund will face Liverpool in the Europa League quarter-final clash. They sealed a place in the last eight of the competition after defeating Tottenham Hotspur. Former Reds midfielder Jan Molby has warned Jurgen Klopp's side to avoid what the north London club did when they visited Signal Iduna Park for the first leg of the last 16 tie.
Mauricio Pochettino saw his side suffer a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Dortmund during their trip to Germany in the first leg. Tottenham had an uphill task in the second leg, which they eventually lost 2-1 at White Hart Lane. On the other hand, Liverpool eliminated Manchester United to progress further in the Europe's elite club competition.
Liverpool's Europa League clash will see Klopp return to Dortmund for the first time since he left his former club. The return leg will be played at Anfield and Molby believes the current manager of the Merseyside club will be "desperate" to knock the Bundesliga club out of the competition.
"The crucial thing of course is that the second leg will be at Anfield so Liverpool will want to make sure they can avoid a Spurs and come back with all to play for," Molby told the Liverpool Echo.
"Of course there's no chance Liverpool will field a weakened team - the Manchester United game was special and one you didn't want to lose, but he's flat out for this tournament.
"Dortmund are probably a slightly better team than Liverpool at the moment - and usually your best chance in beating a better team is in a one-off game rather than over two legs - but in football you never know.
"I think the fact he will know Dortmund's strengths and weaknesses will be really valuable for Liverpool in the tie. Yes of course they know about how he likes to work too but overall I think it's a positive for the Reds.
"Regardless of the result, Klopp will always be able to say that the Dortmund team is essentially the one he built."
"But he will be desperate to win this game. There is nothing worse than going back to your old team and being beaten. He'll be well fired up for this and he'll have the team as ready as they can be."
