Second leg 

But will Liverpool progress? At this stage, they have only done half the job and can't rest on their laurels in pursuit of claiming a spot in the semi-final of the competition. 

The Reds may well have scored that all important away goal in Germany, but the game is still very much in the balance.

Klopp knows that only too well and has insisted that his former club are still in a good position ahead of the clash on Merseyside. As per Liverpool's official website, the German coach stated: "We saw the game – it’s still 50-50. Dortmund don’t care too much where they play and where they score goals. Of course they’re still in a very good position. But I think it was very important for us to show this Liverpool face.

"A lot of people thought a lot of things about our probable or possible performance, and maybe they are a little bit surprised. I’m really happy with the performance. The away goal is good and much better than a 0-0, 100 per cent better.

"But we have to play at our best in the rematch to go through. Nothing is decided. That’s good for all supporters and all people who love football; it will be another really tight clash and I’m looking forward to it."

Who will secure a place in the semi-final of the competition: Liverpool or Dortmund? Have your say below!
