Liverpool fan left Anfield after Borussia Dortmund's third goal

Published 9 Comments

As Dejan Lovren headed home Liverpool's winning goal against German outfit Borussia Dortmund on Thursday night, Anfield went delirious with excitement. 

There's no doubt about it, the Reds' remarkable turnaround against Thomas Tuchel's side was one of the most incredible matches Merseyside has ever witnessed. 

Liverpool have a history of coming back from the dead - Istanbul, 2005 will never be forgotten - but not many gave them a chance when classy playmaker Marco Reus struck Dortmund's third goal of the evening.

The German international's strike meant Dortmund led by four goals to two on aggregate, leaving Jurgen Klopp's side with a mountain to climb. 

The Reds had to score three times and that is exactly what they did. Incredibly, in the space of 26 unbelievable final minutes, goals from Philippe Coutinho, Mamadou Sakho and Dejan Lovren changed the balance of the tie. From nowhere, Liverpool secured their place in the semi-finals of the competition.

Shocking decision 

It's safe to say, then, that every Liverpool supporter who entered Anfield departed the ground feeling very happy. Wrong. One fan opted to leave the stadium moments after Reus found the back of the net. 

Oh, yeah, the instinctive act will haunt him for years...

Here's how it played out on social media (we're sorry about the language):

Semi-final showdown 

Well, perhaps the Liverpool supporter will take comfort in knowing that he will be able to watch his side in the semi-final of the competition. 

Liverpool will have to overcome Villarreal to secure their place in the final of the competition after the draw was made in Switzerland on Friday. Another boost for the Reds is that the second-leg of the tie will be played on Merseyside. One thing is for sure, Liverpool fans won't be exiting early...

Liverpool v Borussia Dortmund - UEFA Europa League Quarter Final: Second Leg

Shakhtar Donetsk and Sevilla will meet in the other semi-final, with the games set to take place on April 28 and May 5.

But, after Liverpool's heroic display against Dortmund, they will now believe that they can win the tournament. 

Eliminating rivals Manchester United was quite the achievement for Klopp's side, but their two-legged win over Dortmund really was something special. There really should be no underestimating the Europa League for Liverpool, who can secure Champions League qualification for next season if they win the competition. With Klopp at the helm, anything appears to be possible. 

Will Liverpool go on to win the Europa League? Have your say below!
