Semi-final draw 

The Reds will have to overcome La Liga outfit Villarreal to secure their place in the final of the competition, with the second-leg set to take place on Merseyside.

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

Liverpool can win it 

Following Liverpool's historic victory, winger James Milner has insisted that Liverpool can go on to win the competition.

As per the Liverpool Echo, Milner stated: “This will do a lot for us. It’s not easy to come back from that position against anyone but to do it against a team of their quality with the players they have...

“After the first game there were a few things said that Dortmund didn’t play well and if they did in the second leg they’d win the game.

“We wanted to show we didn’t play our best either and to beat them over two games is obviously a good achievement.

“I have said at times this year that I don’t think there is that belief there - that the boys don’t really believe how good they are. It is a young team and sometimes we struggle for consistency.

“But to beat a team like Dortmund and to come back the way we did and going this far in a major European competition is obviously massive.

“We got to the League Cup final and we’ve put ourselves in a position again. Hopefully we can get belief from this. If we can beat them we can beat anyone and hopefully we can now go on to win some silverware.

“It was the same when I was at City and we managed to win that first piece of silverware. You get that belief and hunger and that feeling that ‘hang on, we can go again’. Hopefully this result will kick us on to do that.”
