Europa League: Dortmund vs Liverpool

Dortmund vs Liverpool Betting Tip and Predictions. In the first leg of the Quarter-finals in the UEFA Europa League, Borussia Dortmund host Liverpool at Westfalenstadion. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for the match between Dortmund vs Liverpool.


Dortmund play very good this season in Europe and in their domestic league. In Bundesliga they are standing at the second position with 5 points less than Bayern Munich and they are still in a race for the title. Their performance in Europa League this season is great and they are the main favorite to win this competition. After Borussia Dortmund have qualified in the knock-out phase, they had two very tough opponents, but they have been very successful. First, they eliminated Porto, beating them in both matches. After that, they smashed Tottenham with 5-1 aggregate. Without any doubt, they are favorites to qualify in the Semi-finals and they want to make good result in the first leg upfront their supporters. Interesting fact is that they will play against team which lead their ex-coach Jürgen Klopp. “Anything other than warm welcome for Klopp would be a big surprise. He deserves it. He did a great job here.” – said Thomas Tuchel, Dortmund coach.

Liverpool play solid this season and it’s questionable are they capable to reach the Top 5 in Premier League and play in some of the European competition. They are standing at the 9th position and have a small chances to reach the place which leads in Europe next season. Another way to qualify in the UEFA Champions League and play in that competition next season is to win the trophy in Europa League. They recent performance is not at the high level, they are without win in their last three matches in all competitions, so the match against Dortmund maybe doesn’t come in the right moment. Their defence is not in the great – in the last three matches they conceded on each at least one goal. On the other side, their attack is very good and they could be very dangerous for home side.
