Liverpool visit Borussia Dortmund this evening and the teams have been announced.

Borussia Dortmund host Liverpool in the first leg of an intriguing Europa League quarter final.

The backdrop to the game focuses on Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, who is returning to his former club for the first time, with Thomas Tuchel in the opposition dugout.

Dortmund are in formidable form after beating Tottenham 5-1 on aggregate over two legs in the last 16, with the tie done after the first game in which they won 3-0.

Match winners that night were top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Marco Reus, two players who Liverpool will have their work cut out to try and stop this evening.

Liverpool qualified for the last eight by knocking out rivals Manchester United over two legs.

As well as etching their name on the trophy, the reward for the winners of this year's competition is a place in next season's Champions League, and this is now Liverpool's only path to the competition after falling off the pace in the Premier League.
