Gary Lineker and Peter Crouch react on Twitter to Liverpool's late win over Dortmund

Anfield Pitch

Liverpool completed a miraculous comeback to beat Borussia Dortmund.

Liverpool mounted a miraculous comeback to win a huge European game. Sound familiar?

There were shades of 2005 in Istanbul at Anfield this evening as the Reds came from three goals down on aggregate to knock Borussia Dortmund out of the Europa League.

They had appeared down and out after Marco Reus netted early in the second half to put Dortmund 3-1 up on the night, and 4-2 on aggregate after a 1-1 draw in the first leg.

This meant the Reds needed to score four on the night to progress, and not concede any more. An impossible task?

Liverpool had other ideas, with a 66th minute goal from Philippe Coutinho giving them hope, before Mamadou Sakho atoned for his earlier defensive naivety by scoring an equaliser on the night.

The Reds pushed and pushed for the goal they needed, before Dejan Lovren netted a last minute winner.

 

Match of the Day host Gary Lineker reacted in amazement to the goal, almost lost for words.

 

Former Liverpool striker Peter Crouch was also dumbfounded, but admitted he had a feeling the Reds would get a result.

 

They are now into the semi-finals of the Europa League, having knocked out the tournament favourites.
