Hi, football fans! After the amazing spanish derby in the Champions League, last night we became witnesses of another dramatic match when Liverpool stun Borussia Dortmund with a thrilling comeback to make it Liverpool 4-3 Dortmund (agg: 5-4). The Reds secured a stunning comeback victory to secure safe passage into the semi-finals on a night to remember at Anfield. Liverpool completed one of the most startling comebacks in UEFA Europa League history to defeat Borussia Dortmund and book their place in Friday's semi-finals draw. Jürgen Klopp's side scored three second half goals to hand the German coach a 5-4 aggregate victory against his former club with Dejan Lovren crashing in a late header in front of the Kop on a famous night at Anfield. Unperturbed by the heated atmosphere, Dortmund started brightly, showing they meant business from the off. After the hosts lost possession too high in the fifth minute, Henrikh Mkhitaryan started and finished an outstanding counterattack for the opening goal. BVB were two goals to the good four minutes later, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang supplying an excellent finish to Marco Reus's defence-splitting pass. With a mountain to climb, Liverpool slowly improved, and Adam Lallana could have cut the deficit had he not miscued. Shortly after the interval Liverpool did pull a goal back, with Divock Origi latching onto Emre Can's through-ball and finishing calmly.

Hope at Anfield was restored, but Reus's fine finish from Mats Hummels's pass sent the travelling fans into raptures once more. Undeterred, Liverpool continued to attack and again cut the deficit, Philippe Coutinho's trademark strike from distance leaving Roman Weidenfeller no chance. Mamadou Sakho found the net late on, setting up a climactic end to a unpredictable evening. Lovren then etched his name into Anfield folklore with a winner in added time to give Liverpool yet another famous comeback victory. Honestly - a game like this can be normally played in the Champions League - all this potential and great football! I wish you nice Friday and see you soon!
