We have reached the knockout stages in the Europa League and things are starting to get intense as Liverpool take on Borussia Dortmund in what should be an interesting contest. This will be an exciting game for Liverpool manager Klopp as this game will see him play his former team and I am expecting that to give him an edge come match day.
Liverpool have been a bit of a hit and miss team this season and that has played a hige role in them not coming close to the top 4 spots. This team has a lot of potential and I think if they play their best game, they have what it takes to win the Europa League. This is by far the best chance Liverpool have of making Europe next season and I think they will put in a lot of resources into this game.
Borussia Dortmund on the other hand will also feel that they can win the domestic league and a spot in the Champions League is all but confirmed for them. I am pretty sure this will not have the most priority but the Dortmund team seems like a side that wants to win every game they play. They will also be at home so I think that it will be tough for Liverpool to beat them but I also think that it is going to be tough for Dortmund to win either.
All in all I am expecting a draw and I think that betting on it has good enough value. This game will be closely contested and although Dortmund are favorites, I think the fact that Liverpool need the Europa League more will make it into a draw. Also Klopp as the Liverpool manager will give them an edge. I think this should be a great game and I am looking forward to watching it.
