Liverpool produced a stunning comeback to beat Borussia Dortmund 4-3 and progress to the Europa League semi-finals on a memorable night at Anfield.
Liverpool were stunned in the first half when a Dortmund counter attack found Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who’s volley was parried by Simon Mignolet but only into the path of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who passed the ball in to put the away side 1-0 ahead.'

Only five minutes later, Dortmund scored a second when Aubameyang was played through by Marco Reus, and the Gabon international fired a sensational strike into the top corner to put his side 2-0 ahead.
With Jurgen Klopp’s side needing to score three goals, they grew into the game and created a number of chances, but failed to test Roman Weidenfeller.
Only three minutes into the second half Divock Origi was played through on goal and poked the ball home to pull one back for the Reds. With Liverpool looking to be finding their way back into the game, another devestating Dortmund attack saw Reus played through in behind Nathaniel Clyne, and the German international slotted home to put his side 3-1 ahead.
With the game looking out of sight for Liverpool, Philippe Coutinho pulled one back with a stunning strike from the edge of the area. Then from a James Milner cross, defender Mamadou Sakho headed in to level the scores at 3-3 and send Anfield into eruption.
In the dying minutes of the game, Dejan Lovren converted a header at the back post to clinch the winner and see Liverpool come out 4-3 winners on the night, sealing a place in the semi-finals.
