We’re down to the final eight in the Europa League and Liverpool will have to overcome the bookmakers favourites Borussia Dortmund to reach the semi-finals.

Dortmund are 13/8 favourites with Bet365 to lift the trophy, while Liverpool can be backed at 7/1 with Sky BetPaddy Power and Ladbrokes.

Jurgen Klopp’s former club are also a best price of just 4/9 with William Hill ‘to qualify’ for the semi’s, with Liverpool available at 9/4 with Sky Bet.

As far as this 90 minutes is concerned, Dortmund look a tad too short at a best price of just 4/7 with Betfred, while Liverpool are a huge 6/1 with Bet365.

Dortmund demolished Spurs in the last round – but unlike Tottenham, you can be sure that Klopp will play a full strength Liverpool side, with lifting this trophy their only realistic hope of Champions League football next season.

Domestically, Dortmund are unbeaten in their last 11 games (W9, D2) – during which time they have conceded just five league goals and scored 20.

But Liverpool have scored 20 goals in their last 10 away league games – more than any other side during the same period – although they have conceded 18.

The Reds are better set up to play counter attacking football, which suits their quick passing style – with Phillipe Coutinho having scored 7 league away goals.

So, the first recommendation here is to back Over 2.5 Goals at best odds of 3/4.

We’ll also suggest perming some high scoring Correct Score bets – let’s go for 3-1 and 3-2 at 12/1 and 28/1 respectively with BetVictor, plus the reverse scores – 1-3 is a huge 66/1 with Paddy Power and the 2-3 Liverpool win 60/1 with BetVictor.

Finally, we recommend backing Coutinho each-way to score the first goal at 12/1 with Paddy Power (1/3 odds for the ‘place’ – if he scores any of the first 5 goals).
