Now, Jurgen is a god in Dortmund having led them to back-to-back Bundesliga titles ahead of their fierce rivals Bayern Munich in 2011 and 2012. He took up the vacant manager’s post at Liverpool in 2015 after leaving the German giants, and isn’t football funny how he was drawn against his former club just 5 months later?
But that’s the way it’s happened, after Liverpool saw off their Premier League rivals Manchester United in the previous round 3-1 on aggregate.Dortmund have already beaten English opposition in the shape of Tottenham Hotspur in their previous round game, so they’ll know exactly how to handle the fast-paced and aggressive English-style.
Liverpool will be hoping their game-changers, Brazilian genius Philippe Coutinho and striker Daniel Sturridge will be on the ball to score them a vital away goal in the first leg. However. Dortmund has their own weapons of mass destruction in the form of Marco Reus and Patrick Aubameyang
Dortmund are challenging Bayern at the top of the Bundesliga, they’re a frightening threat when they’re going all-out attack and Liverpool’s leaky defense will have to be at its best if they are to get anything from this game.
It’s difficult to imagine Liverpool getting through this over two legs, however if anyone knows what Dortmund’s weaknesses are it’ll be their former manager, Jurgen.
