With the Anfield crowd and Klopp’s know-how, we reckon you should bet on Liverpool to beat Dortmund and reach the Europa League semi-finals. Here’s why!

1. The Anfield Crowd

  • Liverpool to win @          3.00 (2/1)
  • Dortmund to win @          2.40 (7/5)

Sure, Dortmund are used to playing at the noisy Westfalenstadion, with its famous “Yellow Wall”, but when it comes to history, it’s hard to beat Anfield. The Reds have had many glorious European victories at home and they’ve beaten the best there including both Barcelona and Real Madrid! The roar from the Kop will spur Liverpool on, especially if the home side get a good start.

2. Jurgen Klopp.

The charming German is an expert motivator and should be at his best on an occasion like this. He knows Dortmund, and most of the players, inside out. Liverpool stopped the Germans dominating the first leg, and knowing Jurgen he’ll have a plan up his sleeve this time.

3. Liverpool are peaking at the right time

  • Liverpool to qualify @       2.00 (1/1))
  • Dortmund to qualify @      1.80 (4/5)

If you don’t bet on sports in the UK, you’d be surprised by Liverpool’s league position of 8th. On Sunday they easily beat Stoke 4-1, but they’d actually started the afternoon behind the Potters in the table. Now, though, they are playing like a Champions League side. With Sturridge fit and Origi developing fast, they look more threatening up front than at any time since Luis Suarez left.

4. Liverpool don’t actually need to win

The tie is currently level at 1-1, but a 0-0 draw would see Liverpool win the tie on away goals. With top-class players like Reus and Aubameyang it’s likely Dortmund will score, but it certainly puts the pressure on the away team. We still think you should bet on Liverpool to beat Dortmund, but they don’t have to do that to qualify!

5. Bet365 Sportsbook have really great odds

Whether you bet on Liverpool to win on the night, or just for them to qualify for the semi-finals, Bet365 Sportsbook have great odds. While you’re there, the also have odds for who will win the entire competition. If Liverpool win suddenly become favourites, so grab odds of 5.00 (4/1) while you can!

Best Bet: Correct score Liverpool 2-1 Dortmund @ 10.00 (11/1) @ Bet365 Sportsbook
