Divock Origi gave Liverpool a surprise 1-0 lead when he opened the scoring against Dortmund in the Europa League Quarterfinals. His goal in the 36th minute is a disappointing early concession of an away goal for Thomas Tuchel's men in Jurgen Klopp's return to Germany.

The buildup was simple as Alberto Moreno lofted a ball forward towards James Milner's head. Milner obliged and flicked it on and into space for Origi. The Belgian international beat Lukasz Piszczek and Sven Bender to the ball and fired low past Weidenfeller and inside the post.

Dortmund have not been at their best so far in this game. Origi's goal followed a few nervous moments for the BVB defenders in the first half. If not for a few last-ditch blocks from Liverpool defenders, the home side would have found an equalizer in the first half.
