Divock Origi is the name on the lips of Liverpool fans after he gave the Merseysiders a 1-0 lead in the 36th minute of the first half of this Europa League Quarterfinal first leg. The Belgian international pounced on a long ball, that was cleverly flicked on by James Milner, and beat a BVB defense that had a few nervous moments in the first half.

Dortmund have thus far not been at their best like they were in the last round against Tottenham. Thomas Tuchel's men did manage four shots on target in the first half. If not for a few last-ditch blocks from Mamadou Sakho and Dejan Lovren BVB could've at least had an equalizer.

Lovren was involved in a moment of controversy when his attempted header on the ball in the box ended up making more contact with Weidenfeller than with the ball. Luckily Roman was okay after a few minutes of treatment.

What are your predictions for the second half? Surely we can put one past Simon Mignolet?
