Mats Hummels equalizes against Liverpool

The Captain rights the ship!!!!

Liverpool took a surprising lead into halftime, but shortly after the break Mats Hummels got Dortmund back into it. The big German defender scored his fourth career European goal after the ball was played into him off the short corner from Henrikh Mkhitaryan. It was the BVB captain's third goal of the season in all competitions, having previously notched two in the Bundesliga.

Just as you would expect, Hummels jumped higher than Adam Lallana in the box. He powered the header past Simon Mignolet who got a hand to the ball but couldn't keep it out.

The goal levels things on aggregate, but Liverpool technically still lead via their away goal. Hopefully Hummels' equalizer will put some more of that Dortmund swagger we expect back into Thomas Tuchel's side.

What do you think? Will BVB tick on from here?
