Liverpool: Fans absolutely loved Borussia Dortmund’s banter with Barcelona

Borussia Dortmund’s official English language Twitter channel @BlackYellow subsequently took the opportunity to remind Barcelona of a memorable moment from last season’s Champions League.

When the La Liga champions lost 4-0 to Liverpool at Anfield in the 2018/19 semi-finals, the fourth goal came from a quickly-taken corner by Trent Alexander-Arnold which was finished to the net by Divock Origi. [via Liverpool FC on YouTube]

That goal completed a remarkable comeback from Liverpool, who had been beaten 3-0 in the first leg at Camp Nou before overturning that deficit in dramatic style at Anfield a week later, and the Reds would go on to lift the Champions League trophy after defeating Tottenham 2-0 in the final in Madrid.

Borussia Dortmund, though, have also been on the end of a substantial Liverpool comeback in European competition.

In the 2016 Europa League quarter-finals, the teams drew 1-1 in Germany before Dortmund took a 3-1 lead at Anfield.

Liverpool managed to retrieve the deficit and win the game 4-3 thanks to a stoppage time Dejan Lovren header, having faced an away goals exit before that intervention. [via BBC]

These Liverpool fans on Twitter took great pleasure in Borussia Dortmund’s humorous tweet:
