Can: We have confidence

Emre Can is hoping his knowledge of the Bundesliga can make a difference when Liverpool meet Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League quarter-final first-leg on Thursday.

The German international has followed the Bundesliga since moving to the Premier League in 2014 and knows Borussia Dortmund will provide a stern test when Jurgen Klopp takes his Liverpool side to the Westfalenstadion.

"I follow the Bundesliga so that’s why I know their team. I played a few times against Dortmund so I know they’re very strong," Can told Liverpoolfc.com. "They press well, they can play football, and they have a good striker in [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang - he can always score.

"Thomas Tuchel's team run a lot, I think. He likes when they run a lot, and they counter-attack - in Mainz it was the same - they have very good players who can play on the counter."

Liverpool defeated Manchester United en route to the quarter-final, while they have fared well in big games in the Premier League this season and Can believes that will stand to them when they face Borussia Dortmund.

"I think we’ve performed well in the big games against big teams, for example against [Manchester] City and Chelsea we’ve played very well," he stated.

"And that’s what we want to do on Thursday as well [though] it will be a different game to the Premier League.

"Of course, we have confidence and we played not bad in the last few games. That’s why we can go over to Dortmund with confidence and we will try to win the game."
