Liverpool have been drawn to face Borussia Dortmund in the quarter-finals of the Europa League.

Reds' manager Jurgen Klopp will face off against the side he took to the final of the Champions League in 2013 in the pick of the last-eight fixtures.

Dortmund, conquerors of Tottenham in the Round of 16. were also champions of Germany under Klopp in 2011 and 2012.

Liverpool travel to the Westfalenstadion, where they beat Alaves 5-4 to win the 2001 Uefa Cup, in the first leg on Thursday 7 April, with the return leg at Anfield on Thursday 14 April.

Before the draw, Klopp had said he wanted to avoid "the strongest team left in the competition" until the final.

Liverpool made it through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League after securing a 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford in the Round of 16 second leg tie, to progress 3-1 on aggregate.

Athletic Bilbao will meet holders Sevilla for the first time in Europe, while the other Spanish side Villarreal face Sparta Prague and 2011 Europa League finalists Braga face Shakhtar Donetsk.
