The Europa League draw brought with it a magical tie that is arguably more exciting than every Champions League tie as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp got pitted against his former club Borussia Dortmund.
The German is a Dortmund legend and when Liverpool and Spurs cruised to wins against Man United and Spurs respectively, there was always going to be speculation of what it would be like for a return to the Westfalenstadion less than a year after leaving.
Klopp seemed pretty wary of the threat Dortmund pose even before the two were drawn against each other.

Then, of course, there were the typical reaction tweets to what is surely going to be one of the most highly anticipated ties of the year.
"Boom," indeed, Mr. Klopp.
Klopp's love for Liverpool before he joined the Reds has not gone unnoticed.
The man is under no illusion as to how strong his former side are, as their ruthless dismissal of Tottenham showed.
