Roman Weidenfeller is actually Borussia Dortmund’s backup stopper, but in the Europa League, Thomas Tuchel selects the veteran ahead of Swiss stopper Roman Burki, and the German repaid his manager’s faith exceptionally in the second half last night.
With the match poised at 1-1, Weidenfeller kept out three Liverpool efforts in quick succession – two from Coutinho and one from Clyne – to stop us scoring a second away goal.
If one of these would’ve gone in, we’d have been up 2-1 with 30 minutes left, a terrific position to be at one of the trickiest away venues in Europe.
Still, we’d have taken 1-1 at the start of the evening, and now have a solid platform we can build on at Anfield next week.
