14 April 2016. The date Anfield played stage to one of the great European nights of modern times as Dejan Lovren produced an injury time winner to give Liverpool an incredible 4-3 win over Borussia Dortmund.
A game that Reds fans will never forget, a game that will go down in this club’s history and a game that poses as a constant reminder of why this special club needs to be competing with Europe’s elite once again.
There is nothing quite like a European night under the Anfield lights with the Kop in full voice and Liverpool sending the fans on an emotional roller-coaster. Reds need no reminder of how their team pulled off yet another remarkable comeback. Daniel Sturridge’s intelligent run, James Milner’s perfect cross, Lovern’s towering header and the subsequent scenes of jubilation live long in the memory.
It was kind of resilient and fearless display that defined everything we expected a Jurgen Klopp-led Liverpool to produce when the German first arrived on Merseyside. It set the tone for what many believe will be a special period for this club.
A year later to the day, supporters have taken to social media to reflect on what was a truly special occasion…
Can’t believe it’s been a year since that Dortmund game, honestly the best match I’ve witnessed in person. #LFC

That Dortmund game last season will stay with me forever, that Lovren goal sent me sailing about 7 rows down down the main stand

Can’t believe it’s a year since the Dortmund game. Special night. Special fans. A great game of football. Hugging my big son at the end.

For as long as I live I don’t think any football game will top that Dortmund game a year ago today, what a special occasion that was
