Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller then denied Origi one-on-one.

Tangles Hummels headed in an equalizer and the has squeezed looking for a victor, yet Liverpool kept them under control.

You'll Never Walk Alone version 'a wow minute'

At last it was a reasonable result as Dortmund, top picks to win the Europa League, overwhelmed ownership however Klopp's strategies guaranteed Liverpool baffled their rivals, confining them to couple of genuine risks.

Klopp gets his strategies right

A few eyebrows were raised before commence when Klopp chose to begin Origi rather than England universal Daniel Sturridge.

Origi had not scored since 14 February, while Sturridge seemed, by all accounts, to be discovering his shape in the wake of coming back from harm with three objectives in nine amusements.

The 20-year-old was just an observer in the opening stages as Liverpool doused up some early weight, however Klopp said before the diversion that he had given him the gesture in light of his pace and power - and both were on show when the guests led the pack.

He controlled commander Jordan Henderson's somewhat ungainly ball eminently before transforming towards objective and guiding a low strike into the far corner.

From that point on, Origi held up the ball astoundingly to assuage some weight on a protection that obviously went under some overwhelming weight on occasion.

In Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Dortmund have a standout amongst the most deadly finishers in Europe, yet Dejan Lovren and Mamadou Sakho confronted the assignment of invalidating the 33-objective Gabon striker.

Eyes on Klopp for 'El Kloppico'

Jurgen Klopp

Enthusiasm for Klopp's arrival to Dortmund was immense in the development.

The 48-year-old German is affectionately associated with his accomplishments at the club he oversaw for a long time from 2008, having driven them to two Bundesliga titles also the last of the Champions League in 2013.

Around 20 TV teams and somewhere in the range of 100 writers were in participation for his pre-match news gathering, while one German TV had been arranging a 'Klopp Cam', which would have concentrated on the Liverpool manager for the full a hour and a half - in spite of the fact that that thought was at last racked.

At the point when Klopp developed before the match, his name was droned by the home fans yet the Liverpool manager was apparently quick to ensure he was not the focal point of consideration.

Subsequent to recognizing the home fans with an applaud, he changed concentrate immovably to his own particular players warming up and there was most likely about where his devotions lie when he pounded his mid-section and thundered in joy after Origi's objective.

Advantage Liverpool?

In spite of the away objective, the tie is a long way from being done. Dortmund have scored in each of their past six away diversions, including two objectives at Tottenham in the past round of the opposition.

Enhancing their guarding at set-pieces will likewise be key for Liverpool. Hummels was left unmarked to head in the most straightforward of objectives from a corner, which means the previous three objectives Liverpool have surrendered in the Europa League have been from set-pieces.

History is on Liverpool's side, however. They have advanced from 11 of their previous 12 European ties in which they have drawn the primary leg far from home.

"We have been to a great deal of places and scored and won. It's half-time and the players are certain. We are anticipating the diversion at Anfield."

Liverpool chief Jurgen Klopp: "Dortmund is a quite decent side and everybody could see that, however we had our minutes and we could have won.

"I'm almost certain many individuals thought we would lose 2-0, 3-0 or 4-0. Be that as it may, at a few minutes we had Dortmund and around our objective we were splendid.

"We are not that far on our approach to being as are they. We can't right now play like they play, however we can guard and score objectives so we can win."

All alone gathering from the Dortmund fans: "It was pleasant. Many people talked about it yet when I went onto the pitch it was deferential commendation and that is pleasant. That is the means by which it ought to be."
