Less than a year after leaving the club, Jurgen Klopp is to return to Borussia Dortmund as Liverpool manager.

The draw was the fourth and final tie that was drawn is the highlight of the quarter-finals. Klopp won two Bundesliga titles at Dortmund and led the team to a Champions League final in his seven-year spell with the club.

As was the case in the Champions League draw, there will be an all-Spanish tie as reigning champions Sevilla face Athletic Bilbao. It will be the second round in a row where Bilbao face Spanish opposition after beating Valencia in the Round of 16.

The quarter-final draw has also paired former finalists Braga against Shakhtar Donetsk and Villarreal against Czech side Sparta Prague.

The ties will take place on the 7th and 14th of April. Basel's St. Jakob-Park will host the final on May 5th.
