Dortmund won the game 3-1, but the injury to Subotic, who last week put pen to paper on a new contract until 2016, took the gloss off the victory.

"It's not a very pleasant situation for us, but with (Felipe) Santana, we do have somebody who can replace him," the club's general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke said on sport1.de.

Marco Reus was on target for Jurgen Klopp's side in the 3-1 win over Spanish third-division opponents.

"Overall, I'm satisfied," said Klopp. "After the hard training sessions, it was obvious we would not be so sharp."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
