Liverpool v Sevilla betting preview


Liverpool are a club that are synonymous with the Champions League. The Reds are the most successful English club in the competition's history having lifted the famous trophy no fewer than five times in their history, so the Anfield faithful will be delighted to see their team competing at the top level of domestic football again, particularly after two years out of the competition.

Jurgen Klopp's men came close to qualifying for the version of the competition last year via the Europa League route before they were beaten by Sevilla in the final in Switzerland. The Spanish side arguably present the biggest threat to the Merseysiders in a group that also contains Spartak Moscow and Maribor, so the hosts will want to get the group stages off to the best possible here with a win at 3/4 with Coral.

Sevilla have been the kings of the Europa League in recent years but they're now hoping to make waves in Europe's elite competition instead. Last season they managed to progress through the group stages before being knocked out by the competition's surprise package, Leicester City. Los Rojiblancos were able to qualify for the UCL again though by finishing fourth in the La Liga table.

Whilst Liverpool romped past Hoffenheim 6-3 on aggregate, Eduardo Berizzo's men were pushed all the way by a pluck Istanbul Basaksehir outfit and eventually managed to progress thanks to a 4-3 aggregate victory. The Spanish side will look to play on the front foot as always and knowing this first match is probably the hardest, they have nothing to lose in going for the win at 19/5 with BetVictor.

Given that Sevilla are likely to play to their strengths and look to attack Liverpool in this game, we can see goals. The Reds' defensive problems have been well documented and the hosts will struggle to cope with the quality of players like Wissam Ben Yedder and Luis Muriel. We do however expect the Reds to earn all three points with the home advantage so we're on the home win and both teams to score at 23/10 with Ladbrokes.

Sadio Mane was arguably Liverpool's most important player last season. When the Senegalese international was away at the African Cup of Nations with his country, the club's league form dipped and manager Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to keep the ex-Southampton man fit and firing. After a blistering start to the season with three goals in three EPL games, he's our anytime scorer pick in this match too.

Recommended bets:
Liverpool to win and both teams to score @ 23/10 with Ladbrokes
Sadio Mane to score at any time
