Liverpool v Sevilla Prediction & Betting Tips – 13th September 201712th September 2017 / lee
Liverpool v Sevilla UEFA Champions League, 13th September 7.45pm
Liverpool will pose an attacking threat to most teams in the UEFA Champions League this season, but will they be able to stay steady at the back? That’s really the big question. This is a repeat of the 2016 Europa League Final which the Spaniards won 3-1 against the Reds. But Liverpool are a different beast at Anfield and they will want to lay down a positive marker in this opener. Liverpool are 7/10 to take the win, with the draw at 14/5 and Sevilla are trading at 15/4.

Liverpool v Sevilla Betting Tips
Like Manchester United and Chelsea this season, Liverpool are making a return to the Champions League after an absence. This is their first group stage campaign since the 2014/15 season. The Reds met Sevilla in the Europa League Final in May 2016 and despite taking the lead in the match, Liverpool were toppled. If they can get out of the group stage this season, then they will be doing so for the first time since the 2008/09 season. They had to come through the play off round to get to the group stage this season and the Reds ran out 6-3 aggregate winners over the Germans, but there will be question marks over Liverpool’s defence. Both teams to score at bet365 returns a price of 4/7 for this fixture. It is probably worth a flutter on the match going over 3.5 goals as well for a price of 5/4 with the bookmaker. The Reds have Daniel Sturridge, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino as 5/4 joint favourites in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market.
Liverpool have won their last six home games at Anfield in Europe and are unbeaten in ten there since a loss against Real Madrid in October 2014. Overall their record against Spanish Liga clubs is W14 D10 L11; at home, it is W5 D6 L5. Sevilla faced English opposition the Champions League last season when they faced Leicester in the round of sixteen, losing 3-2 on aggregate against the Foxes. That was a third straight away loss against Premier league sides and they have failed to win any of their five previous trips to England with a D2 L3 record. But, a 2-0 loss at Leicester last term remains their only loss in their last eight away games in UEFA competition (W3 D4). So they have some battling qualities. In the bet365 correct score market, a Liverpool 2-1 option is at 7/1 with the 2-2 draw not unappealing at 12/1. The Spaniards finished fourth in La Liga last season and beat Istanbul Buyuksehir in the play off round. Of note, they’ve made a strong start to the La Liga season with a W2 D1 record and just one goal conceded. Wissam Ben Yedder is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option for them. Sevilla have never been past the round of sixteen in the UEFA Champions League.
Who will win – Liverpool v Sevilla Predictions
Liverpool to win: There will be concerns over Liverpool’s back line and justifiable ones as well. But they have the scoring power to do some damage in this one and while they are facing a good side, Liverpool may just be strong enough on home soil to avenge that loss to Sevilla in the Europa League Final last year.
