Liverpool v Sevilla Betting Preview – UEFA Champions League 13th September 7.45pm

This should be one of the best games of the first round of action in the UEFA Champions League. Liverpool are a positive attacking force on home soil at Anfield and will want to get a positive start on the board in this fixture. But Sevilla have started their domestic campaign well and won’t be a pushover and will fancy their chances against a susceptible Liverpool defence. This is a repeat of the 2016 Europa League Final which Sevilla won 3-1.

Liverpool v Sevilla Betting Tips

Along with Manchester United and Chelsea, Liverpool are making a return to the UEFA Champions League. This is their first group stage campaign since the 2014/15 season. Their only previous experience against Sevilla was in the Europa League Final in May 2016 and despite taking the lead in the match, Liverpool were beaten 3-1. They haven’t gotten past the group stage in the UEFA Champions League since the 2008/09 season. They were in the play off round of this season’s competition and put a 6-3 aggregate win on the board over Hoffenheim in it. That just raises questions about their defence. Both teams to score at bet365 returns a price of 4/7 for this fixture. There could well be goals around and over 3.5 goals is trading 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 do have home form in Europe having won their last six matches there and they have remained unbeaten at Anfield in their last ten European fixtures 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 up against Premier League opposition in the form of Leicester in the round of sixteen in last season’s Champions League and ended up losing 3-2 on aggregate. They lost at the King Power 2-0 and that was their third straight defeat in England. They remain without a victory in any of their last five visits to England with a D2 L3 record. That 2-0 loss at Leicester last season is actually their only loss in their last eight away games in UEFA competition (W3 D4). 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 also came through the play off round, beating 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.

Liverpool v Sevilla Predictions

Liverpool to win: This should be an open game because Liverpool are involved at Wembley. They were dealt a tough blow against Man City on the weekend, but they are a force to be reckoned with on home soil. Not an easy game, but the Reds can prevail at Anfield.
