Liverpool v Sevilla Betting Tips & Preview – Wednesday 13th September 2017

Liverpool’s return to the Champions League comes against a side they recently met in Europe. Jurgen Klopp guided his side to the Europa League final not long after taking over, but the Reds were beaten by Sevilla in that contest. Will revenge be on the cards for the hosts this week?

Kicking off against Sevilla is a tough way to start your group, but Liverpool fans must have been desperate for top level European football to return to Anfield. They have a huge clash to look forward to on Wednesday, but can they continue their strong recent form and take all three points from this one? Given that they’re battling the Spaniards for qualification and probably first place, this is a crucial opener for both.

Top Tips

  • Over 1.5 Liverpool goals - 8/11 with Coral
  • Liverpool to win - 3/4 with Ladbrokes

Analysis

Liverpool bounced back from a draw at Watford with four straight wins, which helped them into the Champions League proper. They won home and away to Hoffenheim, who finished fourth in Germany last season. They’re now up against the side who finished fourth in Spain. Can they add to that winning run when the Spaniards visit? The away side have made a sluggish start to the season, conceding three in their play-off tie against Istanbul Basaksehir.

Sevilla have been on a downward spiral since the start of the year, when their title challenge tailed off. A Champions League exit against Leicester was a blow, and they’ve not really recovered since. After some middling early season form, there’s little to suggest that Sevilla can pose a threat away to the Reds this week.

We have faith that Jurgen Klopp’s side will approach this in a similar manner to their double header with Hoffenheim. They’ll press high, look to get the most from their pacey forward line and create plenty of chances. We’re backing a home win here at 3/4 with Ladbrokes, while we also like the look of Liverpool scoring at least twice at 8/11 with Coral.

Other Bets

Liverpool’s high scoring nature and problems at the back should make this an entertaining tie. Sevilla have enough attacking talent to grab a goal in this trip, but we can’t see anything but a home win given how well the Reds are playing. They put on a show home and away to Hoffenheim, with both of those wins coming in high scoring fixtures.

Given Liverpool’s impressive form this season, we think it’s also wise to back the hosts to win a high scoring game. You can back Liverpool to win and over 2.5 goals at 13/10 with Betfred, which seems like a great price as far as we’re concerned. With Jurgen Klopp’s side set to go for the jugular, we expect at least another three goals here.
