Liverpool v Sevilla Betting Tips Explained

Liverpool almost certainly have a sour taste in their mouths heading into their first Champions League group game, having been thrashed 5-0 by Manchester City at the weekend. The Reds were trailing 1-0 but firmly in the match when Sadio Mane was given his marching orders for a high challenge on Ederson, and it was all downhill from there for the Reds as City piled on the misery with four more goals to run out comfortable winners. Afterwards Jurgen Klopp called it a lesson learned.

“We had clear moments and then it's one goal conceded – forget it, it can happen. But the red card gave them the advantage,” he told the club’s official website. “Everybody knows it's a bad place to be one man down and we could see this so we tried to drop a little bit deeper, but it makes completely no sense. We have a lot of things to learn from today, but the problem is today we cannot change it, we can only learn from it and make the next time better.”

Klopp will certainly be hoping his side can learn from their errors at the weekend when they resume their Champions League campaign on Wednesday night, and they have an opportunity at gaining a measure of revenge because they are taking on the team that beat them 3-1 in the 2016 Europa League Final, Spanish side Sevilla.

Sevilla are dining at the top table of European football this season, having successfully seen off Istanbul Basaksehir in the play-off round, and they are now unbeaten in their five competitive fixtures so far this season, winning both of their away games during that run. Eduardo Berizzo’s side go into this match on the back of a comfortable 3-0 win over Eibar that made it back-to-back wins and clean sheets for them, but can they make it three-in-a-row at Anfield?

My answer to that question is no. Liverpool may have been battered at the weekend, but much of that was down to losing Mane early on. Losing a player at the Etihad Stadium is bad enough, but when you lose such a key part of your attacking line-up it is always going to be a huge blow when taking on a side of City’s calibre. Liverpool should bounce back here – after all, they have won four of their last five games – but Sevilla should be able to grab a goal against this leaky Reds defence.

And speaking of goals and Mane, I suggest backing the Senegalese to get on the scoresheet and make some sort of amends for that dismissal at the weekend (for the record, I think the referee got the decision right). Mane has already helped himself to three Premier League goals so far this season and he will be a major handful for this Sevilla defence on Wednesday night. I believe he will put that red card disappointment behind him by giving The Kop a goal to cheer here.
