Liverpool vs Sevilla betting tips and predictions for the Champions League clash on Wednesday 13th September at 7:45pm. Read today’s betting preview for the match below.
Liverpool are back in the Champions League and they begin their campaign at Anfield. The Reds beat Hoffenheim here to secure their place in the competition and they are handed a tough start against La Liga outfit Sevilla. They suffered a huge setback at the weekend with a 5-0 defeat to Manchester City although Sadio Mane was dismissed controversially and that set them back. They will need a much-improved performance here and they haven’t been handed much time to recover. Sevilla also came through the qualifiers with a narrow victory over Basaksehir Istanbul across two very entertaining ties.
It ended 3-1 to Sevilla when these two sides met in Switzerland for the Europa League final and both sides struggled at the back during the qualifiers in this competition. Liverpool have plenty of firepower going forward but their defensive troubles are far from resolved and this should be an entertaining affair. Sevilla arrive off the back of two clean sheets but this is much tougher than either Eibar or Getafe. Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals is the first of today’s Liverpool vs Sevilla predictions at odds of 20/23 with Coral.
Mo Salah has impressed since he arrived and he netted during the Champions League Qualifiers and he could get on the scoresheet here. Salah has netted two of his three goals at Anfield this season and also found the target during Roma’s first Europa League match of the season last year. He is a doubt for the match with illness but we’re hoping he’s fit for our Liverpool vs Sevilla betting tips. He’s 6/4 with 888Sport to score anytime against Sevilla.
William Hill have already priced up a number of enhanced odds for the match and our favourite is Both Teams to Score in the 1st half. We are expecting a high-scoring match and this bet would have landed during the home encounter with Hoffenheim. If Andrej Kramaric hadn’t missed the penalty in Germany, it would have also landed in the first leg. Both teams to score in the 1st half is enhanced to 4/1 at William Hill for all customers. That concludes our Liverpool vs Sevilla predictions for this Champions League clash.
Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Lallana remain on the sidelines and will not feature here. Danny Ings is a long term casualty. Phillipe Coutinho is lacking match fitness having not played for the club this season although he did feature for Brazil in their recent World Cup Qualifier.
David Soria is the only real absentee for the visitors and he will miss this tie.
The last and only recent meeting between these two sides was the Europa League final in 2016 where Sevilla ran out 3-1 winners.
