Liverpool vs Sevilla Preview and Prediction: Draw 1-1 at 7/1
Liverpool and Sevilla will play first group stage game of the Champions League at Anfield on Wednesday, 13th September.
The teams have played just once before, in May 2016 in the Europa League and Sevilla won the game 1 – 3.
Liverpool had an impressive start to the domestic season and also enjoyed victories over Hoffenheim in the qualifying stages of the competition. However, over the weekend they suffered a humiliating 5 – 0 defeat to Manchester City.
Sevilla have also had a good start to the season winning both of their first games. They also defeated Istanbul Basaksehir in the qualifying stage of the competition.
Liverpool will have had their confidence knocked over the weekend but this could serve as motivation to produce a better display, especially in front of their home crowd. Sevilla have been playing quality football for a while and the match is sure to be close and hard fought. However, given that they are playing at home and rested some key players over the weekend, Liverpool may just have the edge.
A 1 – 1 draw or a 2 – 1 win for Liverpool is the most likely outcome with Paddy Power and Boyle Sports both offering odds of 7/1 on both results.
Paddy Power Odds: 4/6 Liverpool to Win, 3/1 for a Draw and 7/2 Sevilla to Win
Boyle Sports Odds: 7/10 Liverpool to Win, 3/1 for a Draw and 7/2 Sevilla to Win
