The start of the Champions League means, for many teams, the first real tests about what they are able to accomplish in this current season
Furthermore, they are doing it in this group stage with only six matches, where only 1 or 2 bad matches can end up being fatal for each club’s ambitions.
Liverpool can’t complain about not having had very tough matches in this beginning stage of the season.
The balance that can be made of their matches against Arsenal and Manchester City is completely the opposite.
Against the Gunners, they dominated completely and ended up battering them 4-0. Against the Citizens, they were dominated, after having a player sent off, and ended up losing 5-0.
Jurgen Klopp isn’t, however, a man that would let this kind of situation affect him.
He will in fact take advantage of this match against Sevilla to start building the return to confidence of the Reds’.
Despite some injury problems, Coutinho should be back now and present as one of the main solutions to get the win.
Eduardo Berizzo’s Sevilla is finding the space to develop their playing style, retouched by the arrival of this new manager and the player moves they made.
The balance is, for now, positive, confirming their entrance in the Champions League against Basaksehir and already having 2 wins and a draw in La Liga.
With only 1 goal conceded in 3 matches, Sevilla will see their defensive line put to test in Anfield Road.
It will probably be the most important aspect in the clash between these two balanced teams.
Liverpool vs Sevilla – Betting Tip and Prediction:
The interesting storyline here is whether Liverpool will be able to return to winning ways, after their negative result in Manchester.
I think Sevilla’s evolution, who should have here another important test, will need more time before being able to steal points at such a tough ground, so I’m going with Liverpool here.
