Sevilla vs Liverpool – UEFA Champions League: Big game in the group E of the Champions League with everything left to decide…
Sevilla hosts Liverpool at home in a match where both teams need the 3 points.
In my opinion, we will then have an open match with goals.
On the 1st round of the Champions League of this group, the teams tied 2-2. It seems that we have every condition to have a very similar result on this 5th round.
Sevilla is super strong at home, not having lost yet in 2017, but they have some restrictions on the defensive sector, and because of that, they have conceded on their last 5 La Liga matches,
and, in the Champions League, they have conceded 6 goals in the 2 matches against Spartak Moscow (5 of them on their loss in Russia).
Adding the 2 goals conceded at Anfield, it is safe to say that they are a team that always concedes on the matches against good teams and even more when they have some injuries on the defensive line.
As for Liverpool, they are super strong up front with Salah, Firmino, Mané and Coutinho but they present a lot of difficulties on the defensive line.
Despite only conceding 3 goals in the Champions League, on the matches against the teams that are fighting to advance, they conceded at least one goal against Sevilla and Spartak.
We have then a team that always scores in its matches, both in the Champions League and the Premier League, since they have a really strong attacking front, with the highlight being Salah that has 14 goals in 18 matches this season.
Liverpool has a record of 24 goals scored and 17 goals conceded in 12 league matches while Sevilla has a record of 14 goals scored and 12 goals conceded in the same number of matches.
However, if we analyse just the 5 last matches, which is where Sevilla’s injuries started, that number is very beneficial for the Over 2.5 because Sevilla’s last 7 matches in all competitions have ended with Over 2.5 goals.
Sevilla vs Liverpool – Betting Tip and Prediction:
It is also worth mentioning that the Champions League biggest win so far is Liverpool’s, who has beaten Maribor 0-7.
As for Sevilla, all their Champions’ League matches this season have finished with Over 2.5 Goals and even their play-off match against the Turks of Basaksehir ended with a 2-2 draw at the Sanchez Pijuan.
Therefore, we have a match that has everything to finish with a lot of goals, since these are two attacking teams that defend poorly.
Both teams need to win and the draw doesn’t suit neither of them so I predict the Over 2.5 goals to win fairly easily, as well as the Both teams to score bet.
