Betting Tip: Liverpool @ 7/5 with bet365

It’s easy enough to get swept up in a fairy-tale, which is an accurate description of Liverpool’s Europa League campaign this season.

The Reds have been pitted against Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund among other competitors, with Jurgen Klopp’s side getting the better of the Red Devils before a dramatic clash with their German opponents which saw Liverpool come back from the brink.

Villarreal were then beaten 3-1 on aggregate in the semi-finals and this final has been on the manager and players’ minds since then, with Klopp having sent out a weakened side for Sunday’s 1-1 draw at The Hawthorns.

The first team will be back on Wednesday and that could include Jordan Henderson who has made a timely recovery from injury to take his place in the squad and the midfield department is Liverpool’s strongest area.

Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino are both going to menace Sevilla, with Emre Can holding things together and Adam Lallana is a skilful operator who can drift between the lines.

Nevertheless, Sevilla are the Europa League holders and are bidding for a third successive crown in this competition, having finished seventh in La Liga.

Amazingly, the Spanish side have failed to win away from home domestically all campaign, with nine draws and ten defeats on the road.

That contrasts sharply with fourteen wins on home soil, with Jose Maria Del Nido’s side particularly astute when it comes to cup competitions and that has seen them defeat Shakhtar and Athletic Bilbao en route to the final.

Kevin Gameiro is the danger man for Los Rojiblancos and former Stoke midfielder Steven Nzonzi is a tough-tackling operator who will be looking to keep Coutinho under wraps.

However, Liverpool have a class striker of their own in Daniel Sturridge, while Dejan Lovren and Kolo Toure should be strong enough in central defence to ensure that the Reds finish the season by qualifying for the Champions League.
