Europa League: Liverpool vs Sevilla

Liverpool vs Sevilla Betting Tip and Predictions. In the final of the UEFA Europa League in Basel, for the season 2015/2016, will meet Liverpool vs Sevilla. Read below betting preview, useful info and predictions for the match between Liverpool vs Sevilla.

Unai Emery, coach of Sevilla looks on during a Sevilla training session on the eve of the UEFA Europa League Final against Liverpool at St. Jakob-Park on May 17, 2016 in Basel, Switzerland.

Liverpool didn’t have an impressive season in Premier League finish the season at the 8th position. They failed to reach the place which leads in Europe next season, but they have a chance to reach the group stage of the Champions League if they beat Sevilla and win the trophy in Europa League final. Liverpool finished the group phase of this competition at the 1st place, while later they eliminated Augsburg, Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and Villarreal. This is the last step that they want to make and without any doubt they will be fully motivated to win this trophy and play in the Champions League next season. Their manager Jürgen Klopp is optimistic, but he know that it won’t be an easy match for them. “This is a big chance to take a big step. I can promise that we will try everything. The problem is, Sevilla will do the same!” – said Klopp.

Sevilla finished the season in Primera divison at the 7th position which leads in the qualification for the UEFA Europa League next season, but they want to play in the Champions League next season, so they want to win this trophy and qualify directly in the elite Europan club competition next season. Spanish side have already played in the Champions League this season and after they finished at the 3rd position they continue their Europan mission in Europa League. On their way to the final, Sevilla eliminated Molde, Basel, Athletic Bilbao and Shakthar Donetsk. It seems that they have easier way to the final than Liverpool, but it doesn’t mean that Sevilla are less quality than their opponent in the final. Actually, they have very strong and organized squad. And an experience. They have already lifted the trophy in this competition so many times. “We can change history and have our names recorded in the history of the competition. We must find a balance, though, to keep our emotions in check so we can be fully focused. We’ll need it.” – said Sevilla manager Unai Emery.
