Liverpool vs Sevilla by Rainbow-Bet
Get ready for the Europa League final at St.Jakob-Park in Basel, Switzerland. Liverpool are up against Sevilla, who is the most winning team in Europa League with 4 titles. Tonight the red and white from Spain could win this tournament for the third time in a row. But is not going to be easy against a hard-working Liverpool side, who's knocked out big teams like Dortmund and Villarreal.
Liverpool's got a new start and new optimism under manager Jürgen Klopp, after a rather poor Premier League season, this tournament could save the season for Liverpool and their supporters. The Europa League's got a high priority for the reds from Merseyside, because of the Champions League spot next year for the winner.
The last two matches in the league have been both been 1-1 draws, first against Chelsea and last weekend against West Bromwich. Against WBA manager Klopp decided to play eleven reserve players in the starting lineup, to rest today's starters. Still a few injuries in this Liverpool squad, Jordan Henderson (midfield) and Divock Origi (striker) are not 100% fit, and will probably start on the bench.
Unavailable players Liverpool:
Joseph Gomez (defender)
Mamadou Sakho (defender) suspended
Jordan Henderson (midfield) doubtful
Jordan Rossiter (midfield)
Danny Ings (striker)
Divock Origi (striker) doubtful
Expected lineup Liverpool:
Clyne – Toure – Lovren – Moreno
Milner – Can
Lallana – Countinho – Firmino
Sevilla and manager Unai Emery are trying to take home their fifth Europa League title tonight, an amazing achievement. Is the most winning team in this tournament with titles in 2006, 2007, 2014 and 2015. Like Liverpool this Sevilla side didn't deliver in the Spanish la Liga, and ended up on a 7th place on the table. This spot doesn't give them Europa matches at all next year, that's why this match is so important for both sides.
Manager Emery decided to rotate in his starting eleven against Athletic Bilbao last weekend in the league, the match ended with a defeat, while both Kolodziejczak and Coke saw red cards. This Sevilla side has been great at home (14-1-4), and poor away from home (0-9-10). It's going to be exciting to see how they will approach this game.
Sevilla is also a hard-working team, they're flying in with tackles and gets a lot of cards. They've also got a quick goalscorer in Kevin Gameiro, who's a big threat for any defense.
Unavailable players Sevilla:
Benoit Tremoulinas (defender)
Marco Andreolli (defender)
Michael Krohn-Dehli (midfield)
Jose Antonio Reyes (midfield)
Expected lineup Sevilla:
Mariano – Rami – Carrico – Escudero
Krychowiak – N'Zonzi
Coke – Banega – Vitolo
This is going to be a dynamic game, with high tempo from the start. Most likely will see a lot of tackles and duels. We're going to play a card-bet in this match.
