May 18: Europa League Betting Preview


LIVERPOOL have put all their eggs in the Europe League basket so Jurgen Klopp will hope his men strike silver tonight.

The German’s had a decent debut season with runs to two finals but in the bread and butter of the Premier League his side weren’t good enough.

After knocking out Dortmund Klopp rested players at Bournemouth and later against Swansea, Watford and West Brom.

So if they lose to Sevilla his men will have no European football next season but triumph and they’ll be back in the promised land of the Champions League – and Man United and Chelsea will feel really left out.

Wonderful wins against Dortmund and Villarreal suggest the trophy has Liverpool’s name on it but Sevilla could provide them with their toughest game as they go for three Europa League wins on the spin.

The Spaniards’ record in the tournament is remarkable and in Kevin Gameiro, who has scored seven of his side’s 14 goals, they have a proven matchwinner who has somehow managed to fill the big boots of Carlos Bacca.

After much thought I’ve decided to go with the Reds to lift the trophy at 3-4 with Ladbrokes while Sevilla are 23-20 at Betfred.

To win in 90 minutes Sevilla are 85-40 at McBookie with Liverpool 10-7 at 888sport. The draw will be popular at 5-2 with McBookie.

I like the look of both teams to score at a nice price of 20-23 with Coral while over 2.5 goals pays 21-20 with bet365 and William Hill.

French ace Gameiro is 11-2 at McBookie to score first and 15-8 to net at any time. For Liverpool I’d look at Robert Firmino at 14-5 with Stan James or big-game player Philippe Coutinho at 33-10 with 888sport.

    I went with Liverpool to lift the trophy at 8/11 for 5 pts. Think it will be tight but Liverpool’s name seems to be on the trophy after that Dortmund game, plus if Sevilla win it 3 times in a row that would be crazy.

    Delighted you’ve gone for Liverpool tonight sir. Nerves starting to kick in now and will need a few drinks to calm me down. No mather what happens tonight, gonna have a great time. Just think the last 2 finals Sevilla have played, they haven’t come up against a team with a most dangerous front 3 as this LFC side. Fingerscrossed.
