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.
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.
Both teams to score
