Sevilla – Liverpool
Sevilla hosts Liverpool in a game from Group E of the UEFA Champions League.
These two teams are currently leading the group, just two rounds before the end of the group stage. Liverpool are leaders with 8 points, while Sevilla follow with 7. Spartak Moscow are third with 5 points.
Liverpool have a record of two wins and two draws so far. They are the only unbeaten team in the group. The Reds are not performing in the best possible way in the English Premier League, but in the Champions League they are pretty close to guarantee their place in the 1/8-finals. This could happen this week, if they manage to take the win at the Ramon Sanchez Pisjuan in Seville.
These two teams already met in the first round of the group stage. The dramatic match at the Anfield ended with a 2-2 draw, after both teams had the advantage in different moments of the game. Can we see at least four goals in their second encounter as well? This would be great for the football fans watching it.
This is an important clash for the first place in the group. Although it’s not always the case, very often the first place in the group stage guarantees a better opponent for the 1/8-finals. You can be sure that both teams would like to finish first in this group. And the game at the Ramon Sanchez Pisjuan is really crucial for that.
On theory, even a draw would satisfy Liverpool. The English team hosts Spartak Moscow in the last round of the group stage, so they’d have the chance to control their destiny at their own stadium. As for Sevilla, they must win if they want to finish first. Now they will have the help of their fans as well.
