Liverpool are back in the Champions league after dismantling Hoffenheim in qualifying, winning 6-3 on aggregate. They have started their league campaign with 2 win ( both at Anfield), a draw (3-3 at Watford) and a loss ( 5-0 at City). They started the game at the Etihad brightly and had decent chances to open the scoring but conceded to a Sergio Aguero goal and then got a man sent off for dangerous play. It was all City after that and they lost emphatically by 5-0. Such results would not do their confidence a lot of good before an important champions league game but they have a good manager in Klopp and he will want to get that result off their head as quickly as possible with a good performance here. It is unknown if Coutinho will return here but he is fit and should at least make the match day squad. The dangerous trio of Mane- Firmino- Salah are expected to lead the line in a 4-3-3 formation.

Sevilla did well to eliminate Istanbul Basaksehir in qualifying campaign getting an important win in Turkey by 2-1 before drawing 2-2 at home. They are kings of the less prestigious Europa league but it is uncertain if they have the pedigree to compete at this level. They are a good team though with capable players and they have started their domestic campaign with 2 wins and a draw. The last game was a 3-0 defeat of Eibar over the weekend.

Liverpool will have to make Anfield a fortress to go far in this competition and the return of Coutinho should boost the attack line too especially with his screamers. Their is much fluidity in the forward line and they have a hard-working box-box midfielder in Wijnaldum and a sturdy defensive midfielder in Emre Can. The defense though is the weak link in the team and maybe the goal-keepers but they have a team which can outplay and outscore their opponents today and considering Sevilla less than impressive record in this competition, Liverpool to win is my pick.
