Preview: Sevilla v Liverpool

Sevilla and Liverpool meet on Tuesday evening with both sides looking to book their place in the knock-out stages of the Champions League.

The English side top Group E on eight points, whilst the Andalusian hosts sit in second place, making the game at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan a mouth watering fixture.

Whilst, Jurgen Klopp’s men could qualify with a draw should Spartak Moscow lose; Sevilla know a win only will see them through to the next round.

Eduardo Berizzo’s side head into the game having lost just one of their last four, coming against Barcelona before the international break at the Camp Nou.

Liverpool are in similar form, having won four matches in a row after beating Southampton at the weekend.

Defender Joel Matip is unavailable for the visitors through a groin problem, but striker Danny Ings have been included, despite only featuring once this season.

For the hosts, defensive pairing Daniel Carriço and Nico Pareja are both sidelined for tonight’s match while Simon Kjaer is expected to start at centre-back in place of Johannes Geis.

Wissam Ben Yedder is expected to lead the line after good form in the competition this season.

Expected XI:

Sevilla: Rico; Mercado, Kjær, Lenglet, Escudero; Banega, N’Zonzi, Pizarro; Sarabia, Yedder, Correa.

Liverpool: Karius; Gomez, Lovren, Klavan, Moreno; Henderson, Can, Coutinho; Mane, Salah, Firmino.
