Sion v Liverpool – Stade Tourbillon at 18:00 live on BT Sport Europe
Liverpool have already secured a place in the last 32 of the Europa League and will now look to hold on to top spot to secure what should be an easier draw in the next round.
They face Sion this evening who are yet to qualify for the knock-out stage and could still top the group with a win this evening. A loss for the Swiss side could spell the end for Sion however, if Rubin Kazan defeat Bordeaux who are currently 4th in group B with no chance of finishing higher than third.
Liverpool opened their Europa League campaign with 3 consecutive 1-1 draws, one of those in the reverse of tonight’s fixture. That result came 3 days before Brendan Rodgers was sacked and Liverpool have moved on from those draws since Jurgen Klopp took the reigns.
Back to back wins over Kazan and Bordeaux has secured their place in the next round and they will look to put last Sunday’s 2-0 defeat away to Newcastle behind them with a victory this evening. With qualification already in the bag, their focus may be more on the weekend fixture with West Brom, but they have enough quality in their squad to end the group on a high.
Sion need to win to ensure a top two finish but are on a bad run of form at the moment. They have won just 1 of their last 6 matches in all competitions, none of their last 4 and lost last time out in the UEL 2-0 away to Kazan.
A draw would suit both teams but Jurgen Klopp will want to see a response from his side after the weekend’s loss and just as they were in Russia, when they defeated Rubin Kazan, they are great value tonight to take all 3 points.
My recommendation is to back the visitors -0.5 on the Asian Handicap betting market at 2.21.
