Liverpool could have put the game to bed in the first half, with the most glaring chance gone awry being the missed penalty from Roberto Firmino. Joaquin Correa’s second half goal seemed to have knocked the wind out of the Liverpool sails. They did try to push but Sevilla didn’t look like budging and made a few forrays into the opposition defence themselves. Liverpool were dangerous in their counter attacks but it is clear from this match that unless Jurgen Klopp finds an answer to their defensive woes, they can’t hope to go too far in Europe
