Liverpool take on Sevilla in the Europa League final tonight. Here are our best bets, including why you should bet on Sevilla.

It’s the final of the Europa League, and online sportsbooks in the EU have lots of great odds. We pick out the best odds for Liverpool v Sevilla in Basel tonight.

Bet on Sevilla to win

Best Odds on Liverpool v Sevilla (90mins only) at Bet365 Sportsbook

  • Liverpool @ 2.30 (13/10)
  • Draw @ 3.40 (12/5)
  • Sevilla @ 3.40 (12/5)

If this were next year, the odds for Liverpool to win would be far lower. Jurgen Klopp is taking them in the right direction, but he hasn’t had a full season to instil his ideas, or a summer transfer window to shape the team in his image. They’ve had some highs, but they’ve had few impressive performances domestically.

Unai Emery has created a team that specialises in winning the Europa League. Sevilla’s experience should serve them well, while Liverpool’s young team may be over-awed by the final. Sevilla may not have had a great season, but they’ve shown an ability to win the matches that matter. They’ve been concentrating on this match for months, and that preparation should show.

Bet on a draw (at half time anyway!)

If you bet on sports you’ll know it’s tough for a team to win a match in the first half, but it can certainly lose it. Liverpool have been drawing at half time in all but one of their Europa League away games this season. Bet on both managers to want to keep in tight in the early stages.

Bet on Liverpool to win (on penalties)

Sevilla may have made it to their third consecutive final, but their European form has masked their fairly terrible season. They’re miles from the top of La Liga, and incredibly they didn’t win a single away game. Liverpool, meanwhile, have played at time like they belong among the European elite.

While Sevilla manager Unai Emery may have a tough time motivating his players after their previous wins, Klopp will have no such trouble. He’s a master at getting his players in the mood for the big occasion, though you’d think that won’t be hard with the prospect of a trophy and participation in next season’s Champions League at stake! It might take extra time and penalties though

Bet on Kevin Gamiero to score

Sevilla’s French frontman has had the season of his career, with his performances peaking in knockout stages of the Europa League. He has been involved in 9 of Sevilla’s last 14 goals in the tournament. With Liverpool’s high press and his scintillating pace, the recipe for goals seems set.

Bet on over 3.5 goals

If Liverpool are to win, bet on a high scoring game. Look back to their Uefa Cup final victory back in 2001, where they won 5-4 in extra time. And, obviously, in their incredible comeback victory against Milan in the Champions League final in 2005, there were 6 goals scored before penalties. Bet on plenty goals tonight!

Best Bet: Bet on over 3.5 goals for 3.25 (9/4) @ BetFair
