Liverpool meets Sevilla for the opening day of the Champions League group stage. While Liverpool are in the group stage for the first time since 2014-2015 – and just the second time in eight seasons – Sevilla are in the last 32 for the third campaign running and looking to build on last term’s progress to the round of 16. The last six European games at Anfield have ended in a home win. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last ten European home matches. Forward Sadio Mane will be available despite his sending off at Manchester City on Saturday (defeat 5-0), as his three-game ban only applies to English games. Sevilla are unbeaten this season, coming through a Champions League play-off against Istanbul Basaksehir and picking up seven points from three La Liga games. Philippe Coutinho is “fit and healthy” but Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp would not say if he will make his first club appearance of the season.
