Liverpool and Sevilla are set to meet in Switzerland tonight for the Europa League final. 

The Reds, under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp will most definitely fancy their chances after eliminating Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and Villarreal. 

But Sevilla will also be confident of securing the prestigious honour as they go in search of claiming the prize for the third consecutive year.

It will be quite the feat for the La Liga outfit, but they will have to be at their very best to get over the finish line. 

Indeed, they will certainly have to perform better than they usually do away from their own stadium.

Incredibly, in 31 matches away from the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium in all competition, Sevilla have secured just four wins. In fact, they have only secured one victory on the road in Europe this term. 

Liverpool, on the other hand, have won 11 of their 31 away games in all competitions. That's not exactly brilliant, but it's certainly far better than Sevilla's dismal showing.

Tonight, then, both teams will be desperate to produce the business at St. Jakob-Park.

Klopp's ready

One thing is for sure, Reds boss Klopp is feeling optimistic ahead of the contest and he has already insisted that it doesn't necessarily matter that Sevilla are on course to claim their third consecutive Europa League trophy. 

"To be honest, we could stop scouting two weeks ago because they changed the team completely," Klopp told Liverpool's official website.


"What we know is that they have another game after this game. They have a big final again. They have two finals - that's a big difference.

"They are quite experienced and will be ready too, no doubt about this. When you are experienced, it doesn't mean you have an advantage, it's only one part of all the parts around the game, and in the game you have to rule or solve.

"There's no advantage for one team. If you won it last year, what does it mean? If you won it two years ago, what does it mean? Actually nothing, so it's another game.

"We didn't play them last year in the final, we didn't play them two years ago in the final, so it's the first time they play against us. So that's our big advantage because we think we are quite different to all other teams in this moment. That's what we'll try to use.

"That's why we travelled to Basel on Monday. We have nothing else to do, to be honest. There's nothing more important in this moment. It's not about putting the pressure higher and higher, it's about getting the right atmosphere."
