Sevilla need to beat Maribor to reach the last-16 and Dan Fitch thinks they'll do it in style....

"Maribor lost 3-0 to Sevilla in the reverse fixture and also conceded ten goals in their two matches against Liverpool, who beat them 7-0 in Slovenia."

Back Sevilla to win both halves at [2.40]

Maribor [17.0] v Sevilla [1.23]; The Draw [7.0]

Group E tightly poised

Liverpool won't welcome the reminder but Sevilla's brilliant comeback in their last Champions League outing has set up an exciting climax in Group E.

They were 3-0 down at half-time at home to the Reds, only to fight back to draw 3-3 with a 93rd minute equaliser. The draw leaves Sevilla second in the group behind Liverpool, who they could finish above if the English side fail to beat Spartak Moscow at home. There is also the possibility of elimination, should third place Spartak win and Sevilla fail to beat Maribor.

Eduardo Berizzo's team are in good form and should get the win they need against a Maribor side that have yet to win a match in the group stage. Sevilla are unbeaten in five and beat Deprtivo 2-0 at the weekend, which cut the gap between themselves in fifth and the La Liga leaders Barcelona, to just eight points.

Their opponents Maribor are currently top of the league in Slovenia, but are not playing like champions. Maribor's victory over Goricor over the weekend was only their third win in the last eight games.


Back Sevilla to inflict heavy defeat

Sevilla are the heavy favourites at [1.23], with the draw at [7.0] and Maribor [17.0].

Maribor lost 3-0 to Sevilla in the reverse fixture and also conceded ten goals in their two matches against Liverpool, who beat them 7-0 in Slovenia. With a heavy away win likely as Secilla look to ensure qualification for the last-16, back them to Win Both Halves at [2.40].
