Liverpool are in their first ever final of a European Trophy since 2007. The club, which has been taken over by Klopp made the Europa League the focus of their campaign and are now a game away from winning their 4th Europa League. In front of them, lie the two time defending Champions and 4 time winners, Sevilla who look to win an unprecedented 5th UEFA Europa League and a third trophy in a row.
The positives for Liverpool, ahead of their cup final are:
Jurgen Klopp has had a profound impact on Liverpool. He has revitalised a side that was lacklustre in its performances for over a year. Under Klopp the performances of Liverpool, especially in the final third of the pitch, have seen significant improvements.
Liverpool had a fairly late run for a Champions League spot which faltered towards the end, but it showcased more determination in the squad. The Europa League took more importance from the Quarter finals onwards as Liverpool have brushed aside strong opposition in Manchester United, Borussia Dortmund and Villarreal. Players who are key to Klopp’s main team, were rested on Match week 38 of the Premier League. They will be fresh and energized for the game.
Liverpool will go with all guns blazing, as it’s their final game of the season. Sevilla on the other hand would have to consider their upcoming Copa del Rey final against Barcelona following their match at Basel.
