The Reds have tallied four successive victories since their embarrassing 4-1 loss to Tottenham in October and they have scored at least three goals in each of those wins, meaning they arrive in Andalusia full of confidence.
While they struggled to overcome Eduardo Berizzo’s side on home turf a number of months go, Klopp’s men are getting into a rhythm this time round and they will be aiming to pick up three points to ensure their place among the last 16.
Indeed, the fact that Sevilla utterly capitulated against Spartak Moscow – losing 5-1 – in October demonstrates that they can be unravelled and Klopp can certainly use that in his pre-match preparations.
