The 2016 Europa League final between Liverpool and Sevilla is due to take place at St. Jakob-Park in Basel on 18 May, with both teams vying to take home European club football's second biggest prize and earn a lucrative spot in next year's Champions League.

Jurgen Klopp may have only been Liverpool manager for seven months, but this is the second cup final he has taken the Reds to. The former Borussia Dortmund coach will be hoping for a better result than the last final, where Liverpool were beaten by Manchester City in the Capital One Cup on penalties.

They go up against a Sevilla side who are looking to make history by becoming the first side to win the Europa League three times in a row. The Spanish side already are the most successful team in the history of the tournament, having won the trophy four times previously.

Ahead of the match IBTimes UK sports editor Nick Howson looks at how the two teams are expected to line up, which players are set to shine, and who will likely prevail in the final.
