Full-time: Sevilla 3-3 Liverpool

Well, make of that what you will.

Liverpool were 3-0 up and cruising at half-time thanks to a Firmino brace and a Mane header, but two from Ben Yedder and a late, late Pizarro strike have handed Sevilla one point and an evening to remember.

The inquest will start for Klopp's side, who should have been home and hosed after the first period, but Berizzo's men will care not. Still much to decide in Group E.

That's it for our coverage of the goings on in Sanchez Pizjuan. Have a good evening.



Pizarro stabs home from a corner to send the Sevilla faithful into delirium. Just incredible. Full-time seconds away.


GOAL! Sevilla 3-3 Liverpool (Pizarro)


Milner fires the ball across the face of goal but nobody can latch onto it. Klopp incensed on the touchline, feels that his side should have had a penalty for a foul on Mane, who went down too easily.


Sevilla need a second wind and they need it quickly. Liverpool look the more likely to score next.

Klopp is making a final change - Salah coming off for Oxlade-Chamberlain, who gets the last five minutes plus stoppage time.


Final change for Sevilla - Ben Yedder off Correa.

Meanwhile, Mane is set free but blasts his shot over. A bit more composure and the Senegal star ends the contest.


An incredible intervention from Banega keeps the score 3-2.

Liverpool break with Can and Mane, but the former's low cross is cleared by the Argentine, who is not known for his defensive capabilities.


Sevilla make a second change - Nolito off, Muriel on.


Liverpool perhaps should have made it four in their first attack of the second half. Rico makes a hash of a cross before Pizarro is robbed by Firmino, who tees up Salah.

The in-form Egyptian snatches at his shot which goes for a corner, and Sevilla eventually clear.


The Sevilla faithful go wild as Henderson clatters into Escudero. He rightly receives a yellow for a clumsy challenge that included an elbow to the back of his opponent's head. Naughty.


Henderson gives the ball away cheaply and allows Sarabia to win a corner.

It's cleared, and eventually offside is given.


Sevilla come close again! Escudero rattles the crossbar after his shot is parried by Karius.

Klopp has acted with a double change, Can and Milner on for Coutinho and Moreno, who has had a rather torrid 17 minutes.


Ben Yedder has his second after converting a calm penalty, sending Karius the wrong way twice after having to take the spot-kick twice due to encroachment. Game well and truly on.


GOAL! Sevilla 2-3 Liverpool (Ben Yedder)


GOAL! Or not. The referee has ordered it to be retaken for encroachment.


Moreno again... the ball gets caught under his feet, and he ends up clumsily tripping Ben Yedder.




Sevilla piling on the pressure now as Escudero jinks his side and delivers a teasing ball that Moreno heads clear. Their tails are up, they can smell bloody from a rocking Liverpool.


Mercado has gone into the book for dissent after Coutinho concedes a rather innocuous foul in another dangerous area.

It's a good ball from Geis, but Lenglet is adjudged to have fouled Lovren.


A needless tackle from Moreno gives Sevilla free-kick, which is headed in excellently by Ben Yedder. A lifeline for Breizzo's men, who have started the second-half in spritely fashion.


GOAL! Sevilla 1-3 Liverpool (Ben Yedder)


Sarabia makes a lovely, untracked run into the Liverpool box but he is adjudged offside. The Spaniard was cleared out by Karius, for nothing.


Second half under way, and Vazquez is immediately involved, setting away Sarabia.


A change afoot for Sevilla at half-time. N'Zonzi off for Franco Vazquez.
