Liverpool entered their first game in the Champions League since 2014 with a 2-2 match draw against Spanish giants, Sevilla.

The men of Eduardo Berizzo took the lead five minutes after the game kicked off. Wissam Ben Yedder had a clear opportunity to kick the ball into the net from a close range after Dejan Lovren tripped in an attempt to steal the ball.

The Reds responded to this through Roberto Firmino who was able to equalize when he fired home from a close range at the 21st minute.

Jurgen Klopp’s men continued to push forward and fortunately have been rewarded as Mohamed Salah’s strike went through the net through the opposition Simon Kjaer’s deflection.

Sadly for the Reds, the Spanish side was able to react as Correa tucked home at the 72nd minute. This forced both team to settle and end the game in draw.

Despite this, Liverpool have shown determination to hamper Sevilla from snatching victory at Anfield. It could have been worse after getting left behind early. But with the attacking potency of Firminho and Salah, it has given the club significant confidence to play with quality.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are expected to face off Burnley in the Premier League on Sept. 16 (check out the best betting odds).
