Sevilla have won six of their last seven home games in the Champions League, but I’m not convinced the Spanish side are quite as good as the one who beat Liverpool in the final of the Europa League in 2016.
Sevilla scored with both shots on target in the reverse fixture at Anfield on Matchday One and were, arguably, fortunate to come away with a draw.

Tip: City to win to nil at
Borussia Dortmund v Tottenham
Spurs got what their tepid performance at the Emirates deserved on Saturday but I think they will bounce back against Dortmund who must win to have any chance of qualifying for the last 16.
Spurs are already through to the knock out stages and can play their football safe in the knowledge that their primary goal has already been achieved. I think they will get at least a point against the Bundesliga outfit who are perhaps not the force of old.
