Sion vs Liverpool 10 Dec 2015: Europa League Preview and Predictions
10 December 2015/1505ET
The final match day in the group stage of the Europa League is here and while there are quite a few matches that I am excited about watching, the game which will have my interest will be between Swiss side Sion as they host Liverpool. This match is between the top two teams in the group and the winner will have the luxury of topping the group so there is plenty to play for.
Sion come into this game having not won a game in over a month. This side had a great start to the season but this last few weeks have been terrible and they will want to do whatever is possible in order to get the three points. In the favor of the Swiss side, they will be at home and they are facing opposition who have been struck by injury and inconsistent. Sion will take hope from this and will want to get a win here.

Liverpool will also want to leave this game by taking home all three points and if they play well they should do so. This is a side with immense talent and they have a manager who knows how to win. These two aspects take teams a long way and winning here will prove a point to doubters. Klopp will see the Europa League as a league which they can win and as a result they will want to top the group. This team has what it takes to win but they will be without Sturridge once again as he has picked up another injury. The injuries are piling up for the Reds but they have enough talent to get the three points here in my opinion.
Liverpool are at 2.25 to win this match which I think is high enough to put money on them. Liverpool have a better squad and their opponents, Sion, are in dreadful form. These two factors make me believe that the Reds will win this match and at this price we are getting good value.
