LIVEBLOG: Liverpool vs. Sevilla

Live coverage as Sevilla look for a third consecutive Europa League success, with Liverpool the opposition in the final.

Los Rojiblancos have won the past two editions of the tournament, beating Benfica and Dnipro, and a win in Basel would be their fifth triumph in the competition since 2006.

Liverpool, meanwhile, have never won the Europa League but did claim three UEFA Cups, the last of which came in 2001 in an epic against Alaves.

Sevilla beat Shakhtar Donetsk in the semi-final while Liverpool overcame Villarreal, preventing an all-La Liga showpiece as in the Champions League.

Athletic Bilbao lost out to Sevilla at the quarter-final stage at the same time Liverpool dispatched Borussia Dortmund, and they respectively saw off hosts Basel and Manchester United in the Round of 16, and Molde and Augsburg in the Round of 32.
