Vicente Iborra believes his former club Sevilla will win at Anfield on Wednesday but believed a returning Philippe Coutinho could ‘make the difference’ for the hosts.
The 29-year-old won three Europa League titles for the Andalucians before moving to Leicester City this summer, where he has yet to debut due to injury.
“I think it's going to be a very complicated game for both teams, they are the strongest sides in the group,” Iborra told Onda Cero.
“They are two exceptionally talented teams and we are going to see a great game.
“My score prediction? I think it will finish 2-1 for Sevilla.
“Liverpool are physical, strong at the back and have quick players up front. We shall see if Coutinho plays or not but whoever plays, they will carry a threat.
“Coutinho is a different player...he has superior quality and can make the difference to the scoreline at any moment.”
