The inquest can begin into how Liverpool have surrendered a three-goal lead in this crazy game of football.
Trailing 3-0 at half-time, Sevilla took full advantage of a shambolic Liverpool defence as they fought their way back.
The draw means neither side seal their place in the last 16 - and Sevilla's unbeaten home run is extended to 26 games!
Is there time for a winning goal?!
There is a delayed restart to the game as Sevilla fans celebrate by throwing all sorts onto the pitch.
What a game, what a night!
- GoalGuido PizarroSevilla FC
GOAL! SEVILLA HAVE DONE IT! 3-3!!!
With what must be the final kick of the game, Pizarro levels the scores!
Liverpool fail to clear from a corner and the ball falls kindly to Pizarro who slots in his second goal of the season from 10 yards out. What a comeback from the Liga side!
Oh my word!
Liverpool are holding on rather comfortably at the moment. They are moments away from being crowned winners of Group E with a game to spare...
There will be FOUR minutes of time added on!
Mane goes to ground in the Sevilla penalty area, but the referee waves away the protests. It would have been soft.
Then Milner drills a low cross into the six yard area... but there are no red shirts in the box!
- OffMohamed SalahLiverpool
- OnAlex Oxlade-ChamberlainLiverpool
Liverpool intent on wasting as much time as possible and they will take their time with this substitution as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain replaces Salah
FIVE minutes left to play! Will the hosts fashion one more opportunity?
Vazques drives to the by-line and plays a clever cut-back into the Liverpool penalty area, but it is slightly behind Correa and the visitors scramble the danger clear.
Mercado overcooks his cross and the ball rolls out harmlessly for a Liverpool goal-kick. Time running out for Sevilla.
- Yellow cardEmre CanLiverpool
Can goes into the book for pushing Mercado as he took a throw-in.
Can does well to find Mane who bursts into the penalty area only to screw his effort wide of post.
- OffWissam Ben YedderSevilla FC
- OnJoaquin CorreaSevilla FC
Ben Yedder, who now has SIX goals in the Champions League group stages, goes off to a rousing reception as he is replaced by Joaquin Correa for the final 10 minutes.
Liverpool launch a rapid counter-attack and go close to grabbing their fourth of the evening but Banega does brilliantly to intercept Can's pass for Mane. The Senegal international would have been left with a simple tap-in had Banega not been alert to the danger.
Pizarro delivers a dangerous cross into a packed Liverpool penalty area, but Lovren does well to head it behind and Karius punches the subsequent corner delivery clear.
Quite incredibly, Sevilla have had 76% possession in the second half.
Into the final 15 minutes now and this game is evenly poised. Can Liverpool hold on?
What should have been a comfortable victory for Liverpool has become something of a nail-biter. Their fragile defence has been exposed once again in this crazy second half.
- OffNolitoSevilla FC
- OnLuís MurielSevilla FC
Sevilla make a change in attack as they bring on Luis Muriel, with Nolito coming off.
Salah almost makes sure of the points. Can wins the ball back for Liverpool on the edge of the penalty area and tees the Egyptian forward up for a shot, but his first-time volley is deflected agonisingly wide.
- Yellow cardJordan HendersonLiverpool
Henderson fouls Escudero from behind and receives a booking. Frustration is creeping into the Liverpool side now.
Can Liverpool hang on? They face a massive test of their resilience in the final 25 minutes.
- OffAlberto MorenoLiverpool
- OnJames MilnerLiverpool
Klopp needed to do something and he has gone for a double substitution as James Milner and Emre Can are brought on in place of the disappointing Moreno and Coutinho.
OFF THE WOODWORK!
The crossbar comes to Liverpool's recsue as Ben Yedder goes agonisingly close with an effort from inside the box!
Wow, what has happened Liverpool in this second period? It has not been a happy home coming for Moreno who has been at fault for both of Sevilla's goals.
- Goal by penaltyWissam Ben YedderSevilla FC
GOAL! BEN YEDDER SCORES FROM THE SPOT!
The Sevilla forward scores from the spot... but the referee calls for the penalty to be re-taken!
Cool as you like though, he sticks the second penalty into the opposite corner and it is 3-2.
PENALTY TO SEVILLA!
Ben Yedder steals the ball from Moreno who proceeds to trip the French forward inside the box. The referee takes a moment to make his mind up, but eventually points to the spot!
Sevilla's goal has knocked the stuffing out of the Reds and suddenly the home side have their tails up.
Sevilla force another corner but Moreno is well positioned at the near post to head it clear.
Escudero delivers a dangerous cross, Karius comes for the ball and gets nowhere it and he is bailed out by Moreno who makes a crucial clearance with his head.
From the subsequent free-kick. Geis delivers a dangerous cross but the linesman spots a Sevilla player in an offside position.
- Yellow cardGabriel MercadoSevilla FC
Mercado goes into the book for dissent after complaining too much about Coutinho's foul.
That is exactly the start to the second period Sevilla manager Eduardo Berizzo would have hoped for. Game on, perhaps?
- GoalWissam Ben YedderSevilla FC
GOAL! SEVILLA CLAW ONE BACK!
Liverpool are punished for Moreno's carelessness as the hosts score from the free-kick.
Banega curls in an inviting cross and Ben Yedder is first to react as he glances a header past Karius, into the bottom corner.
Moreno, already on a yellow card, concedes a silly foul and Sevilla have a free-kick in a dangerous area, on the right channel.
Sevilla have seen a lot of the ball in the early stages of the second half. An early goal from the hosts could change the complexion of this game.
Sarabia has to receive treatment after a coming together with Karius, but the Sevilla forward will be fine to continue.
And we are underway in the second half. Will Sevilla improve? Or will Liverpool strengthen their lead?
- OffSteven N'ZonziSevilla FC
- OnFranco VazquezSevilla FC
Sevilla make a change at the break as Franco Vazquez replaces N'Zonzi.
Caught your breath yet? What a first-half performance from Liverpool who, as it stands, will win Group E with a game to spare.
Firmino's double either side of Mane's header has put the Reds in total control.
- End of 1st Half
Sevilla 0-3 Liverpool.
Two minutes will be added on at the end of a frantic first half.
- Yellow cardÉver BanegaSevilla FC
Banega is turned too easily by Coutinho and the Sevilla midfielder then cynically fouls the Brazilian. He receives a booking, and rightly so.
Moreno inadvertently heads the ball behind for a corner but makes amends by clearing at his near post from the subsequent set-piece.
Sevilla concede possession cheaply, again. This time Lovren feeds Mane who sends an inviting cross to the near post but Rico can gather.
Salah tries to find Coutinho at the back post with a dinked pass but Pizarro does well to intervene with his head.
Liverpool's frontline are running riot! A lovely ball from Coutinho releases Salah who should score but Rico does well to make a point-blank save and the loose ball is headed behind for a corner.
Coutinho has defenders retreating as he surges forward. However, he tries to pick out the run of Mane but his pass is intercepted.
- Yellow cardAlberto MorenoLiverpool
Former Sevilla defender Moreno is booked for a high challenge on Mercado.
Liverpool are totally dominant now and full of confidence.
Coutinho wins a corner and he finds Lovren on the edge of the penalty area. However, the defender takes his eye off the ball and fails to connect.
So Liverpool lead 3-0 after only half an hour and Sevilla find themselves in an utter mess.
The hosts have had opportunities of their own, but their defending has been criminal.
There are question marks over Rico's decision to stay in goal there. The Sevilla goalkeeper should have rushed from his net to clear the ball before Mane could latch onto it.
- GoalRoberto FirminoLiverpool
GOAL! FIRMINO NETS LIVERPOOL'S THIRD!
Dreadful defending, but the Reds won't care one bit. A simple long ball releases Mane who shows lightning pace to get away from his marker. His shot is saved by Rico but he can only parry the ball into the feet of Firmino who is left with a simple tap-in.
It's all happening in Seville! Now the ball boy presses the ball into Gomez's chest to encourage him to take the throw-in quicker.
Terrific vision and technique from Banega as he curls a through ball into the path of Nolito but the linesman raises his flag for offside.
Make that six goals*.
What a match this is! Dreadful defending at both ends, but Liverpool have been clinical in attack and Sevilla have been wasteful. Still, there is plenty of time left for the hosts to turn this around.
- GoalSadio ManéLiverpool
GOAL! MANE DOUBLES LIVERPOOL'S ADVANTAGE!
Firmino is played through with the goalkeeper, but Rico saves. It matters little as Liverpool score from the subsequent corner as Firmino is left unmarked at the near post and he glances the ball into the path of Mane who heads in at the back post. Very similar to the opener.
Sevilla miss another golden opportunity! This time it is Ben Yedder who is released behind the Liverpool defence, but with just Karius to beat he somehow sends the shot a couple of inches wide of the post!
Oh my, what an opportunity for Sevilla to grab an equaliser! Nolito times his run to perfection to run onto a through pass. He cleverly cuts the ball back as he skips by Gomes before slotting the ball towards the bottom corner, but Karius gets a fingertip to the shot to direct the effort onto the post!
Coutinho goes to ground quite emphatically on the edge of the area under the challenge of Pizarro but the referee is well positioned and waves away appeals for a free-kick.
A couple of crosses are delivered into the Sevilla penalty area, but the defence manages to scramble clear on both occasions.
Liverpool haven't made the last 16 of the Champions League since 2009 - but things are looking good at the moment.
A lovely reverse pass from Nolito - formerly of Man City - releases Escudero at the by-line but the full-back gets caught in two minds and ends up smashing the ball at the side netting. A wasted opportunity - all he had to do was cut the ball back for a team mate!
Banega delivers the free-kick to the back post, but it is catching practice for Karius in between the Liverpool sticks.
Ben Yedder goes down easily under the challenge of Henderson but wins the free-kick in a wide area.
Liverpool win a corner - and you know what happened with their first one.
However, this time it is straight forward for Sevilla's goalkeeper Sergio Rico who punches the ball to safety.
Meanwhile, Firmino goes down inside the area but he soon gathers himself and looks OK to continue.
And what a way to silence the home fans who are so accustomed to winning - or at least not losing - here. In fact, they haven't tasted defeat since November 22, 2016 when they were beaten 3-1 by Juventus.
Well, that is exactly the start Klopp would have been dreaming of. Remember, Liverpool will be guaranteed a place in the last 16 if they can claim a victory this evening. Can their defence hold up?
GOAL! LIVERPOOL ARE AHEAD!
What a start for the Reds! Coutinho delivers the corner to the near post for Wijnaldum who nods the ball to the back post and Firmino is well positioned to apply the finish.
Mane does well to get to the by-line and win a corner as his cross is blocked by Lenglet.
There is a terrific atmosphere in Seville for this winner takes all encounter. Fasten your seatbelts, this is going to be a cracker!
The players are out on the pitch and we are now only moments from kick-off!
There is a lot at stake tonight, so which club will handle the pressure?
Eduardo Berizzo has guided his Sevilla side to four wins in their last five games, and they are currently fifth place in La Liga.
No visiting team has won at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuan in over a year.
It's filling up nicely...
Talking about danger men, Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah is enjoying a rich vein of form, having scored eight goals in his last six appearances.
“In the group stage you cannot choose where you get the points from but when you get to the end the more decisive the games are,” said Klopp.
“It felt quite average when we conceded a goal at home to Sevilla and if we had not conceded this goal the situation would have been even better.
“This is the game, against Sevilla in Seville. They are a very experienced football-playing team and that's the Champions League.”
Liverpool are unbeaten so far in the competition and Klopp has done well to address the defensive problems his side were plagued with at the start of the season. In fact, the Reds have conceded only two goals in their last seven games.
How do you feel the game will go tonight?
DANGER MAN - Wissam Ben-Yedder (Sevilla)
The French forward has four goals already in the Champions League, having scored a hat-trick in the 3-0 win over Maribor and also getting on the scoresheet when Sevilla drew 2-2 with Liverpool at Anfield in September.
Liverpool can also claim a place in the latter stages of the Champions League with three points. Jurgen Klopp's side are top of Group E after four games played - two points ahead of third-placed Spartak Moscow who drew 1-1 with Maribor earlier today.
The Reds make two changes to the side that beat Southampton 3-0 on Saturday, with goalkeeper Loris Karius replacing Simon Mignolet and Joe Gomez coming in for Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Sevilla are second in Group E and can seal their place in the last 16 of the competition with a win this evening.
They make three changes to the side that beat Celta Vigo 2-1 on Saturday, with Gabriel Mercado taking the place of Sebastien Corchia up front, Wissam Ben Yedder gets the nod over Luis Muriel and Ever Banega starts ahead of Franco Vazquez.
