I like Sevilla but a win would be really great for Liverpool. Could kick-start a new period of success. Possibly.
While it’s understandable that the author below would argue fewer games would actually benefit Liverpool domestically, that alone doesn’t mean losing the final would be worth it. The Champions League schedule wouldn’t be as tasking as the Europa League one Liverpool had this season, plus a lot of the injuries come down, possibly, to Klopp pushing players during the middle of the season, an EPL season at that, without the winter break he’s used to. A full summer should help rectify that, along with the addition of a couple of players. Yes, the team may not be torn apart but higher quality additions interested in the UCL would help with depth both in Europe and domestically. Liverpool is a side that should be challenging on all fronts regular. The one season off one season on in Europe won’t cut it for a club of their stature and there’s no guarantee that no European football means a chance at the title increases.
