Sion v Liverpool
Liverpool travel to Switzerland to play Sion tonight needing just a point to ensure they finish the group in first place and avoid a potentially tricky tie against a team falling out of the Champions League. Due to restrictions flying out of Geneva they are not going to be able to return to Liverpool until early on Friday morning which will have implications on their preparation for Sunday's game aganst West Brom at Anfield.
Due to this and the fact that Liverpool have already qualified for the knockout stages I think Jurgen Klopp may opt to leave a few of the bigger name players at home, or certainly at least on the bench. Philippe Coutinho is back training now but he surely won't be risked and Daniel Sturridge has picked up yet another injury so will not travel.
Sion are not performing particularly well in their domestic competition but they are an extremely good cup team and I think they can cause Liverpool problems tonight. They are an attractive looking 3/1 to win the match but I like the look of the 17/10 in the 'draw no bet' market as this will give us a bit of insurance and our money back if the match does end in a draw. Liverpool would be happy with this outcome as mentioned above so it would not be a huge surprise if this did happen.
Cyclop for David Dennis looked the certain winner last time out at Market Rasen before falling when we in control. He runs from the same mark here today in similar conditions and although this is a slightly better race, there doesn't appear to be any reason for this useful looking four year old to win here presuming that he gets a clear round. I can't see that there is much in this field that will stay with him and as long as he is ready to go after his fall last week, he could be the stand out selection today.
