Liverpool fell behind just five minutes into their Champions League return after Dejan Lovren's slip allowed Wissam Ben Yedder to put Sevilla ahead with a simple finish.
However, a more detailed look at the opportunities themselves reveals Liverpool's undoing wasn't simply profligacy in front of goal, but willingness to shoot over big-chance creation costing them dear.
Liverpool should have put the contest to bed in the remainder of the first half but only had one more goal to show for their dominance. "We found it tough in the first half". Lovren, who didn't feature in the 5-0 hammering at the hands of Man City last weekend, failed to clear a simple cross which led to the opening goal.
It was the evening Liverpool hosted the Swiss champions Basel in their final Champions League Group B match requiring a victory to progress to the knockout rounds. The Brazilian fired his effort against the post.
Liverpool eventually leveled matters in the when Firmino turned home Alberto Morena's cross from the left flank.
Mane, Salah and Firmino all fired shots high or wide before Sergio Rico, pretty much without knowing how he did it, blocked Georginio Wijnaldum's well-struck drive.
"The second, I have absolutely no clue how they came through that, to be honest, I have to see that again". Liverpool had Joe Gomez sent off in added time as Muriel almost fired a Sevilla victor during a frantic finish.
The Spaniard was a threat in attack against his hometown club and set up Roberto Firmino's equaliser but was less than impressive for both Sevilla goals.
