Sevilla coach Eduardo Berizzo is hopeful former Liverpool forward Iago Aspas will have taught his side plenty of lessons ahead of facing the Reds' frighteningly quick attack in Tuesday's crunch Champions League clash.
Liverpool sit top of Group E and will qualify for the knockout stages with a win at Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan, while a point will be enough should Spartak Moscow lose to Maribor.
Jurgen Klopp's side boast plenty of talent in forward positions, with Mohamed Salah's direct running and speed causing havoc in Saturday's 3-0 victory over Southampton, a match in which the Egyptian scored twice.
Berizzo recognises that his side have to be wary of Liverpool's pace, but believes facing Aspas in Sevilla's 2-1 defeat of Celta Vigo at the weekend will come in handy.
"He's [Salah] a really fast player, he takes advantage of that speed when he finds free room in the midfield, when Firmino takes a step back he finds room to run diagonally," he told a pre-match news conference.
"[A bit] like Iago Aspas did in the last match, maybe what happened against Celta will help [left-back] Sergio [Escudero] understand a player like Salah with the characteristic of being really fast - a player that in the moments he goes forward becomes really dangerous.
"This does not only apply to Sergio but to all the defenders, they have to scale their position in order to help as fast as possible if there's a one-versus-one situation.
"We have to do that and keep the ball, if we lose it then it has to be far from our goal to prevent Liverpool to counter-attack."
Victory for Sevilla would significantly improve their chances of qualifying, with the Liga side second in the group on seven points.
In the reverse tie, Sevilla earned a 2-2 draw at Anfield and Berizzo believes the key to victory is nullifying Liverpool's counter-attacking prowess.
"The match back in Liverpool was difficult because they made quick transitions between defence and attack, that speed made things difficult to us, every time they got the ball from us we were unable to defend," he added.
"We have to watch out for that. I think one of the keys of this match will be the right use of the ball and how deep we go with our attacks to prevent Liverpool from counter-attacking.
"With their fast strikers, also the key will be in how we move the ball around the field, trying to not lose it and [when] we do it has to be next to their goal or by finishing our attacks with a shot, that's how we can prevent counter-attacks."
