An error from Dejan Lovren allowed the visitors to take the lead through a well taken shot by Wissam Ben Yedder.

But a lovely move saw Roberto Firmino hit back midway through the first half, before Mohamed Salah's deflected strike made it 2-1 before the break.

Firmino had the chance to double his tally from the penalty spot, but could only strike the post, and that proved costly as Correa finally got the awaited equalizer for Sevilla.
