Liverpool vs Red Bull Salzburg Match Preview
Salzburg have already started making the most of their lengthy wait to play Champions League group-stage football – but look unlikely to have any joy against the trophy holders.
The wealthy Austrian club have become their country’s dominant team since being taken over by energy drink giant Red Bull in 2005 and yet they took time to get their wings in Europe’s elite club competition, continually missing out agonisingly in the play-off round.
But this term, their nation’s UEFA club co-efficient ranking had risen sufficiently for them to get into the group stage automatically, this being the first season they have mixed it with the continent’s elite since 1994-95 and only the second time ever.
And just to celebrate, Jesse Marsch’s side began with a 6-2 rout of Genk in which teenage Norwegian striker Erling Haaland announced himself on the Champions League stage with a brilliant first-half hat-trick.
However, it will nevertheless be difficult for Salzburg to advance from this group ahead of either Napoli or reigning champions Liverpool, who began the defence of their European title with a 2-0 defeat in Italy.
The Reds, who are carrying all before them in the Premier League, will know they have little margin for error now until they have got plenty of Group E points on the board and with a supreme ongoing record at Anfield, it would be a big shock if they failed to win this game.
