Red Bull Salzburg vs Liverpool Match Preview
Liverpool’s grip on the Champions League trophy has been unexpectedly loosened during this season’s group stage, but they are backed to fully tighten it again by winning in Austria.
The Reds are only 3/1 to be knocked out this week, for those are the odds about a Red Bull Salzburg victory that would put them level with the title-holders in the Group E table. As the reverse fixture finished 4-3, if Liverpool lost it would need to be via a 5-4 or bigger scoreline to keep them ahead of the Austrian champions on the head-to-head rule.
That is, of course, assuming Napoli secure the other automatic qualification place from this pool by winning at home to Genk, and that is a 1/6 chance.
But if the runaway Premier League leaders avoid defeat, they will be fine – and we think they can go a step further and actually win at the Red Bull Arena despite their hosts being prolific goalscorers there.
Quite simply, Jurgen Klopp’s side are unstoppable at present, although it will be interesting to see how they cope with the demands of nine matches in five different competitions over the next 27 days.
Salzburg’s coveted teenage goal machine Erling Braut Haaland is up to 24 goals for the campaign and sure to be a threat here, but Liverpool are as good as it gets anywhere in the world just now and can keep their trophy defence alive with an eighth victory in nine games.
