In the UEFA Champions League, Liverpool will play at home at Anfield where they will host Red Bull Salzburg from Austria.
Red Bull Salzburg began their Champions League campaign with a win as they defeated Genk 6-2 at home. Erling Braut Håland was the star performer on that occasion as he scored 3 goals. Over the weekend, Red Bull Salzburg played against Austria Wien. It was a solid performance by Salzburg as they won the match 4-1. While Salzburg have been playing well across the competitions, the team has lacked stability in defense and that has caused the team to concede 10 goals in their 9 matches. With that in mind, Red Bull Salzburg must improve their defense if they wish to compete at Anfield.
On the other side of the coin, Liverpool had a very poor start to their Champions League campaign as they were defeated 2-0 by Napoli. While it was always expected to be a tough match, Liverpool would have expected a better result from the match. With that loss in mind, Liverpool must win this match if they wish to remain favorites to qualify from the group as they could potentially be 6 points behind 2 teams. Liverpool won their Premier League clash over the weekend as they defeated Sheffield United 1-0. The Reds still maintain a perfect record in the Premier League and the team looks very well balanced throughout the pitch.
There have been no recent head-to-head matches between Red Bull Salzburg and Liverpool.
Red Bull Salzburg have shown an ability to play attractive football but I see that cost them in this match. Salzburg lack a defensive base and I see that allowing the likes of Mo Salah and Sadio Mane lots of space and chances. Liverpool have an incredible attack and I see them exploiting the Red Bull Salzburg defense. This should be a high scoring match which Liverpool wins with some ease.
