Liverpool will continue their UEFA Champions League campaign away from home where they will face Red Bull Salzburg. Liverpool needs a point to progress but if Red Bull Salzburg wins this fixture, they will eliminate the Reds and secure a spot in the second round.
Red Bull Salzburg enter this match in outstanding form having won their previous outing 5-1 at home. Red Bull are clear at the top of the Austrian Bundesliga and the team will hope to transfer that form into the Champions League. As it currently stands, Red Bull Saltzburg have 7 points from their 5 games. It has been a good Champions League campaign but they must produce their best football if they wish to defeat Liverpool.
On the other side of the coin, Liverpool are flying in all competitions. Liverpool played Bournemouth in their previous outing. It was a comfortable win for the Reds as they won 3-0 away from home. Liverpool controlled 74% of the possession and had 21 shots. Mo Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita were the goal scorers for Liverpool. Due to poor results against Napoli, Liverpool are in a situation where they must avoid defeat. Playing away from home is always tough in the Champions League but the Reds will be optimistic about their chances of making the next round.
Liverpool and Red Bull Salzburg played each other earlier in the season at Anfield. It was a high scoring game which Liverpool won 4-3. Mo Salah played extremely well as he scored twice for Liverpool
Red Bull Salzburg are expected to put in a determined performance at home since they enter this match with a realistic chance of eliminating Liverpool and qualifying for the second round. That being said, I see the Reds winning this match. Liverpool look too strong and the Reds have every base covered. I see this being a tight match but the Reds should be good enough to get the 3 points.
