Liverpool v Salzburg

Liverpool welcome Salzburg to Anfield looking to try and win their first Champions League match of the season.

The Reds were undone late on against Carlo Ancelotti’s men in a match very similar to last season’s group stage game against the same opponents.
Goals from Dries Mertens and Fernando Llorente were enough to sink Jurgen Klopp’s men who were subdued and way below their best at the Stadio San Paolo.
The Reds though were given a fairly straightforward group on paper when the draw was made and their toughest assignment has most likely been and gone already.
They are now set to face Red Bull Salzburg, who battered Genk 6-2 in their opening game.
Liverpool only narrowly beat Sheffield United at the weekend with Georginio Wijnaldum’s fortuitous goal keeping up their 100% Premier League record.
Klopp may be forced into making changes though, with Joel Matip suffering an unspecified injury against the Blades at the weekend.
He will be assessed though Xherdan Shaqiri is still out injured and won’t play.
Alisson Becker is also still out injured with Klopp indicating he will take things cautiously with the Brazilian.
Salzburg’s victory was helped in no uncertain terms by Erling Haaland who stole the show with a hat trick but the Austrian side may be dealt a huge blow as he is a doubt for the match through illness.
Even with him in the side, it is likely to be an almighty task for them as Liverpool have not been beaten at home in a European competition since October 2014 when Real Madrid were the visitors.

Liverpool v RB Salzburg

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah have settled their on-field differences and are ready to get Liverpool’s Champions League campaign up and running.

Liverpool may be flying in the Premier League, winning all seven fixtures to take them to the top of the table, but they slipped up against Napoli in their opening Champions League game.

A 2-0 defeat for the defending champions was not the start Klopp was looking for, but they get the chance to bounce back when Salzburg visit on Wednesday.

It will not be easy though as Salzburg should be full of confidence after they hammered Genk 6-2 in Matchday One and will be looking to build on that result on Merseyside.

That result against Genk was no fluke. They like to score goals and have fired home 40 in nine games this season as they sit top of the Austrian Bundesliga.

Klopp knows anything other than three points could leave them with a lot to do to make it out of the group.

“We have to start winning and we should not waste time,” said Klopp. “We can’t wait for scoring points. We need to get points on Wednesday.”

Salzburg’s dangerman is Erling Braut Haaland, the son of former Leeds United and Manchester City star Alfe Inge.

The 19-year-old has scored 17 goals this season, including a hat-trick against Genk, but missed the win over Austria Vienna at the weekend because of illness. The Austrians are hopeful he will be fit though and Liverpool will have to keep a close eye on him.

Liverpool will be without Joel Matip, who picked up an injury at the weekend, so Joe Gomez will slot in alongside Virgil van Dijk in the heart of the Reds defence.

The game will come too soon for Alisson Becker and Xherdan Shakiri, who have both had calf injuries.

    Liverpool 4-3 Red Bull Salzburg

    Date published: 10/2/2019 11:34:09 PM

    Liverpool 4-3 Red Bull Salzburg

    Liverpool held on to claim their first Champions League win of the season after a thrilling 4-3 Group E victory against Red Bull Salzburg at Anfield.

    The defending European champions boasted one change to the side that won 1-0 at Sheffield United in the Premier League as Joe Gomez comes in for Joel Matip at the back, Red Bull Salzburg’s in-form striker Erling Haaland had to settle for a place on the bench after he missed the Austrian side’s game at the weekend with illness.

    Salzburg started brightly but Liverpool almost got their noses in front on eight minutes when Trent Alexander-Arnold got behind the defence and looked to tee up Roberto Firmino, but Jerome Onguene got enough on the ball to take it away from the Brazilian.

    It was 1-0 a minute later when Sadio Mane struck against his former club as he exchanged passes with Firmino and coolly slotted his seventh goal of the season past Cican Stankovic.

    Liverpool continued to look comfortable with their lead and they eventually extended it on 25 minutes when Andrew Robertson started a flowing move with a surging run, before running towards the near post where he met Alexander-Arnold’s subsequent cross and finished with aplomb.

    Salzburg went close to pulling a goal back just after the half-hour when Trent-Alexander played Takumi Minamino onside as he collected a pass from Dominik Szoboszlai and forced a decent save from Adrian at his front post.

    However, it was 3-0 to the Reds on 36 minutes when Mane raced away down the left and picked out Firmino in the middle. Stankovic managed to parry his effort but the rebound rolled out to Mohamed Salah six yards from goal and he made no mistake.

    Salzburg did manage to reduce the deficit three minutes later when Hee-Chan Hwang managed to cut inside past Virgil van Dijk and blasted a strike beyond the dive of Adrian.

    Adrian almost gifted Salzburg a second early in the second half when Patson Daka chased down his attempted clearance the ball rebounded off him and just wide of the goal.

    Hwang then fired wide as Salzburg continued to press, while Mane was off-target after meeting a Robertson cross in the centre of the area on 54 minutes.

    It was game-on two minutes later when Hwang got in behind Alexander-Arnold down the left and he picked out Minamino who smashed an impressive volley beyond Adrian.

    Szoboszlai should have equalised moments later, but Salzburg completed their remarkable comeback on 61 minutes when Minamino tuned provider from the right as he teed up Haaland to tap-in the equaliser with his first touch after stepping off the bench.

    Liverpool did turn the tide back in their favour and they managed to get back in front on 69 minutes when a clever flick from Firmino played in Salah and the Egyptian lifted his effort over Stankovic.

    Salzburg pushed the Reds to try and find another equaliser, but Jurgen Klopp’s men held on to join their opponents on three points in the group, while Napoli are a point better off at the top.
