The match is over.
Liverpool were beaten by two late goals on match day one in Naples – but will be expecting to take all three points from the Austrian champions.
Liverpool are heavily favoured to take the points at home – but Salzburg have been impressive in Europe in the last few seasons and scored six in their first group stage match. There could be goals at Anfield.
Liverpool’s defence has been fairly tight in the English Premier League but this young RB Salzburg team are no pushover – and they are able to turn defence into attack seamlessly. Neutrals could be in for a real treat with this match.
If Salzburg are to get anything out of this game then they need to attack straight from kick off and take the game to their hosts. This could mean that the first half is an even affair before Liverpool’s dominance comes through in the second half.
Head to Head
These two clubs have never faced each other before.
Liverpool to win
RB Salzburg will cause more problems for both Liverpool and Napoli than most people believed when the Champions League group stage draw was made. But Liverpool are usually too strong for opponents at Anfield and should take all three points here.
