Liverpool vs Red Bull Salzburg: Betting Tips, Odds & Predictions

Liverpool vs RB Salzburg Champions League
Liverpool vs Red Bull Salzburg, Champions League, Anfield Stadium

The match is over.
Score: 4-3.

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.

Our Betting Tips

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.

Statistics

Head to Head

These two clubs have never faced each other before.

Stats

  • Liverpool have never played RB Salzburg before but they do have a good record against Austrian teams. In seven games they have only ever lost one – and won on four occasions.
  • RB Salzburg scored six in their first Champions League game – that is more than was managed in three of the groups on match day one.
  • Liverpool’s triumph over Spurs in last year’s Champions League final was the club’s sixth title, putting the English Premier League club behind only Real Madrid and Milan in the all-time standings.
  • This is the first time since the club was revamped in 2005 that RB Salzburg have qualified for the group stage of the Champions League. But they did make it to the semi final of the Europa League in 2018 before being knocked out by Marseille.

Our Prediction for Liverpool vs Red Bull Salzburg

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.
