RB Salzburg vs. Liverpool: Reds ‘backed to progress in must-win’ game

Published

 

on

It’s all to play for as Liverpool travel to Austria to take on RB Salzburg on Tuesday night. It’s going right down to the wire in Group E, with both sides still able to qualify.

The Reds sit top of the table, one point ahead of Napoli and three ahead of their final opponents. The Italian side host Genk, and so Jurgen Klopp’s travelling side know qualification is in their hands.

The visitors are currently 11/12 to win the game and clinch qualification to the knockout stages. A draw is available at 3/1, with a home win currently 11/4.

The sides last met in October in the reverse fixture at Anfield, where the hosts edged out their determined visitors in a thrilling 4-3 encounter. It’s 40/1 for Liverpool to do the same again on Tuesday evening.

Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and a brace from Mohamed Salah helped secure that important win on Matchday two. The Senegal forward is currently 9/2 to open the scoring once again, with the left-back available at 40/1.

The Egyptian winger is 15/4 to score the game’s opening goal.

But Salzburg striker Erling Braut Haland will certainly have something to say about that. The 19-year-old scored a late goal at Genk last time out to become the first teenager to score in five consecutive appearances in the history of the European Cup and Champions League.

He also became the first player to score eight goals in his first five matches in the competition, overtaking both Diego Costa and Harry Kane who scored seven in the same amount of games.

The formidable forward is currently 9/2 to score first in front of his adoring fans against the defending champions.

Others looking to find the back of the net include Takumi Minamino and Hwang Hee-Chan. Both scored on that memorable night at Anfield, and both will be looking to do something similar this time around. Minamino is currently 8/1 to score the game’s opening goal, with Hee-Chan currently 7/1.

The Reds are yet to keep a clean sheet in the competition this season, and have found shutouts hard to come by in domestic football as well. They can be backed at 3/1 to keep their first of the campaign in Austria.

RB Salzburg are the top scorers in the group, but have also been struggling at the back. They’re currently 6/1 to keep their first clean sheet in this season’s Champions League.
