With everything still left to play for in Group E and a spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Champions League up for grabs, Liverpool will make the trip to Salzburg’s Red Bull Arena on Tuesday evening.
Widening their buffer at the top of the Premier League standings with a 3-0 win over Bournemouth on the South Coast over the weekend, the Reds have now won their last three domestic matches on the bounce and still sit one-point clear at the top of Group E heading into their final contest.
On the flip side, putting in another dominant display and picking up a 5-1 win over Swarovski Tirol, Tuesday’s hosts are once again on course to reclaim their Austrian crown and the mood in their camp remains at a high.
Knowing that another victory in midweek would see them cause a huge upset and land a spot in the knockout stage at the expense on Jurgen Klopp’s side, Red Bull are unbeaten in their last nine matches across all competitions.
With Liverpool picking up a dramatic 4-3 win at Anfield in what turned out to be a seven-goal thriller, you might be interested to know that the Reds can be found at 17/20 with William Hill to land back-to-back victories in midweek.
Red Bull looking to cause an upset
While Red Bull may have eventually fallen to a defeat on Merseyside back in October, the Austrian champions have continued to take Europe by storm this season.
Landing a thumping 4-1 win over Genk in their last Champions League appearance, Jesse Marsch’s men know that a victory in midweek would see them secure a spot in the knockout stage on Tuesday.
Salzburg can be found pencilled in at 7/2 with Betfair to secure a top-two finish in Group E.
If the Austrian outfit are to cause an upset and pick up arguably their biggest scalp in the club’s history, then there is no doubt that Tuesday’s hosts will be calling on 19-year-old sensation Erling Braut Haaland to lead their charge.
Enjoying what has been a famous campaign and linked with a potential move to some of Europe’s biggest clubs, Red Bull’s attacking talisman has remarkably bagged 28 goals in just 21 appearances this season.
Even more impressive and finding the net in each of his Champions League appearances this year, you might be interested to know that Haaland can be found at 31/20 with Coral to extend in his purple patch in midweek.
Klopp demanding a statement
Putting in another thumping display and snatching a 3-0 win away at Bournemouth over the weekend, Jurgen Klopp’s side have continued on what could be a record-breaking campaign for the Reds.
Now holding an eight-point buffer at the top of the Premier League, it is no surprise that they’re once again seen to be a landslide favourite to secure a route out of Group E in midweek.
Knowing a point is enough to grab a spot in the knockout stage, Klopp’s men are priced as low as 1/5 with Paddy Power to secure a top-two finish.
Elsewhere, one man who is expected to be recalled to Klopp’s starting XI on Tuesday night is Liverpool’s own attacking talisman, Sadio Mane.
After missing out on the Reds’ trip to the Vitality over the weekend, the Senegal ace is expected to lead the line alongside Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino.
With three goals in his last four matches on the road, you might be interested to know that Mane can be found at 23/20 with William Hill to make a goalscoring return at the Red Bull Arena in midweek.
