Salzburg and Liverpool are backed to serve up an open encounter in their final UEFA Champions League Group E match at the Red Bull Arena. The Reds edged a seven goal thriller in the reverse fixture and with both teams needing something from Tuesday’s clash to progress, I am tipping a similar outcome here.

Salzburg Form

Salzburg were held to a 1-1 draw at Admira in an Austrian Bundesliga match on Saturday. They fell behind early in the first half but struck the equaliser through Hwang Hee-Chan.

The Austrians gave themselves a chance of qualifying for the round of 16 after claiming a 4-1 victory at Genk in their previous Champions League outing. Jesse Marsch's men need an outright victory from Tuesday’s clash to progress but have failed to win in three of their last four matches in the competition, including a 3-2 home defeat to Napoli.

Goals are not a problem for Salzburg who have produced over 3.5 goals in four of their five Champions League matches. Erling Haaland leads the line brilliantly with eight goals in the competition but they are often let down by poor defending having conceded 11 times in five group stage fixtures.

Salzburg will be without a number of players with forward Sekou Koita out with an abdominal problem. Alexander Walke (fractured foot), Patrick Farkas (cruciate problems) and Antoine Bernede (tibia fracture) are all ruled out.

Liverpool Form

Liverpool travel to Salzburg off the back of a 3-0 victory at Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita put them two up in the first half while Mohamed Salah added the third after the break.

The Reds need to avoid defeat to qualify for the round of 16 of the Champions League with after they were held 1-1 at home by Napoli last time out. They have won three of their last four matches in the competition.

Liverpool have consistently shown their quality in attack with Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all impressing. They have not been particularly convincing defensively in the competition though, conceding in every game including three goals in the reverse fixture against Salzburg.

Liverpool News

With Liverpool in the middle of a hectic December schedule, Jurgen Klopp has shown a willingness to rotate his squad in recent weeks. Sadio Mane is expected to feature having sat out the win at Bournemouth but Joel Matip and Fabinho are out with injury.

Salzburg vs Liverpool Head to Head

Liverpool and Salzburg have met once, Liverpool claiming a 4-3 victory in the reverse fixture against Salzburg at Anfield. Mohamed Salah netted a brace with Sadio Mane and Andrew Robertson also on target for the Reds while Hwang Hee-Chan, Takumi Minamino and Erling Haaland got the goals for Salzburg.

Salzburg vs Liverpool Betting Odds

Salzburg are outsiders at odds of 3.80 while a Liverpool are favourites to win in Austria at odds of 1.80. A draw is offered at odds of 4.20 at bet365.

Having produced a seven-goal thriller in the reverse fixture, a punt in the goals market should be considered. BTTS is priced at 1.44, over 2.5 goals is valued at 1.36 while over 3.5 goals is paying 2.00 and over 4.5 goals is set at odds of 3.40.

Salzburg vs Liverpool Match Up

Salzburg have impressed in attack, led by Erling Haaland, who has scored in every Champions League match this season. With Hwang Hee-Chan and Takumi Minamino providing support, the Austrians have enough firepower to trouble the Liverpool defence.

Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have also been among the goals for Liverpool in the Champions League. They will be confident of getting past a leaky Salzburg backline on Tuesday.
