Haaland is certainly a huge threat to Liverpool’s defence as the young forward has found the net in every Champions League match in his debut season, a record which is not even matched by Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.
Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp has also lauded the talent of Haaland and admitted that he will be having plans for the fierce Salzburg attack.
It’s a must win game for Liverpool, as their loss can certainly jeopardize their qualification into the next round of the competition.
The German manager showed great rotation in his squad without sacrificing points in the Premier League and would be seen with full fledged action in the game tonight.
