Liverpool lineup vs Red Bull Salzburg: Liverpool will be hoping to claim their first victory in this season’s Champions League.
Liverpool will take on Red Bull Salzburg at Anfield on Wednesday. The Reds went down to Napoli in the opening day two weeks before, while their opponents were thumping 6-1 winners over Genk.
The Reds will be wary of their opponents, who will be hoping to scrap something out of this game to make life tougher for the reigning Champions. Liverpool, on the other hand, will be desiring no lesser than three points and they will be prepared to take the game to their opponent’s half and attack.
The hosts have made a remarkable start to their Premier League season with seven victories on a bounce. It’s not a secret that the Reds have been lucky at times, although it could change if they’re playing at full-throttle. Since they have various options on the bench, it could be helpful for Jurgen Klopp to rotate his squad.
Red Bull Salzburg are currently leading the pack in the Austrian Bundesliga, with eight victories and one draw out of nine games. It has been a phenomenal start as Jesse Marsch’s side have bagged 40 goals from paltry nine games in the domestic league. They have also stayed relentless in the European competition by scoring six past Genk in the previous game week.
Liverpool are the utmost favourites, but their opponent, with the attacking methodology, can cause severe disruption.
As we discuss this game, we shall look at Liverpool’s injuries, suspensions, and predicted eleven.
Liverpool’s Alisson Becker is expected to be fit only after the international break. Nathaniel Clyne is another absentee from this squad. Sadio Mane and Joel Matip did not train on Monday and Klopp remains hopeful that the duo will be back in time to face Salzburg.
There are no suspensions for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool.
Liverpool: Adrian, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil Van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Fabinho, Gini Wijnaldum, Naby Keita, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino.
