Red Bull Salzburg (+335) vs Liverpool FC (-136) Soccer Betting Odds / UEFA Champions Lague Predictions

Red Bull Salzburg (+335) vs Liverpool FC (-136) Soccer Betting Odds / UEFA Champions Lague Predictions

Liverpool could still be eliminated from the Champions League, so this match is indeed a knockout match in itself. Liverpool is in first place in Group E with 10 points, Napoli with 9 points and Salzburg with 7 points.

Napoli should beat Genk and if Salzburg could beat Liverpool, the Reds would be "relegated" to the Europa League. The fact that this match is not a dead rubber should be a fantastic night and atmosphere.

Reason for Red Bull Salzburg vs Liverpool UEFA Champions League Picks

Red Bull Salzburg +335

What really impressed Salzburg is how they reached the teams, played without fear and scored many goals. This is no coincidence: Jesse Marsch's men scored more goals than the other three teams in Group E.

The Austrians took a progressive approach in each round. It's great to see Salzburg and they will attack any team, but maybe they are trying to play face to face with the best teams that can be their ruin.

They are a side of pure entertainment and so must also be respected. Expect fireworks as the RB Salzburg has nothing to lose and entertain Liverpool here after scoring the third highest number of goals in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage (3.2 on average per game).

Despite a four-game losing streak to Premier League opposition, Salzburg have lost just one of their last 20 home games in Europe (W15, D4, L1).

Key Player: Norwegian teen phenomenon Erling Braut Håland (SAL) has scored in every UCL group stage match so far, for an incredible eight goals in total.

News: Cican Stankovic has returned from injury after over a month on the sidelines and will replace Carlos in goal on Tuesday night | Rasmus Kristensen will incur a one-match ban in the Champions League if he is booked against Liverpool | Andre Ramalho and Jerome Onguene are in competition to start at centre-back alongside Maximilian Wober.

Liverpool -136

Liverpool would have expected to move quickly into the group stage, especially since they only survived last season. Unfortunately, they did not do anything of the sort. Thanks to some dull efforts, the men of Jurgen Klopp reach the sixth day and need a point, which at first sight seems very likely; but they visit a strong side, so a point is not guaranteed.

Liverpool, European champion, will of course be the favorite to win and beat Salzburg at Anfield 4-3. However, it was a match in which Liverpool was 3-0 and almost tied. Liverpool currently has no other form of existence to win, with 15 of its last 17 general matches (including a shootout win) won since the opening of the group stage. Throughout this stretch, Liverpool has scored at least two goals in 13 games.

Key Player: Alex Oxlade Chamberlain (LIV) has three UCL goals to his name, with two struck from outside the box.

News: Andrew Robertson will incur a one-match ban in the Champions League if he is booked on Tuesday but Jurgen Klopp cannot afford to rest the Scotland international here as Liverpool still need a result to qualify | Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane have all been rested at times over the last two matches but will all start in midweek.
