Salzburg +0.75 (-130)
Salzburg have been one of the surprise packages of the Champions League this season and they will now face a tough task. In the final Match-day of the group stage they will host Liverpool, and they are looking only for a win that will see them through to the next round.
Liverpool (3-1-1) could not overcome Napoli once again, as they split the points in a 1-1 draw at home in their last match. They have won all the other matches but have a draw and a loss against Napoli. Liverpool are currently at the top of the group with 10 points, Napoli have 9 and Salzburg have 7. A loss here could potentially drop them to the 3rd spot and the Europa League, so Liverpool should be very careful.
Salzburg (2-2-1) were tremendous in their last match, blasting Genk by a massive 4-1 on the road. They have been excellent in this group stage so far, and are a real threat to Liverpool. In the reverse match they came back from three goals behind but eventually lost by 3-4. Salzburg score a TON of goals and also concede a lot, with four of their five matches so far having featured at least five goals.
A simple win against Liverpool here would guarantee Salzburg continuity in the knock-out stages. They have already capped the 3rd place that leads to the Europa League, but they will surely fight for more. Liverpool can qualify to the next round with even a draw here and this is not going to be easy for them.
