Liverpool return to Champions League action on Wednesday night when they welcome Salzburg to Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s men will be looking to return to winning ways in Europe, having previously lost 2-0 away to Carlo Ancelotti’s Napoli last month.

As reigning European champions, the Reds face a lot of expectation ahead of their first game back at Anfield – let’s not forget, the last time Klopp’s side played at home in Europe was the astonishing 4-0 win over Barcelona.

Given that fact, they will be eager to return to Anfield with a win against Salzburg, who start Matchday Two top of the group.

The Austrian side’s 6-2 demolition of Genk on the opening day will provide Liverpool with plenty of food for thought.

Their clear attacking intent will be a key focus for Klopp’s side, and in addition to an impressive opening day win in the Champions League, the Austrian side are unbeaten domestically with eight wins and one draw.

In that time, they have scored 40 goals, so we should be expecting plenty of action on Merseyside.

However, Liverpool have been unbeatable at home since a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea in the Carabao Cup in September 2018 – such a stat shows just how difficult this task could be for the Austrian side.

Ahead of the Champions League clash, we outline five key battles on the pitch.
