Liverpool had a very bad start in the Champions League, as they didn’t even score in the loss against Napoli. That was their only loss of the season though, as they are doing a tremendous jobs in all other competitions. Liverpool will now look for nothing other that a win when they will host Salzburg on Wednesday. Salzburg were spectacular in the opener, as they destroyed Genk by a massive score.

Spread: Liverpool -1.5
Total: 3.5 Goals
Liverpool did not deserve such a tough 0-2 loss in the premiere against Napoli. The truth is that they deserved to score at least once, but this is soccer. Napoli took the lead at the 82nd minute from the penalty spot, and secured the win with another goal at the stoppage time. That means that Liverpool have lost each of their last four away matches in the group stage of the competition. And they have won just one of their last ten away group matches (1-6-3). But they are really strong at home, where they are undefeated in their last 22 European matches (16-0-6).
On the other hand, Salzburg have been trying (and failing) to reach the group stages of the Champions League for quite some time now. And this season they did it, and even started off with a massive win. They utterly destroyed Genk in the first match by a huge 2-6, scoring a whopping five goals in the first half. Salzburg have dominated their domestic league, winning it for the sixth consecutive time last season. They have lost their last two European away matches, but lost just two of their previous 17 (9-2-6). When it comes to the Champions League, Salzburg are undefeated in their last seven matches, but all were for the qualifiers (4-0-3).
Liverpool will definitely look to win this match, and score as many goals as possible. The 0-2 loss to Napoli has put them in the wrong spot, and Liverpool are expected to come out with a bang here. Salzburg showed that they have a lot of quality up front and could cause problems. But I am confident that Liverpool can cover the spread here.
