Salzburg forward Erling Haaland believes his side are going to defeat Liverpool tonight in the Champions League.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool must avoid defeat in Austria to secure a place in the knockout rounds of the Champions League.
If Napoli were to defeat Genk at home and Salzburg defeated Liverpool, then that would be the end of the road for the Reds.
Haaland is so confident that Salzburg will progress that he has even provided a scoreline for tonight’s game. He also added that he will score a hat-trick.

Haaland has been in terrific form for Salzburg this season. The striker has scored 28 goals in 21 games in all competitions, which highlights his ability.
However, to make the type of prediction that he has made is quite disrespectful to Klopp’s side, who are currently the reigning champions of Europe.
Not that they need it, but this should give Liverpool even more motivation to make sure Salzburg are eliminated from the competition tonight. The Reds defeated Salzbirg 4-3 at Anfield earlier in the campaign.
