Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is wary of RB Salzburg's threat even as the two sides prepare for a Champions League clash on Wednesday night at Anfield.
The defending champions will be hoping to bounce back from last week's shock 2-0 defeat away to Napoli in the opening group match and will come up against a high-scoring Austrian side.
Salzburg dished out a footballing lesson to Genk in the group opening match with a 6-2 win and were 4-1 winners in the Austrian League match over the weekend over Austria Wien.
"What an incredible team and a superb head coach they have," Klopp wrote about RB Salzburg in his column for the official matchday programme.
"[Manager] Jesse [Marsch] has them in a really good way. They are so positive and their results show this. They love to attack and they are a team that attacks with confidence and scores often,"
"Their opening result in the group saw them score six against Genk. Trust me when I tell you that this says more about the quality of Salzburg than it does the weakness of Genk,"
"This weekend, another four goals in a domestic game. Really good side. Excellent players. Great leadership. Tough, tough opponent. Really tough,"
Liverpool warmed up for the match with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Sheffield United over the weekend and will be hoping to grab their first maximum points.
