Klopp heaps praise on Salzburg ahead of Anfield showdown

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.
