It was a bright opening to the game as the Reds looked threatening through on the right.

But Salzburg took the lead inside the first three minutes as cheaply lost the ball in midfield, allowing Patson Daka to race through and finish past Alisson.

The hosts looked by far the more comfortable side, with Jurgen Klopp's side appearing to have the stuffing knocked out of them following the opener.

Things got even worse for the Reds as another mistake at the back, this time by , gave Daka a free run at Alisson, with the forward bagging his second to make it 2-0 inside fifteen minutes.

Liverpool failed to muster much of a response, with only Sadio Mane showing enough impetus and intensity to match that of Salzburg. The Reds forward was unplayable at times, but Jesse Marsch's side did well to keep him at bay.

Liverpool saw more of the ball as the half wore on, but chances were still sparse for the visitors.

Mane had the best chance of the half as he shot from close-range, but his goal-bound effort was cleared off the line by a defender, summing up the first half from the Reds' perspective.

The second half started much the same as the first as another mix-up at the back nearly gave Daka the chance to notch a hat-trick goal, but he couldn't finish from a tight angle.

Goalkeeper Alex Walke denied Salah with a top save after Mane slid him in, before Salzburg had a golden chance to make it 3-0 through Albert Vallci, who headed wide despite an open Reds net.

Liverpool were dealt a blow as Van Dijk was forced off the pitch with a head injury, with coming on to replace him.

Klopp made a whole host of changes as an entirely different XI took the field for the final 25 minutes, with the likes of , and all getting valuable minutes.

A well-worked move between and saw the latter find Brewster in the box, with the youngster finishing excellently to set up an intriguing final 20 minutes.

Brewster was on the scoresheet again ten minutes later as he levelled the scores with an exceptional half-volley from outside the box, making it three goals in 2 games this pre-season.

Despite a late chance for Harvey Elliott, the Reds couldn't push on as they settled for the draw. Overall, it was a difficult afternoon for Klopp's side, but a valuable run-out nonetheless.
