Salzburg 0-2 Liverpool
It was a frantic start to the game, with the hosts looking confident from the get-go and trying to take the game to Liverpool.
Alisson was tested by Hwang Hee-chan’s close-range effort but the Reds had early chances of their own. Mohamed Salah had his low shot saved by Cican Stankovic before Mane flashed just wide of the post from outside the box.
Liverpool kept the ball well as the half wore on and put together some good moves, but they had to be careful on the break with Jesse Marsch’s side looking equally capable on the ball.
Liverpool should have taken the lead themselves when Naby Keita found space in midfield and played in Salah. However, the Egyptian fluffed his lines and dragged his shot wide of the near post.
A quick Liverpool counter just before the break saw Keita’s close-range effort blocked by Stankovic, with the Guinean unable to turn in the rebound.
Liverpool had two glorious opportunities through Salah in the opening minutes after the restart, however, the Egyptian was unable to get a shot on target.
Liverpool were then dealt an injury blow when Lovren went down injured, with Joe Gomez coming on to replace him in the back-line.
Nevertheless, Klopp’s side got the crucial opener as Mane found Keita with an excellent dinked ball, with the midfielder making no mistake with his header to put Liverpool 1-0 up.
A minute later, Salah made up for his missed chances as he doubled the Reds’ lead, eluding the onrushing Stankovic and finishing from the tightest of angles to put Liverpool in control of the tie.
Liverpool kept the home side at bay for the rest of the match whilst having a few chances themselves to extend their lead. The Reds dominated the ball as they managed the game well to see out a comfortable victory in the end.
Liverpool are next in action against Watford on Saturday as they look to continue their impressive run in the Premier League with another win at Anfield.
Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Keita, Salah, Mane, Firmino.
