Liverpool preparing for Salzburg like it’s a final, says Klopp

Battling an underrated Salzburg team coached by American Jesse Marsch, Liverpool could've led or been trailing at the break.

Liverpool see themselves top their group with Napoli following them into the Champions League Knockout stages.

The Reds require a point from Tuesday's trip to Salzburg to guarantee a place in the last 16 of the Champions League, a competition they won last season with a 2-0 victory over Tottenham. We don't ask for excuses, we know our schedule.

"Salzburg needs to win against us and we are there".

"We are not a typical Champions League victor, we're still ambitious like insane, we will go for everything and run for our lives". If Salzburg go through, they deserve and we won't.

'When you're then playing at the start of this whole process for Liverpool it then becomes a confidence that you're going to get a result then it turns into a belief and you know what it's verging on a knowing now.

"I lost many important games over my career, but in the previous year, it has gone better".

The 19-year-old - son of Alfe-Enge - has scored an incredible 28 goals in just 21 appearances this season, and has found the net in every Champions League game he's played in so far.

JURGEN KLOPP has no doubt his Liverpool players can handle "the most intense period of their lives" and has no complaints about their hectic schedule as they bid to keep their Champions League and Premier League title ambitions on track.

The 30-year-old Croatia worldwide central defender started the game against the Cherries, but he was taken off after just 40 minutes. "How do you defend an exceptional striker?"

CBS Sports was with you the entire way, providing analysis, highlights and more. "Under pressure we probably could have used him, but we didn't want to make pressure". This is the sign of a champion player in a champion team, one that aspired to go all the way in Europe.
