Rb Salzburg’s star striker Erling Haaland reckons Liverpool could become his latest victim.
The young Norwegian striker has pummelled 28 goals already this season, including eight in just five Champions League matches – an outrageous return for a 19-year-old.
Liverpool face his Austrian side away from home, knowing a win will see us top Champions League Group E, a draw will likely see us through in 2nd, with a defeat sending us into the dreaded Europa League.
According to Give Me Sport, a reporter asked Haaland: “What’s your prediction for tomorrow?”
“3-1 to Salzburg,” he replied…
Journalist: “And you score all the three goals?”
Haaland reminds us of Harry Kane. He isn’t necessarily the fastest, but he’s big and strong and absolutely loves getting into the box and on the end of any type of delivery.
As a finisher, he’s lethal and his goal record this term is approaching farcical. He has more than Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino put together!
But the key for us is to stop him getting the ball in the first place. That’s why Jurgen Klopp will surely field his trusted midfield: Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum – with Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain options off the bench if we’re losing.
