Liverpool play host to RB Salzburg in game two of the Champions League group stage tonight. After defeat at Napoli, the Reds are already in a must-win situation to keep pace at the top of Group E.
Popular pundit Charlie Nicholas has predicted Liverpool will win and do so comfortably at Anfield.
The former Arsenal man told Sky Sports. “They (RB Salzburg) are going to one of the grounds with the best atmosphere in Europe on Champions League nights. If I were Jurgen Klopp I would change a couple of things…It will be a very comfortable night, regardless.”
An easy night is ahead if Nicholas’s comments are anything to go by. He followed up by predicting Liverpool would run out 3-0 winners against the Austrian Champions.
That is a bold prediction from the Arsenal legend as RB Salzburg have been impressive in the early parts of the season. The Austrian side have been relentless in front of goal, so if this prediction comes true Liverpool would be the first team to stop them scoring all season.
Liverpool fans will be hoping for the comfortable night’s work predicted by Nicholas at Anfield.
The Reds would be back on track in the Champions League and able to turn attentions to the Premier League this weekend.
