Red Bull Salzburg play hosts to reigning European champions, Liverpool, in Group E clash hoping to win the Matchday Six game to seal a last 16 spot at the expense of their opponents.
On their part, Liverpool have not displayed their invincible Premier League form in the Champions League this season and that explains why the holders are struggling to qualify from their group.
Only a draw is enough for Liverpool to secure their spot in the knockout stage.

Players like Joel Matip, Nathaniel Clyne, Adam Lallana, Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Dejan Lovren might miss the Red Bull Salzburg game.
Matip has an ongoing knee problem and won’t be back until the end of this month thus ruling him out of the Champions League clash.
Clyne is a long-term injury absentee and he’s not expected in the Liverpool first team until next year as he recuperates from the knee injury sustained during preseason.
Dejan Lovren and Georginio Wijnaldum are doubts about the Red Bull Salzburg game with muscular tightness and slight thigh injury respectively.
Adam Lallana and Fabinho will miss the Red Bull Salzburg game with various injuries.
