RB Salzburg FC vs Liverpool FC Soccer Betting Tips
Friendly match between Liverpool FC and Red Bull Salzburg
The reigning English champions FC Liverpool will play their second friendly match in Austria and will face serial champions Red Bull Salzburg. The two teams already know each other as they only met in the UEFA Champions League group stage last year. The English were able to win both games, but especially at Anfield Road the Salzburg team showed a courageous performance and scored no less than 3 goals. Both teams should be about the same in preparation because both the Austrian Bundesliga and the English Premier League start the new season in mid-September.
The last season of FC Red Bull Salzburg
Salzburg won their fifth championship title in a row in Austria last season. In doing so, you had more difficulties than in previous years. In the regular season, LASK from Linz was the toughest opponent of Salzburg and after a short period of weakness in the championship group, Rapid Vienna had a small chance to take the lead. Ultimately, however, Salzburg showed strong performances in the end and with 50 points they had a lead of 12 points on Rapid Vienna. The final balance was 22 wins, 8 draws, and 2 defeats. With 110 goals, they were among the most dangerous offensives in Europe. On average they scored 3.31 goals per game.
We have summarized other important statistics for the past season here:
Victory rate in own stadium: 88%
Games over 2.5 goals: 69%
Goals per home game: 3.38
Games unbeaten in the league: 11
Games where the first hit was scored: 25
The previous friendlies
In contrast to Liverpool FC, Salzburg has already played 4 test matches in the past 3 weeks. The first ended with a 2-2 draw against the Slovenian representative Bravo. This was followed by two wins against OGC Nice (4: 1) and Ceske Budejovice (2: 0). They suffered a setback last week in the game against Ajax Amsterdam. In their stadium, they had no chance against the Dutch and lost 4-1. It was the first friendly defeat of the season. It is interesting that in 3 of the 4 games more than 3.5 goals were scored and Salzburg could only hold the zero once. A high over/under bet could, therefore, pay off.
The previous entries and exits
FC Red Bull Salzburg is one of the best training clubs in Europe. Accordingly, however, at the end of a good season, they lose one or two top performers. In winter you had to cope with the departure of top striker Erling Haaland. In the summer, on the other hand, only one top player was given up, the rest have been kept in Salzburg so far.

The reigning English champion
After 30 years the wait is over as Liverpool FC crowned themselves English champions for the first time since the 1989/90 season. After the Champions League triumph in the 2018/19 season, it is already the second major title in a row. One can, therefore, say that the Reds are currently among the best teams in the world. Since the new season doesn’t start until mid-September, we want to give you a brief overview of the past season.
With a total of 99 points, they were crowned English champions last season. The lead over the 2nd placed Manchester City was 18 points after 38 matchdays. The balance stood at 32 wins, 3 draws and 3 defeats. Also, there is an outstanding goal difference of 85:33 goals. It was the 2nd best offensive and the best defense in the league. Probably the greatest strength, however, was the home games on Anfield. They were the only Premier League team to remain completely unbeaten at home and win 18 of 19 home games. Away they also had the best record of all teams with 14 wins, 2 draws and 3 defeats. After the Corona break, however, things did not go quite as desired, because after the bagged title they only won 4 of the last 7 games. You had to admit defeat twice and in the home game against Burnley FC, you had to accept the only draw.
The previous preparation for the new season
The Premier League season officially ended with the 38th matchday on July 26th, 2020. After that, the players of Liverpool FC were given almost 2 weeks of vacation to get back to training afterward. They have their first training camp in Salzburg, where they also play two important test matches against VfB Stuttgart and Red Bull Salzburg. The first test game took place on August 22nd, 2020. In the game against the German Bundesliga club Stuttgart you could easily prevail 3-0. The goals were scored by Roberto Firmino, Naby Keita, and Rhian Brewster. While coach Jürgen Klopp relied on a very strong first team in the first half, no fewer than 11 substitutions were made in the half. You should, therefore, assume that every player gets his chance in this game.
Liverpool FC against Austrian clubs
In the history of Liverpool FC, there have been eight duels against an Austrian team. They played 2 games each against the GAK, Austria Wien, FC Tirol, and the FC Red Bull Salzburg. The balance sheet speaks for itself, as the Reds won 6 of these 8 duels. Only in the 2004/05 Champions League qualification did they have to admit defeat to the GAK 0: 1 at home. The most recent duels against FC Red Bull Salzburg, however, were won. In autumn 2019, they won a spectacular 4: 3 on Anfield Road and away in Salzburg with a 0: 2.

RB Salzburg FC vs Liverpool FC Soccer Betting Tips
Liverpool FC certainly has the higher quality in the squad and was also able to deliver a convincing performance against VfB Stuttgart. Red Bull Salzburg, on the other hand, seemed a bit overwhelmed in the last game against Ajax Amsterdam. We, therefore, think that the quality of the English will prevail.
