After scoring 3 goals in 36 minutes by Sadio Mane,Andrew Robertson and Mo Salah, The Reds were shocked as Salzburg scored 3 goals back in 21 minutes leveling both sides until Roberto Firmino flicked a header in which Salah converted into a goal changing the score line to 4-3 putting Liverpool ahead of Salzburg, the Premier League leaders held on to the lead to claim their first 3 points in the UEFA champions league after loosing 2-0 against Napoli in their opening match in the competition.
Liverpool has won 12 of their home matches in all competitions and they are now unbeaten in 20 Home matches in Europe under Jurgen Klopp.
Klopp said: “The first 30 minutes was some of the best football we played so far, I would say, against a very good organised team with a clear identity. We did everything that they don’t like on high speed, scored the three goals, could have scored more.
“They changed the system – that’s allowed and not really a problem usually but tonight it was for us. We changed, for some reason, the approach. Some were in a controlling mood, some were in an attacking mood, and other positions were too hectic.
“The other problem was that we tried to finish our situations off through the middle of the park. They had one midfielder less in the defence because they took a little bit more risk, left a No.10 between the lines, and we still tried to push through the centre.
“[We] lost the balls there, they passed the ball to the 10 and he could turn at the back of Fabinho: counter-attack. That changed the momentum of the game.”
