Liverpool will face RB Salzburg in their fourth pre-season friendly of the summer. The English giants will be facing this Austrian side at their home ground of Red Bull Arena, this Wednesday evening.

Jurgen Klopp’s men beat RB Leipzig by 5-0 in courtesy of 4 second-half goals by the new signing Darwin Nunez. Mo Salah combined with Firmino give the Reds an early lead. That win was their second in a row after a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace in a friendly.

Even though Liverpool’s preparations began after a humbling 4-0 loss to rivals Manchester United, they are much stronger now. This is the final test for Jurgen Klopp’s side before they face Manchester City in the Community Shield, although they do play against Strasbourg at Anfield in another friendly shortly after.

On the other side, RB Salzburg have started their domestic league and they collected 3 points from their first game of the season. They cantered away with their 9th Bundesliga title on the spin last season and the Red Bulls are massive favorites to land more domestic silverware this term.

Matthias Jaissle’s team enrolled pre-season way back in June and have already played two competitive games this season, beating Fuegen by 3-0 in the Austrian Cup before their first league win this season. They played 3 friendly games of which they won and lost half of them.
