Liverpool recover from remarkable Red Bull Salzburg comeback at Anfield

Liverpool recovered from Red Bull Salzburg’s remarkable three-goal comeback to ultimately record a frenetic 4-3 victory over the Austrian outfit at Anfield this evening.

The hosts looked as though they could be on the end of the type of Champions League comeback they had become famous for in what was their first home game in the competition since arguably the greatest of the lot – their 4-0 semi-final win over Barcelona en route to the trophy last season.

The holders raced into a 3-0 lead within 36 minutes and looked to be cruising to a first win of the campaign following their defeat to Napoli on matchday one, only for Salzburg to demonstrate their attacking prowess as they came roaring back.

Hwang Hee-Chan sparked the comeback with a goal shortly before half time, and further strikes from Takumi Minamino and substitute Erling Haaland completed a famous comeback for the visitors – a mini ‘IstanRedBull’.

The miraculous recovery ultimately proved to be in vain as Mohamed Salah’s second of the night ensured a seven-goal thriller ended in Liverpool’s favour, but Salzburg once again showed that they can be a force in Group E.
