RB Salzburg’s Erling Braut Haaland has fired a warning shot to Liverpool ahead of their crunch Champions League showdown on December 10.
Liverpool were held to a 1-1 draw on Wednesday night at home to Napoli, meaning they require a draw over Salzburg in the final group game to seal their progression to the last-16 of the Champions League.

‘They are the world’s best team,’ the striker, who has attracted heavy interest from Manchester United, said following the final whistle on Wednesday night.
‘But we know we are good at home and if we are at our top level, we have a chance.’
Salzburg currently sit third in Group E, just three points behind Liverpool and if they beat Jurgen Klopp’s side, while Napoli overcome Genk at home, then the Reds are likely to go crashing out.
