RB Salzburg 0-0 Liverpool LIVE: Score and Champions League latest updates

The draw for the round of 32 is scheduled to take place on Monday, December 16 in Nyon and that's when teams who finished third in their respective Champions League groups drop down. This includes defending champions Liverpool who were held to a 1-1 draw against Napoli last time out and now must avoid defeat against Red Bull Salzburg or hope Napoli lose at home to Genk. Group E: Liverpool, Napoli or Red Bull Salzburg The Gunners know first hand what it's like to face a team who has dropped down from the Champions League and will have to bare that in mind should they qualify for the round of 32 later this week. For the third successive season, Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool players need a result to secure a passage to the last 16. Alisson starts in goal behind a back five of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Dejan Lovren, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson.

The Reds only need a point to progress and, with Jurgen Klopp having rotated in recent games, it's clear this is the big one. My team (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Milner, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane. Provided Liverpool don't do anything silly in Salzburg, Champions League progression should prove be straightforward despite the final game group-stage dramatics again. Trent Alexander-Arnold returns and, with Joe Gomez still out of sorts, Dejan Lovren fights off cramp to start alongside Virgil van Dijk at the heart of defence. My team (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Keita, Henderson, Milner; Salah, Firmino, Mane.

James Milner is usually the man for this kind of occasion, but having started the past two matches I think he'll be rested for this one as captain Jordan Henderson leads out the reigning champions.

Liverpool have some work to do given their record of losing four of their past five away UEFA Champions League group stage matches. Team news Naby Keita was the unexpected inclusion in midfield for Liverpool's final Champions League group match against Red Bull Salzburg in Austria.

Erling Braut Haaland starts up front for RB Salzburg as they make four changes from their 5-1 win over Swarovski Tirol on Saturday. Liverpool lead Group E on 10 points, one ahead of Napoli with Salzburg third on seven. If Napoli win or draw, a Salzburg victory will send Liverpool into the Europa League, unless the defending champions score at least four times in a one-goal loss. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp refuses to entertain the thought a Champions League exit will enhance their bid for a first domestic title in 30 years. Dejan Lovren is fit enough to start while attacking trio Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are reunited.
