Salzburg has fulfilled its mission and comes to life and death against Liverpool28-11-2019
Salzburg expectedly picked up three points from visiting Group E outsider Genk after winning 4-1. Patson Dhaka (43 `) and Takumi Minimino (45 `) gave the guests a comfortable advance with two quick goals before the break. Hi-Chan Juan solved everything with a third goal in the 69th minute. Mbwana herself (85 `) returned one hit for Genk, and the great talent of the guests Erling Holland did not miss to sign in this match, forming the final result. Thus, the Austrian team maintained its chances of qualifying for the eliminations in the Champions League. For that to happen, Salzburg must beat the Liverpool leader at home in the last round.
Salzburg dominated before the break, but zero equality was maintained for a long time. Dhaka missed a good opportunity for the visitors in the 35th minute when he fired over the door from a clean position. Three minutes later, Paintsil squandered the best chance for Genk after receiving a penalty shot from De Nore and firing to the left corner, but Carlos responded well and saved.
It came to the 43rd minute when Dominic Soboslani fired directly from a foul. His shot was blocked, but then he made another one, after which Genk Cooke`s guard intervened very poorly and dropped the ball. Daka responded quickly and punished the mistake - 0:1. Two minutes later, the guests decided almost everything in their favor, after a counterattack by Salzburg ended with a precision diagonal shot of Minimino - 0:2. In the 63rd minute the hoststhey were out of luck, as a blow to Devasta hit the beam with his head. Six minutes later, Hi-Chan Juan scored the third goal after striking a near-beam cross from the left by Erling Holland, who appeared as a reserve seven minutes earlier. Holland himself scored 1/4 hour before the end, but the hit was canceled for an ambush.
Five minutes before the end, Genk nevertheless scored a goal in honor through Mbwana herself, who took advantage of Carlos` mistake. In the 87th minute Holland scored on duty after receiving from Mvepu and firing exactly for the final 1:4.
Both Salzburg victories in the group were scored against Genk. In the first game the Austrian team defeated the same opponent 6:2.
