Players to watch out

Mohamad Salah (Liverpool)

Salah doesn’t require any formal introduction. He is a formidable player returning back from injury. His class was seen in the second half this weekend against Man City. He is a continual danger to opposing defences because of his ability to score important goals and cut inside from the right wing. The combination of Salah’s individual skill and teamwork often proves to be crucial in Liverpool’s attacking pursuits.

Lukas Haraslin (Sparta Praha)

One player to keep an eye on versus Liverpool is Haraslin. He can play as a winger or attacking midfielder; his ability to dribble and his eye for goal make him an important element of Sparta Praha’s attacking tactics. He is a player to watch out for on the pitch because of his ability to find space and deliver dangerous crosses that can breach defences and open up scoring opportunities for his team.

Match facts:

  • This will be Liverpool’s third European encounter ever against a Czech team.
  • In the UEFA Europa League, Liverpool have won all eight of their previous home matches, including all three this season.
  • In their last 21 away games across all European competitions, Sparta Prague have suffered 17 defeats.
  • The only victory Sparta Prague had in their previous eleven trips to English clubs in European football came against Watford in the round of 16 of the UEFA Cup in 1983–84.
