Red Bull Salzburg striker Erling Haaland insists the Austrian side can stun Liverpool to dump the holders out of the Champions League next month.

The Reds' draw against Napoli at Anfield on Thursday means they go into the final matchday in Salzburg needing at least a draw to guarantee their place in the last 16.

Haaland was on target on Merseyside earlier this season as Salzburg fell to a 4-3 defeat, one of 27 goals he has scored in all competitions this season - in just 19 matches.

That form has led to the 19-year-old being linked with a clutch of Europe's biggest club - with Manchester United reportedly readying a January move.

"They are the world's best team," he said. "But we know we are good at home and if we are at our top level, we have a chance."

Haaland made history as Salzburg beat Genk on Wednesday, becoming the first teenager ever to score in five successive European Cup or Champions League fixtures.
