Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp celebrates after the Premier League match with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in London November 23, 2019. He took exception to a reference to the reverse meeting - a 4-3 win at Anfield - being treated like "a friendly" by Salzburg players, especially when asked how he would ensure his players would not demonstrate complacency.
Everything is still to play for in Champions League Group E with leaders Liverpool set to conclude the group stage against Salzburg on Tuesday night.
Klopp admitted at his prematch news conference in Salzburg that he feels "tense" going into the game against Jesse Marsch's team, and with Salzburg chasing the win to seal qualification for the knockout stages for the first time, Klopp has warned his players that they can not take their opponents lightly.
"We always had to do it the hard way, I can't remember one time when it was, "Oh fine, done" a week before".
"We knew immediately after the Napoli game we have a final, and we have to make sure we are prepared for a final. We're at least used to that".
Klopp arrived at the Red Bull Arena in what he called "competition mode", stressing Liverpool's European ambitions had not been diluted by last year's victory, nor compromised by a demanding fixture list.

Transfer quarterbacks again lead Heisman Trophy finalists
A defensive player has not won the award since Charles Woodson in 1997, and it is rare for one to even be invited as a finalist. After transferring to Oklahoma, Hurts led the Sooners to the College Football Playoff semifinal against LSU as the No. 4 seed.
Liverpool can still progress even if they lose to RB Salzburg, but they would then have to rely on Genk taking points off Napoli in the group's other tie. "That's the only really clear thing before the game". We know that we are playing against a very strong opponent. But that means they have to beat us and that's not so easy - and we should use that fact as well. We are still ambitious like insane, we will go for everything, we will run for our lives - that's what we are, plus playing football.
"We want to go until the end again". You try to make sure he doesn't get many balls.
"Adam is not coming but will be back in training on Thursday", Klopp said.
However, Klopp insisted that while Lallana's injury isn't serious they didn't want to risk him.
The long-term absentees for Liverpool are Fabinho, who is out with an ankle injury, while Joel Matip and Nathaniel Clyne, are both out with a knee injuries.
