Boasting an excellent Champions League record against English opposition, Al Hain-Cole is backing Les Parisiens' Uruguayan star to strike at Anfield

Two of the world’s best attacking trios will face off at Anfield on Tuesday as Liverpool take on Paris Saint-Germain in their opening Champions League clash.

Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino scored 10 goals apiece as they fired the Reds to last season’s final, becoming the first three teammates to break double figures in a single Champions League campaign.

Having finished the season with 43 goals in all competitions, Salah is William Hill’s 16/5 (4.20) favourite to pick up where he left off in this competition by opening the scoring here, or 3/4 (1.75) to strike anytime.

Responsible for the decisive goal in each of the last two league games, Firmino is available at 8/5 (2.60) to extend that run to European football here.

However, Mane is actually the top scorer for Jurgen Klopp’s team with four goals in five so far, making odds of 7/4 (2.75) look like solid value on him getting on target once again.

In Edinson Cavani, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, Les Parisiens possess an equally formidable attacking threat with what is the most expensively assembled forward line in world football.

With 32 goals in 34 matches to his name since joining from Barcelona in a €222 million deal last year, Neymar is priced at 11/2 (6.50) to underline his worth by breaking the deadlock on Merseyside, or 7/5 (2.40) to score anytime.

The Brazilian superstar actually lags behind Cavani in terms of Champions League goals, with his South American counterpart having scored 32 times in 52 appearances.

Considering eight of those goals have come in 14 appearances against English opposition, the Uruguay striker may represent better value at those same 7/5 (2.40) anytime odds in this game.

Meanwhile, Mbappe became the youngest player to hit 10 Champions League goals when he scored against Bayern Munich last October at the age of just 18, and can be backed at 8/5 (2.60) to add to his growing reputation with another strike against last season’s finalists.

Cavani to score anytime for a 1.5pt stake at 7/5 (2.40) with William Hill
