Liverpool and Toulouse will play one of the best duels of the third day of the Europa League. It will be at Anfield in Group E in a clash between the two undefeated teams and candidates to advance to the round of 16.
The Reds have an ideal score in the competition after winning their two games with some solvency and lost only one game in the entire season, placing themselves in fourth place in the Premier League, three points behind the leader.
Toulouse won one and tied the remaining one in the European tournament, and arrives in England with four games without defeats although it wanders in the middle of the Ligue 1 table with two wins, five draws and two losses.
Liverpool will continue with an ideal score
Jürgen Klopp’s team won all their home games this season and did not concede that many in the last two. In the five games played at Anfield he scored thirteen goals and only two were scored against him.
The Violetas, for their part, have not won as visitors in six games and have only scored three goals playing away from home in the last five games where they scored six. In two of those games he did not score goals.
The only two confrontations between Liverpool and Toulouse were in the 2007/08 Champions League with victories for the English by 1 to 0 and 4 to 0.
Liverpool is the fourth highest scoring team and the fourth least scored team in the Premier, while in the Europa League they scored five goals and conceded one, being one of the highest scoring teams in this competition as well. Toulouse, for their part, scored eleven goals and had ten scored against them in Ligue 1 and in the continental tournament they scored only two goals and had one scored.

Mohamed Salah is playing his sixth season with Liverpool and is leading the progress of the English team. In the Premier League he has scored seven goals in nine games and had already scored against LASK Linz on the first day of the Europa League, scoring a total of eight goals in eleven games.
The Egyptian has just scored two goals in the Merseyside derby against Everton and was coming off another double the previous day, scoring four times in the last two appearances.
