“This loss is a motivation for us. For this team, everything is possible in the Europa league. We have should that we can play at the top and we deserve to be proud of ourselves, ” Mwepu said.
Red Bull's full UCL run:
- Salzburg 6-2 Genk
- Liverpool 4-3 Salzburg
- Salzburg 2-3 Napoli
- Napoli 1-1 Salzburg

Dropping into the Europa League does not mean the end of facing Europe's elite though. Salzburg have the possibilities of drawing the likes of Manchester United and Arsenal.
Meanwhile, Salzburg remain high on the summit of the Austrian Bundesliga. Next is a trip to Hartberg on Saturday.
