Red Bull Salzburg striker Patson Daka has reacted positively to the club's Champions League draw.

The Austrian side have landed an interesting group, going up against reigning winners Liverpool.

 

Napoli and Genk are the other two teams making up the quartet.

Zambian international Daka is excited for the challenge. 

Daka, 20, is more of a prospect than an established star and he is no certainty to be involved.

But his comments sum up the excitement at the Austrian side, who will probably fancy their chances of beating Napoli to second place.

Any slip up from Liverpool could see them dragged into the mix too, and the Reds will have to be at the top of their game, especially away from home where they struggled in the group stages last  season.

Liverpool's first Champions League fixture is away at Napoli in September 17.
