Kevin Kampl: Amongst the goals

Salzburg completed a perfect Europa League group stage with a comfortable 3-0 home victory over Esbjerg.

Sadio Mane scored twice and set up Kevin Kampl for the other in a 3-0 win that ensured the Austrian side avoided any of the Champions League clubs that will fall into the second-tier competition for the last-32 stage.

Despite wining their opening five games, Salzburg began the night still in danger of being overhauled by Esbjerg, who were also guaranteed a top-two finish with their only previous Group C defeat having been a 2-1 loss in the reverse fixture in Denmark.

Salzburg therefore only had to avoid defeat by a greater margin and were on course once Mane opened the scoring with 19 minutes on the clock.

It was a blow to Esbjerg's ambitions after they had showed some early promise they could get the first goal to set up a nervy night for their hosts.

Jonas Knudsen fired a well-hit 30-yard shot wide before Mick van Buren missed a better chance from inside the area.

But Salzburg took their lead shortly after when Kampl's deflected cross fell for Mane. The Senegal midfielder kept his cool to send his shot past goalkeeper Frederik Ronnow.

Alan, who netted twice in the reverse fixture, could have closed the door on the contest before half-time only to twice shoot wide when he might have done better.

It hardly mattered as Salzburg were out of sight shortly after half-time as the Kampl and Mane combination again proved too much for an Esbjerg side marooned in the Superliga relegation places.

Mane's cushioned header on 58 minutes set up Kampl to fire home and five minutes later the Senegalese had his second. Alan sprung the offside trap and unselfishly rolled to ball across for Mane to tap in.

Ronnow denied Yordy Reyna with his feet from close range before tipping a Marco Meilinger drive wide as Salzburg cruised through the finals stages.
