Sunday's Fantasy Premier League Cup final puts managers from Serbia and England head-to-head.
Djole Isailovic will go into the tie as the favourite after his Gameweek 37 score of 82 points lifted him to 659th place in the world.
Crucially, he still has the Triple Captain chip left to play.
He will meet Nick Smith in the final, with the English manager ranked 5,186th.
Nick progressed to the final after activating his own chip to earn 24 points from Harry Kane (£13.1m) over Gameweek 37.
Both finalists hold the Tottenham Hotspur striker, along with six other players: David De Gea (£5.9m), Mat Ryan (£4.6m), Chris Smalling (£5.7m), Luka Milivojevic (£5.2m), Leroy Sane (£8.6m) and Jamie Vardy (£8.9m).
Sunday's battle will likely be decided in midfield, where the major differentials are found.
Salah could be Djole's Triple Captain, giving Nick a major dilemma.
The Egyptian only left his squad as recently as Gameweek 37.
That was a decision that helped him past semi-final opponent, Ukrainian manager Maksym Manlinovskyi.
Similarly, Djole, who beat Welsh manager Jonathan Chubb in the last four, will be wary of the threat from Sterling.
The Manchester City winger has delivered a goal or an assist in seven of his last eight appearances.
Indeed, Sterling and Salah are the two most consistent FPL scorers and could be the captains in Sunday's final.
Their performances will go a long way to deciding the victor.
The winner of the FPL Cup will collect a range of prizes, including VIP hospitality at one Premier League 2018/19 match of their choice, complete with travel and accommodation.
