Red Bull Salzburg is welcoming Bayern Munich to Red Bull Arena in round 3 in the UEFA Champions League.
Salzburg is the best team in Austria, and they have been for years now. Salzburg has lost only 1 of their last 14 games, but they are still without a win in the Champions League. Salzburg has 1 draw and 1 loss, and they are in the last place in their group in the Champions League. Last weekend, Salzburg has won their Austrian Bundesliga against Swarowski, and they are at the top of the Bundesliga standings with massive 24 scored goals in 6 games. In their last Champions League game, Salzburg was playing against Atletico Madrid on the road, and they have had 51% of ball possession, 4 shots on goal, 5 corner kicks, 1 big chance created, and a decent 78% of the correct passes. Salzburg was losing in this game, then winning, and then again losing, and at the end, Salzburg has lost this game 3-2. Szoboszlai is the leading goalscorer for Salzburg in the Champions League with 2 goals, while Januzovic and Berisha added 1 goal each. Berisha, Januzovic, Ulmer, and Daka have each added 1 assist. Diarra, Bernede, Daka, Wober, and Diakite are all injured, and they will miss this game for Salzburg. Despite their good form, Salzburg will need so much more to beat Bayern in this match, but you never know, it’s soccer after all.
Bayern is playing in fantastic form, as usual, and they have won their last 8 games, in Bundesliga and the Champions League. Bayern has beaten Koln in Bundesliga this last weekend, and with that win, Bayern has taken over the top of the table. Bayern is also the best offensive team in Bundesliga with 24 scored goals in 6 games. As far as the Champions League goes, Bayern has won both of their games, and they have scored 6 goals while doing so. Bayern has also been great on the defensive end with only 1 conceded goal. In their last Champions League game, Bayern was playing against Lokomotiv Moscow on the road, and they were the dominant team with 65% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 4 corner kicks, 5 big chances created, and a solid 87% of the correct passes. Despite the dense schedule, Bayern is not slowing down, and they are still the best team in the world, and more importantly, most of their injured players are back. Goretzka and Coman have each scored 2 goals for Bayern in the Champions League, while surprisingly enough, Lewandowski is still goalless in the Champions League. I think it’s not a question if Bayern will advance to the next stage, the only question is from which spot, but if they continue playing this well, it will definitely be the first place.
When I first saw this matchup, goals have crossed my mind, and I still think we will see a lot of goals. I will take goals here any day of the weak.
