Red Bull Salzburg is welcoming Atletico Madrid to Red Bull Arena in round 6 in the UEFA Champions League.
Salzburg has won only 2 of their last 7 games, but with a win in the Champions League last week, Salzburg has bought themselves a chance to advance to the next stage. Salzburg is now in third place with 4 points, and with a win in this game, Salzburg would climb to second place and the next stage. In their last Champions League game against Lokomotiv Moscow on the road, Salzburg has had 50% of ball possession, but 6 shots on goal, 8 corner kicks, 4 big chances created, and 71% of the correct passes. With 2 scored goals in the first half and 1 more goal in the second half, Salzburg has won this game 1-3. Berisha is the leading goalscorer for Salzburg with 5 goals. Diarra, Bernede, and Diakite are all injured for Salzburg. With a loss in the Austrian Bundesliga last weekend, Salzburg has also lost the top spot, but they are still the best team in Austria, and if they can play some of their best soccer in this game, I believe Salzburg will advance to the next stage.
Atletico Madrid is still undefeated in LaLiga, and they are at the top of the table, but they are not doing so well in the Champions League. Even though Atletico has only 1 loss, they are in second place with 6 points, but they are still in danger of losing that spot. In their last Champions League game, Atletico was hosting Bayern, and they were decent with 45% of ball possession, 3 shots on goal, 3 corner kicks, 2 big chances created, and 84% of the correct passes. Considering Bayern was playing with their third lineup in this game, Atletico should have done better, and that game ended in a 1-1 draw. Felix has scored 3 goals for Atletico so far, while Gimenez and Llorente added 1 goal each. Sanchez and Costa are injured for Atletico Madrid. Atletico has improved a lot since the last season, and their game confirms that, but Felix needs to get some support in this game because Atletico’s Champions League season is at stake. With a win or a draw Atletico is advancing to the next stage, and they are going to the Europa League if they lose. It’s not that the Europa League is bad, but for a team like Atletico Madrid, there is only the Champions League.
Atletico has beaten Salzburg at home earlier this season, and it was a fantastic game. Salzburg needs a win here more, and they could get it home. This game could go either way because both teams are good, and for that reason, I will pick something on goals here.
