RB Salzburg and Dinamo Zagreb face off on Wednesday in a UEFA Champions League Group E showdown at Red Bull Arena.
RB Salzburg comes into this game sitting in 3rd place in the standings having picked up two points. RB Salzburg’s last game in the Champions League came against Chelsea, and that game ended with a 1-1 draw. It was Noah Okafor that scored a goal in the 75th minute to secure the draw. They only had 27 percent of the possession, but had three shots on target. RB Salzburg is pretty healthy coming into this game, but they are going to be without a few members. Fernando has had a big season, but he is dealing with an injury and won't be able to go in this game. Dijon Kameri is also dealing with a shoulder injury and won’t be able to go in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Dinamo Zagreb, who sits in second place in the group having picked up three points. In their last Champions League game against AC Milan, the defense really struggled, giving up three goals and that led to the defeat. They only had 43 percent of the possession and three shots on goal, and that led to the defeat. On October 1st they scored four goals and that led to the victory. Bruno Petkovic is expected to move back into the starting lineup and that is going to be a big boost for this team. Mislav Orsic will also be playing up front, and he needs to be putting the pressure on the defense of RB Salzburg.
In terms of talent, RB Salzburg has more talent, and they are going to be the team to find success here. The Dinamo Zagreb’s defense isn’t going to do enough here, and they are going to give up a few goals to RB Salzburg. This is going to be an easy win for RB Salzburg. Back RB Salzburg on the money line to cash.
