Soccer News – Salzburg-Bayern Munich
Salzburg hosts Bayern Munich at the Red Bull Arena in a match from Group A of the Champions League. This is a fixture between the last and the first team in this group’s standings. Let’s preview it.
Salzburg have won just one point in the first two rounds of the Champions League group stage. Right now the Austrians are 4th with one draw and one loss. Their only point they have won during the 2-2 draw with Lokomotiv Moscow at home.
Lsat week Salzburg suffered their first defeat in the group, although they played well and scored two times against Atletico Madrid. The Austrian champions made a solid game at the Wanda Metropolitano, but the game ended with a 3-2 win for Atleti. Dominik Szoboszlai scored for Salzburg while Atletico Madrid’s Felipe scored himself an own goal.
Salzburg can fight with Lokomotiv Moscow for the third place in this group and the opportunity to advance in Europa League. But for this they need as much points as they can win.
Bayern Munich are probably the strongest team on the continent right now. They already started their participance in the Champions League group stage with two wins from two matches played. The Bavarians are leading the group standings with 6 points won. In these two games Bayern scored six goals and conceded just one.
Last week the Bavarians traveled to the Russian capital Moscow and celebrated a 2-1 win over Lokomotiv. Leon Goretzka and Joshua Kimmich scored for Hansi Flick’s team.
These are our thoughts about the Champions League fixture between Salzburg and Bayern Munich on Tuesday. It looks really difficult to win points against this version of the Bavarian club, but Salzburg do not have any choice here – they must try and give their best. Let’s see if they can do it, though.
