  • RB Salzburg’s group games have averaged a whopping 5.0 goals per 90 minutes this season.

Crucial Champions League contest to produce goals

The Red Bull Arena in Salzburg is gearing up to host what should prove to be a nail-biting Champions League encounter between Die Roten Bullen and Atletico Madrid on Wednesday evening, as the Group A contenders go head-to-head for a place in the competition’s knockout phase.

Only a win for RB Salzburg will suffice if the Austrian champions are to leapfrog Atletico into 2nd spot on Group A’s final match day, and Jesse March’s men are expected to go all out in search of what would prove a historic win.

Remarkably, Salzburg have won only one of their five group games so far, though Die Roten Bullen have been superb value in the entertainment stakes. Their Champions League matches have averaged an incredible 5.0 goals per 90 minutes this term, and we expect their final game on Wednesday to match those thrilling heights.

When Atletico and Salzburg faced off in Madrid back in October, they traded blows in a pulsating 3-2 victory for the La Liga outfit, and all the evidence suggests their rematch in Austria on Wednesday will be similarly gripping.

Aligning the factors, the over 3.5 goals market looks excellent value for this week’s crucial contest, while our correct score prediction tips Atletico to edge their opponents again in another 3-2 end-to-ender.

Salzburg have the attacking talent and forward-thinking tactical setup to create chances against just about anyone, however, only Hungarian minnows Ferencvaros (16) have conceded more goals in the group stage than Jesse Marsch’s men (15), and we think the Austrian’s inability to keep the door shut in defensive areas will be their undoing again.
