And what makes this duel for interesting is the current form of the teams on the background to the buildup for Tuesday.

Red Star, who started their European campaign in the first round have 6 matched behind them and they are unbeaten with 4 wins and 2 draws. The conceded no goals until last round’s clash with Trnava where the two legs saw same 1-1 ft score-line eventually leading to penalty shootout.

The combination of Champions League and domestic fixtures set Belgrade on a 10 match unbeaten streak this season picking 7 wins and 3 draws, scored 22 goals to 3 conceded.

Salzburg’s Champions League journey only started in the last round and they bagged a solid 4-0 aggregate win over Macedonian outfit Shkendija (3-0 home, 1-0 away).

Just like their hosts, the Austrians also boast an unbeaten run in this season’s competitive games. This stand at a 7-game winning streak, scored 19 goals and conceded just once.

Both teams were in last season’s Europa League group stage. Red Star’s journey came to an end with a defeat to CSKA Moscow in the first knockout round. While Salzburg achieved their best at the tournament before losing to Marseille in the semifinals in the added extra time.

Red Star Belgrade vs Salzburg Head-to-head

Despite being regulars in the qualifiers, both teams haven’t had the chance to have a go at each other.

Red Star Belgrade vs Salzburg Prediction

It is hard for me to pick a clear winner in this contest with confidence since both teams have impressed in all competitions they entered in this season. On top of that, fitness is not an issue for either managers with plenty of competitive games on their back.

Please take a note of the players marked as injured in Salzburg squad at some websites, none of them played a part in the team’s 7 match winning run this season.

Moving on, my only pick for this match is from the goal market based inspired by the team’s brilliant attacking display. Either team kept a number of clean sheets this season, however they are untested against quality attack of this magnitude.
