Salzburg vs Maccabi Tel Aviv
Champions League Qualification
Date: Wednesday, 30 September 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Red Bull Arena.
Jesse Marsch’s men have been the undisputed best team in Austria for the past few years. They have been in unimaginable form, and it’s only deserving that they are on the cusp of an entry into the Champions League.
The Austrian Bundesliga is also a competition far better than that of the Israeli Premier League, and to top it off, the Red Bulls had won the first leg on the road with a 1-2 scorecard.
Thus, they have a lead in aggregate, and also have two away goals to their name. The desperate guests will now have to attack from the get-go, and the free flowing offense of Marsch’s men will easily take care of business in the meantime.
Salzburg vs Maccabi Tel Aviv: Head-to-head (h2h)
The Austrians recorded a 1-2 win on the road in the first leg, and this has been the only encounter between the two so far. Thus, the Red Bulls have a 100% winning record against this rival.
Salzburg vs Maccabi Tel Aviv: Prediction
Marsch’s men are on a six-match winning run, as well as a 25-game unbeaten run. They had scored a total of 54 goals from their past 15 fixtures, and they have lost just once at home in the past nine-month period.
They had scored two or more goals in 24 of the former 28 home appearances, and the last they failed to find the back of the net at home was back in December of 2019.
Meanwhile, their opposite number were winless in three of their last four fixtures, and they had also lost the first leg.
Giorgos Donis’s men will have no option but to go into attack mode right away from the starting whistle, and this desperation will be smartly taken advantage of by the hosts.
Likely, expect a strong win by Salzburg this Wednesday.
