Salzburg vs Borussia Dortmund – Europa League: In one of the several matches taking place on this Thursday of football in Europe
Counting towards the 2nd leg of the Europa League’s 8th finals, the local side Salzburg and the visiting side Dortmund face off in the city of Salzburg, at the RedBull Arena.
With both Central European teams facing off again within a short period, after the 1st leg having ended with a surprising 1-2 win for the Austrians at the Signal-Iduna Park.
The Austrian champions, who are making a good campaign on several levels, namely in terms of the European competitions, come into this match with a very important advantage on this knockout tie.
Having managed to achieve the remarkable feat of winning at one of the toughest stadiums in Europe, taking a giant step towards reaching the Europa League’s quarter-finals.
The team is coming off an excellent streak of results, not losing for several months (more specifically since the end of August), in what was a practically perfect campaign from the hosts, who have a remarkable record since then.
As for the visitors, they are making a strange campaign, like it has been their norm in recent years, showing a huge inconsistency in terms of showings and results.
Which sets them back on their initial objectives for the season, no longer having chances to win the Bundesliga and having on this Europa League the chance to salvage their season.
The team is coming off a streak of results that, I believe, can’t be considered the most positive one of the season, with the team only having 1 win on their last 5 matches, with the other results being 3 draws and 1 loss.
Salzburg vs Borussia Dortmund – Betting Tip and Prediction:
After a somewhat strange match on the 1st leg of this tie, where Salzburg, with half the ball possession of their opponents, scored double the amount of goals, although it is also true that they’ve had more shots on goal.
I believe that this match will be very similar to their previous one, with both teams being focused on the opposing goal, although the home side will certainly not want to take the initiative as much, since they are ahead on this tie.
In any way, I expect a match with goals, namely during the first 45 minutes.
