Red Bull Salzburg vs Rosenborg
Red Bull Salzburg welcomes Rosenborg in a game from Group B of the Europa League. Let’s take a look at this clash on Austrian soil on Thursday night. Salzburg failed to qualify for the Champions League this season, but they started very well their campaign in Europa League. The Austrians are currently leaders in this group with a perfect record of 6 points from two games played.
Salzburg started their campaign with a dramatic 3-2 win over RB Leipzig in Leipzig. This win was followed by another one – this time against Celtic. Marco Rose’s team didn’t leave any chances to the Scottish team, beating them with 3-1 at home. The Israeli forward Munas Dabour scored a brace for Salzburg, while Takumi Minamino added one more for the winning team. Odsonne Edouard opened the score for Celtic after just 2 minutes of playing, but it was all from Celtic for the night.
In the Austrian Bundesliga are convincing leaders with 10 points advantage in front of the 2nd St. Polten. As it looks right now, Salzburg won’t have problems to win another title in the Bundesliga.
Rosenborg is still without a point in Group B. The Norwegian team started the campaign with a 0-1 loss against Celtic. This defeat was followed by another one – a 1-3 loss against RB Leipzig at home. Issam Jebali scored for Rosenborg, but when he did it, it was already 0-3 for RB Leipzig.
Surely Salzburg is favourited against Rosenborg. They are leading the group and so far they are looking like a total favourite for winning it. Rosenborg on the other hand still have chances for something more in this group, but only if they start winning points. And for them, it would be very difficult to start doing it in Salzburg. But who knows?
