Crvena Zvezda vs Red Bull Salzburg Prediction Today
Red Star – Red Bull Salzburg / Champions League – Belgrade Red Star and Austrian Salzburg unbeaten in this season welcome the first playoff match. Namely, the Serbian champion had eight wins and two draws in the 10 games played so far, while the Austrians had the maximum effect in the previous seven appearances. Let’s add that this is their first mutual experience in history.
Of course, the great form of both teams suggests that this should be one of the most interesting pairs of play-offs of the Champions League, with guests from Salzburg, above all because of the somewhat greater experience of playing in this competition, still apply for a mild favorite when it comes to transition to group stage. And they are certainly aware of the Red Star, so they announced a much more cautious and defensive approach than in some earlier appearances, especially because UEFA’s penalty would be deprived of this very important support from the standings.
However, coach Milojevic emphasized that he had great confidence in his choice, who were in the previous three rounds of the Champions League better than Spartaks from Latvia, the Courts of Lithuania and the Slovak Spartaka from Trnava, while in the first four rounds of the home championship, win. However, they have been resting the weekend, which should surely go hand in hand, as well as the fact that they do not have any problems with absenteeism, while the last minute is expected to be the latest reinforcement from Bordeaux, the attacker Caf.
Probable starting lineup of Red Star: Borjan – Stojković, Savić, Degenek, Rodić – Krstičić, Jovičić – Ben, Ebecilio, Radonjić – Stojiljković
For the guests from Austria, we have already said in the introduction that this season is only for victory, with only two matches in the Champions League and they played at home with 3: 0 and 1: 0 against the Macedonian scorer, while after routine passage in the next round of the Austrian Cup against the lower league of Oedta, and in four major appearances, he entered the same number of victories. Thus, last weekend with a combined set-up at home with 2: 0, the Hartberg team managed to keep them in the lead position on the table.
Last year, Salzburg made a great deal of success in the semi-finals of the European League, where they were stopped by French Marseille, while at the very start of the season in the third pre-season of the Champions League, eliminated by the Croatian representative, Rijeka. And as they would not have done so against the Red Star, they announced the maximum serious approach in both matches, with the injury of Onguen and the Gulbrandsen striker in Belgrade, while South Korean striker Hwang made representational commitments to the Asian Cup.
Confident start of Salzburg: Stankovic – Lainer, Ramalho, Pongracic, Ulmer – Junuzovic, Samassekou, Wolf, Schlager – Yabo, Dabbur
