Salzburg – Brondby
Austrian champions Red Bull Salzburg takes on the challenge of their Danish counterparts Brondby IF in their bid for UEFA Champions League group stage qualification. The Red Bull Arena is the venue for the first leg fixture as Matthias Jaissle’s men look to gain an advantage before their trip to Denmark.
Matthias Jaissle’s start to life at the Red Bull Arena could not have gone any better. His Red Bull Salzburg charges have made little work of their rivals, winning five matches in succession. They have scored 16 goals and have also accumulated two clean sheets in the process. The Danish champions are winless in their five Superliga outings, losing two (most recent) and drawing three.
In their first competitive fixture, it is difficult to pick Brondby over Red Bull Salzburg. Die Roten Bullen have steam-rolled past everyone they have come across this season, registering five wins in succession. With Brondby winless in the same period, accruing two defeats and three draws, they cannot be favoured for a win in this meeting.
This match will be played on 17/08/2021 at 22:00.
