Salzburg vs Elfsborg by Goleador
My problem here is that I don´t know much about the current performance of Elfsborg, but about Salzburg I know a lot and this is also the reason for my pick: In this group first and second place will go to Salzburg and Standard Liege. The goal for Salzburg is to win this group after not reaching the CL Group stage. In Austrian league they are dominating and are undefeated in the last 26 games. Yesterday (Sunday) they could celebrate a clear 5-0 away win vs. third placed Ried. The beginning of the end for Ried in this game were mistakes by both defensive midfielders and CB Ramalho scored by a shot from about 20 metres. The mistakes from Ried didn´t end and so Alan could score the goals two and three. In second half Ried didn´t give up and tried to create chances, also hit the post, but Salzburg score the fourth goal. Kevin Kampl didn´t only score the 4th goal, he also made the 5th goal and fixed the FT result with a cross, which was deflected and wasn´t to save in any way. The main point I can take from this match is, that Salzburg efficiently used their chances. In the league games before, like vs Rapid (1-1) or Admira (1-0) Salzburg wasn´t able to use the best chances, but now it really seems to work as they play many fast attacks, most times over the wings with both wingers Kampl and Mane and both Wingdefenders Schwegler and Ulmer.
Elfsborg last years Swedish Champion couldn´t take their way to CL group stage or even to the playoff round. The qualificated by beating Nordjaelland in EL playoff round. At the time they have a run of three won games in a row, but are only on 5th plave in Allsvenskan.
I think Salzburg in the current situation is really hard to play against. Elfsborg hasn´t got such a wide and high quality squad like Salzburg. Salzburg can play really fast combinations and offensive football which Elfsborg can´t compete with.
