Salzburg vs Dortmund (By: Stanioooo)
Salzburg host Dortmund in the 2nd leg of EL.
Okey, let's get on the right track here- last two picks I tried something different with bigger handicaps or goalscorer. They were all possible and logical, but risky picks from my side, so I will concentrate on surer bets. This is one of them for me!
Salzburg and Dortmund are attacking minded teams and they proved that in Germany. The 1st leg finished with an unexpected result 2:1 for the visitors and Dortmund have a mountain to climb to reach the quarterfinals. They have to score at least two times in Austria if they want to have any chances to continue. I don't want to pick any of the teams in this tie to progress it's so tricky, because the 2nd leg can go in both directions, it depends what tactic they will use. So, my pick will be basen on goals here.
Salzburg always succeed to score at home, at least one time and if we count that Borussia have to score at least twice to have chances for the QFs, the pick looks pretty solid, BUT football is not always logical game. The weather conditions and the football pitch are excellent for today's match and I'm sure we will see attacking football from the start and a lot of goal chances. Goals are highly expected here.
The main problem for the visitors are the missing players- Yarmolenko, Rode, Durm, Kagawa, Guerreiro, Akanji and Sancho are all out, but they still have a great starting line-up and I think with Reus, Schurrle and Batshuayi goals are guaranteed. The hosts don't have any missing players and will use their best. Valon Berisha is their main weapon and he proved it in Germany. Supported by Dabbur and Hee-Chan I think Salzburg have also great chances even for more than a goal.
I like Dortmund and really want them to progress- it will be a hard task, but not impossible. We will see what will happen, but I believe goals will come here in both nets with easiness.
