Salzburg vs RB Leipzig
Salzburg will host Leipzig in the 5th round of group B in EL.
Salzburg are the leaders in the group with 12 points and they will qualify almost for sure in the next round. Their attack is more than productive with 14 goals in 4 matches, but also receiving 5. Over 2.5 goals is very often outcome in their matches, but here I will make another pick. Over 2.5 goals+BTTS is the most tempting pick for sure. Salzburg and Leipzig made 2:3 in their first game in Germany and tonight it's expected to make another game with goals in both nets.
Also both teams are sponsored by Red Bull, so the company will want both teams to progress in the next round. Celtic and Leipzig are with 6 points, so it's really not excluded Salzburg to "lend a hand" to Leipzig here and also to try to take at least a point in Glasgow in the last round, when Leipzig have the easier task to face Rosenborg at home. So, X2 and over 2.5 goals with goals in both nets are the logical outcomes. Don't look at Salzburg form in the domestic league or Lepizig's one..This match is from absolutely other cathegory and it's all about money. It depends what will be the final decision here. First option is away win so that RB will be absolutely sure Leipzig will progress and in the last round Salzburg to fight Celtic after beating them 3:1 at home and even a loss with 1 goal difference will qualify them, although I think Salzburg can beat Celtic also as visitors. The second option is a draw in a high-scoring match, something like 2:2, but then Leipzig have to beat for sure Rosenborg at home and Salzburg to give their best in Glasgow to take the win or at least a draw. First option should be the priority, because it's much easier to happen!
Salzburg will miss Yabo, Farkas, van der Werff and Haidara, while the visitors will be without Upamecano, Kampl and Forsberg.
I expect goals for sure and also to be in both nets. 1:2 or 2:2 are the most possible results for me here.
