Team News: Red Bull Salzburg
RB Salzburg manager Jesse Marsch has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Youba Diarra (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Ousmane Diakité (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Oumar Solet (Muscular problems) and Zlatko Junuzovic (Torn Muscle Fibre) can’t be considered. André Ramalho cannot play in this game through suspension.
For this match, we think that Red Bull Salzburg are likely to be able to create a good number of chances & successful shots on target.
At the same time, SV Ried may well struggle to get goals of their own but we can see them managing to get on the scoresheet as well here.
We’re therefore anticipating a decent 1-3 margin for Red Bull Salzburg at full-time.
