Our football match prediction:
Hibernians of Malta set up a meeting with Salzburg in the Champions League second qualifying round by beating Tallinn in the two-legged tie. The Malta Premier League champions face an uphill task in the double-header against the big-spending Austrian side and we do not believe that they are capable of upsetting the Red Bulls in front of home fans in Corradino, Paola. Salzburg were more than unfortunate not to eliminate Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League play-offs last season and, no doubt, they are eager to book their place in the group stages of the elite competition this time out. The Red Bulls are seen as hot favourites on paper to beat Hibernians at Hibernians Stadium and we predict that the Austrians are going to prove their worth on the field. One of the men to watch in the away team will be summer signing Marco Djuricin, who scored eight goals for Ferencvaros last term.
Highlighted Team (Red Bull Salzburg):
Salzburg are a professional football club that compete in Austrian Bundesliga. The club’s main sponsors are Red Bull and, as a result, they are well known under the name of the Red Bulls. The club was founded on 13 September, 1933 and they won their first Austrian Bundesliga trophy in 1994. Salzburg quickly established themselves as the dominant force in the national championship and they are the most successful Austrian club in the 21st century. It has to be noted that they won their tenth Austrian Premier League trophy in 2016, finishing the season nine points clear of second-placed Rapid Wien. The Red Bulls welcome their rivals at Red Bull Arena, the stadium that was opened on 8 March, 2008. The capacity of the venue is 31 895. Salzburg participated in the 1993/1994 UEFA Cup final, but Italian side proved to be a big catch for the Austrian outfit. Inter recorded a 2-0 win over Salzburg in the final (on aggregate).
