Our football match prediction:
As expected, Salzburg outclassed Hibernians (3-0) in Malta in the first leg of their Champions League qualifying tie. The Red Bulls are likely to book their place in round 3, but coach Marco Rose must warn his men against complacency. The Austrian champions are seen as hot favourites to win Wednesday’s football match, but it has to be noted that Valon Berisha, who scored in the 3-0 win over Hibernians a week ago, is going to miss the return leg through suspension. Anyhow, regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting line-up, we predict that Salzburg are going to defeat Hibernians at their Red Bull Arena as the Maltese champions do not seem to be competitive at this level. In Valon Berisha’s absence a man to watch in the home team will be Korea Republic attacker Hee-Chan Hwang, who scored in the first leg as well.
Highlighted Team (Red Bull Salzburg):
