Our football match prediction:
Salzburg missed out on a place in the Champions League play-offs, but thanks to a 3-1 win over Viitorul the Red Bulls moved one step closer to making it to the group stages of the Europa League. Salzburg did well to make amends for the unfortunate loss to Rijeka in the Champions League third qualifying round and they are surely high on confidence ahead of Thursday’s football match. Korean attacker Hee-Chan Hwang proved his worth in the 3-1 win over Viitorul and the Asian rising star is likely to pose a big threat for the opposition back-line in the second leg. The Romanians have nothing to lose in the Red Bull Arena clash and seeing that they are going to adopt an attack-minded approach in the return leg, there is every chance the Austrian champions will have a number of chances to score on the break.
