Reigning Italian champions AC Milan will kick off its fresh Champions League journey with a trip to Austria, as it faces Salzburg this Tuesday.
Salzburg topped the Austrian Bundesliga table for a 2nd consecutive season, thereby earning automatic qualification to the group stages of the Champions League. Drawn in one of the most difficult groups, where it competes with the likes of AC Milan, Chelsea, and Dinamo Zagreb, Salzburg will be hoping to qualify for the next round for a second consecutive season. In the previous season, Salzburg crashed out of the round of 16 after a humiliating 2-8 aggregate against Bayern Munich. Talking about its recent form, Salzburg has won each of its last 5 games across competitions and is once again at the top of the Austrian Bundesliga table.
AC Milan won the Italian title last season after an extremely close fight with its neighbors Inter Milan, and have continued their sensational form this season too. They are unbeaten in the first 5 matches of the domestic league and travel to Salzburg on the back of a 3-2 win over their arch-rivals Inter. Portuguese forward Rafael Leao scored a brace in that game, handing Milan its second victory in 3 matches. Stefano Pioli’s team had crashed out of the group stages the last season, registering just 1 win in 6 matches, and he will be hoping to put up a better performance this time.
Match prediction and football betting tips for RB Salzburg vs AC Milan Champions League 2022-23. The match is going to be played at the Red Bull Arena, Salzburg, on 6th September 2022.
AC Milan will be traveling without Zlatan Ibrahimović, Rade Krunic, Ante Rebic, and Alessandro Florenzi, all of whom are nursing injuries. Barring these, Pioli has a relatively full squad to choose from, and he will be hoping to make a winning start to his European campaign.
On the other hand, Matthias Jaissle has a rather long list of doubtful players for this game. These include Kamil Piatkowski, Justin Omoregie, Sekou Koita, Ousmane Diakite and Luka Sucic name a few. Also, Bryan Okoh, Mamady Diambo, and Samson Tijani will be serving their suspensions, and hence will be unavailable for selection.
Despite playing with a severely depleted squad, we expect the home team to put up a good fight, but it will not be enough to let them earn any points from this game.
Bet on AC Milan to win.
AC Milan has an aggregate score of 16-2 in the last 5 matches against Austrian sides in European competitions. 4 of the last 6 games played across competitions by Salzburg too have produced at least 3 goals in them. We are therefore expecting a score of more than 2.5 from this match.
Salzburg has already netted an aggregate of 18 goals in the 7 matches it has played in the domestic league and has scored at least once in each of its last 10 games played across competitions. AC Milan has conceded in 3 of its last 5 matches, and think that Salzburg will be able to go through its defenses at least once in this game.
