RB Salzburg will host Bayern Munich for the first leg of its round of 16 fixtures in the ongoing season of the UEFA Champions League.
Red Bull Salzburg earned its place in the group stage of the Champions League by beating the Danish club Brondby. The team found itself among clubs like Lille and Sevilla in Group G and played exceptionally well to finish second ahead of Sevilla to make it to the round of 16. The team’s form in the Austrian Bundesliga has been great too, where it is currently leading the points table with a lead of 14 points over Wolfsberg. Going into this game, Salzburg has won 4 consecutive matches across competitions and will be feeling pretty confident.
However, its chances of scoring a victory against the mighty Germans are pretty slim, but they can hope to finish at an equal scoreline.
Bayern Munich finished as the top team of Group E, winning all the 6 matches in the group stage. The team’s exceptional form played an important part in the unceremonious exit of Barcelona from the group stage. Bayern Munich is also well on its way to claiming the German Bundesliga title for the 10th consecutive season.
The team did however suffer a surprise 4-2 loss against Vfl Bochum in its last game. Julian Nagelsmann will like to put that rare blip behind him and motivate his boys to get back to winning ways against the relatively weak opponents.
Match prediction and betting tips for RB Salzburg vs Bayern Munich UEFA Champions League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Red Bull Arena, Salzburg, Austria, on 16th February 2022.
Bayern coach Nagelsmann will have to contend without Manuel Nuer, Leon Goretzka, Jamal Musiala, and Alphonso Davies, all of whom are suffering from various fitness issues. On the other hand, Salzburg has some serious problems with selections, with as many as 7 players facing injuries or suspension. These include Benjamin Sesko, Bernardo, Sekou Koita, Bryan Okoh, Ousmane Diakite, Zlatko Junuzovic, and Albert Valli.
Despite playing with home advantage, we do not expect Salzburg to pose any formidable threat to the visitors. We expect this to be a high-scoring game, where both the teams might score.
Bet on Bayern Munich to win.
