Red Bull Salzburg
Red Bull Salzburg have a great thing going for them this season. They sit top of the log on their league table, leading by 17 points. They have won 15 out of their 19 games so far, losing 1 and drawing 3. In that incredible run, they have scored 44 times and conceded 13 goals.
In the Champions League, Salzburg placed 2nd in a group that had the likes of LOSC Lille and Seville. They won 3, drew 1, and lost two of their 6 group stage fixtures, scoring 8 goals and conceding 6. Youngster Karim Adeyemi is their top scorer in the UCL, with 3 goals and 1 assist to his name this season.
For their team news, Bernardo, Onguene Jerome, Junuzovic Zlatko, Seiwald Nicolas, and Sesko Benjamin are sidelined with injuries and may be unavailable for selection when Salzburg hosts Bayern Munich.
Julian Nagelsmann’s men will be hoping to deliver a strong response to their 4–2 defeat at the hands of Bochum in the Bundesliga. They remain first on the log in the league, having amassed 52 points in 22 games. They have 17 wins, 1 draw, and 4 losses, and have scored a whopping 70 goals, conceding 25.
Bayern Munich’s form in the Champions League is on another level as they are only the third side, together with Liverpool and Ajax, to win their group with a 100% record. 6 wins out of 6 in a group that had teams like Barcelona and Benfica is no mean feat. The Bavarians even conquered in style, scoring 22 goals and conceding just 3. Robert Lewandowski, with 9 goals and 2 assists, is Bayern’s top scorer.
For their team news, Manuel Neuer, Jamal Musiala, Alphonso Davies, and Leon Goretzka may miss the game due to injury concerns.
