Red Bull Salzburg can look back on a strong start to the season. On Wednesday, the people of Mozartstadt want to write in full for the first time in the Champions League.
Matthias Jaissle also strives for complete success in the Champions League.
Nine games, nine wins, a goal difference of 23: 4 – Red Bull Salzburg is once again the measure of all things in the Austrian Bundesliga this year. So far, Matthias Jaissle’s team has not left the pitch as winners in the current season: At the Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, the Mozartstadt-based team split 1-1 from Sevilla FC. It was the start of a Champions League season in which Salzburg want to make it beyond the group stage for the first time in club history. The next step could be against Lille OSC on Wednesday.
Champions League, Group G.
Unlike the Bulls, the reigning French champions have had a mixed start to the new season. In Ligue 1, the men of coach Jocelyn Gourvennec currently only occupy ninth place, but Lille has won each of the last two games. “Her start in the league was definitely not what she would have liked. But she won the last two games again. And in the Champions League it’s something completely different anyway. , therefore Jaissle knows too.
Wöber questionable for Wednesday
At the beginning of the Champions League season, the “Doggen” did not make it past VfL Wolfsburg, despite being outnumbered by half an hour. Nevertheless, Jaissle saw a good performance from the upcoming opponent: “When I look at your performance against Wolfsburg, I have to say: It was really strong and very dominant.” Jerome Onguene was also original from Lille’s first premier class appearance: “Lille snatched the championship title from PSG last season, which is enough about their quality. We have already analyzed the opponents and we know how dangerous they are. In their game they have Wolfsburg brought to the brink of defeat. ”
As in the 2-0 away win against Wolfsberger AC, the 23-year-old could form the central defense together with Bernardo. Because next to Oumar Solet (meniscus) and Kamil Piatkowski (ankle) Maximilian Wöber could also be out on Wednesday due to thigh problems. The anticipation for the match does not affect this fact. “We’re really looking forward to our first home game in the group,” said Jaissle. So far, around 22,000 tickets have been sold for the encounter.
