Champions League: Red Bull Salzburg challenges French champions OSC Lille – Bundesliga
Tomorrow, Wednesday, the first Champions League home game of the will take place in the Red Bull Arena FC Salzburg in this season. Austria’s series champion receives the reigning French champions OSC Lille in front of a home crowd. In the first group game against Sevilla (1-1), FC Salzburg caused a lot of spectacle.
The point in a nice game at the UCL opener against group favorites FC Sevilla made the young Salzburg squad want more. But you know the quality of the French champions: “Lille snatched the championship title from PSG last season, which says enough about their quality. We have already analyzed the opponent and know how dangerous they are. In their first game they brought Wolfsburg to the brink of defeat. But we could have won at Sevilla too. So I think it’s going to be a match between equals, ”explains Jerome Onguene.
Matthias Jaissle said of the duel with illegals: “We are really looking forward to our first home game in the group. Lille are a top team that landed before PSG last season. You have to have quality there. And when I look at your performance against Wolfsburg, I have to say: It was really strong and very dominant. Her start in the league was definitely not what she would have liked. But they won the last two games again. And in the Champions League it’s something completely different anyway. In any case, we will meet a strong opponent. “
Last season of Ligue 1, LOSC Lille put the star ensemble of Paris Saint-Germain in their place and won their fifth championship title by one point. Things are not going optimally for the club from the north of France this season. The “Great Danes” are eighth in the championship with eleven points after eight games. Last weekend, coach Jocelyn Gourvennec’s team celebrated a 2-1 win at Strasbourg (both goals from Jonathan David). In the first CL group game, the French won 0-0 in their home game against VfL Wolfsburg.
