In Group G of the UEFA Champions League, the duel Red Bull Salzburg vs. FC Sevilla is on the program. For both teams is on On the last day of the group stage, a final in the fight for promotion or wintering in the European Cup is the order of the day.
Let’s take a look at the current situation in the table. After five match days, LOSC Lille are at the top with eight points. It is followed by Red Bull Salzburg with seven points. But also FC Sevilla (6) and VfL Wolfsburg (5). The starting position for both teams can therefore quickly be summed up on a common denominator. With a win you overwinter in the Champions League and are in the round of 16. The loser has to wait for the result of the parallel game VfL Wolfsburg against Lille. In the event of a tie, the bulls have the ticket for the Europa League in their pocket.
The hosts have it in their own hands. However, there are slight doubts about the Bulls’ form curve in the run-up to the game. The people of Mozartstadt did not take advantage of the first two “match balls on the rise”. The last list has become longer with defense chief Wöber and the form curve shows “slightly down”. So also in the domestic championship. Last Saturday a comeback victory was achieved with two late goals against TSV Hartberg (match report – Link). On the other hand, Sevilla FC can point to a successful dress rehearsal (Link). It is also set up for a game where everything is important for both teams.
