Both matches on Matchday 1 in Group G of the Champions League ended in a draw. Will either of these take their chance on Wednesday?

Salzburg have a home advantage as they seek three points that will boost their qualification hopes.

Lille looks defensively sound enough to more than make a nuisance of themselves in Austria however.

FC Salzburg Preview – Can Austrian’s land the positive result?

This will be the first meeting between FC Salzburg and France’s Lille in competitive action.

In fact, Salzburg have only played one previous match against a French opponent.

That was a 2-1 success earned over Marseille in the 2018 UEFA Europa League.

Salzburg are a quote of 19/20 to pick up the three points on Wednesday* (odds recorded 2041 GMT September 26th 2021).

On Matchday 1, Salzburg produced a credible draw against group favourites Sevilla.

That was certainly something to build on.

They will be ruing a bigger missed chance however as they had three first-half penalties.

Salzburg have taken a win in only one of their last nine Champions League home games.

That’s a W1 D3 L5 record in that span from Salzburg.

Our betting prediction:
Under 2.5 Goals
Even Money

* (odds recorded 2041 GMT September 26th 2021)


But they do look like a positive side nonetheless and have produced 214 shots in the last three seasons of the competition.

They are a young side as well, with all but one of their starting eleven against Sevilla under 25 years of age.

Salzburg are probably going to hold the initiative in this one.

But under 2.5 goals looks like the selection for football betting at even money* (odds recorded 2041 GMT September 26th 2021).

That’s largely because of Lille looking compact in defence on MD1.

Salzburg may have their work cut out to break down the visitors.


Lille Preview – Will visitors frustrate Salzburg?

There was a draw also then for Lille on Matchday 1 of this season’s UEFA Champions League.

They held out for a point against Wolfsburg.

In that fixture, the French outfit conceded just two shots in the entire game, which ended in a 0-0 draw.

So that points to some defensive strengths. Can they do enough upfront however to bag maximum points?

The win for Lille in the match tonight for Champions League betting is at 13/5* (odds recorded 2041 GMT September 26th 2021).

That’s more of a suggestion that they are more likely to be frustrating than threatening.

Lille’s Champions League record isn’t great anyway.

They have claimed just six victories from their 39 previous matches in the competition.

That’s a W6 D14 L19 record overall from their matches in the competition.

Lille have claimed one win in the last fourteen UEFA Champions League fixtures, losing 10 of those 14.

That’s a pretty shoddy record and their last win was back in 2012 at BATE Borisov.

One positive for Lille is that their last three wins in the competition have been away from home.

We see them struggling to find a winning touch.

But they look strong enough in defence to consider an HT Draw at 13/10* (odds recorded 2041 GMT September 26th 2021).

The Ligue 1 side have won back to back matches on the domestic front.


FC Salzburg vs Lille Betting Advice

The bigger attacking threat is likely to come from the home side when generally get on the front foot.

Therefore it’s Salzburg to win at 19/20 that is our first pick* (odds recorded 2041 GMT September 26th 2021).

They have won four of their last five matches in all competitions and rate as the bigger danger.


Key Facts – FC Salzburg vs Lille Betting Tip

  • FC Salzburg have won 1 of their last 9 Champions League home games
  • Both teams earned a draw on MD1
  • Lille have won just 6 of 39 previous Champions League matches


Lille shut down a positive Wolfsburg side on Matchday 1 but that was at home.

The French side didn’t look like a major threat going forward themselves, so we think they come up short.

Their Champions League record is very poor after all.

Under 2.5 goals at even money is the other pick* (odds recorded 2041 GMT September 26th 2021).
