Salzburg Prediction – Can Salzburg hold their own?

Salzburg have been involved in some highly entertaining and high-scoring encounters of late as the Austrian club have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 13 matches in all competitions, which was the recent 4-3 loss away at Liverpool on Matchday 2 of the Champions League.

12 of Salzburg’s last 13 matches have resulted in 3 goals or more being scored, while the hosts themselves have racked up an incredible total of 55 goals from these last 13 matches! That’s an average of over 4 goals scored per game, and with this firepower they could cause Napoli some problems here on Matchday 3.

Overall form on home turf at their Red Bull Arena has been excellent as Salzburg have recorded 7 wins on the trot with a total of 43 goals scored overall, while results at home in the Champions League have also been solid.

The hosts have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 13 matches at this level and with the likes of forwards Koita (6 goals), Daka (9 goals) and Haland (11 goals) all being in form and giving Liverpool a scare, the hosts will be confident in this clash too.

Napoli Prediction – Can Napoli contain free-scoring Salzburg?

The visitors have approached their matches in a more methodical and calmer fashion than their hosts and bring a 4-match unbeaten run into this important Matchday 3 clash away at Salzburg, as Napoli look to stay top of Group E.

Napoli still remain unbeaten after their first two matches of this group campaign with a solid 2-0 home win against Liverpool and then gaining a solid point on the road with a 0-0 draw away at Belgian side, Genk, to hand them 4 points from the first two matches.

On the Champions League stage, Napoli have shown some consistent and dependable form as the Italians have suffered just 1 defeat out of their last 8 matches in this competition, which was a narrow 1-0 loss away at Liverpool in last season’s competition.

However, switch to results away from home in this competition and we see that Napoli are without a win from their last 7 matches on their travels, and gaining just 1 win out of their last 9 matches on the road.

 

Key-Facts – Salzburg v Napoli

  • Salzburg have lost just 1 of their last 11 matches at home in the CL
  • Salzburg have recorded 7 wins on the trot with a total of 43 goals scored
  • Napoli are without a win from their last 7 away matches in the CL

 

Betting Tips Verdict

Free-scoring Salzburg therefore stand a decent chance of getting something from this clash and should at least avoid defeat here.
