Bayern Munich vs Red Bull Salzburg | Preview & Betting Prediction

Before the first leg, we predicted an easy win for the German giants and then watched as they escaped Austria with a barely-deserved point.

This time, they will be aware of what the Austrian side is capable of and should be better equipped to deal with them. In theory.

Bayern have looked pretty ordinary in recent months and there’s a real worry around the Allianz Arena that Salzburg could pull off an improbable win to dump the German champions out of the first knockout round.

Salzburg on the other hand head into this fixture aware that as the underdog, they’re under zero pressure. If they play like they did at home and make slightly better decisions, then Bayern are in trouble.

So… who qualifies and heads to the next round?

Bayern Munich vs Red Bull Salzburg Prediction
Going out at this stage is unthinkable for Bayern. The Red Salzburg side have been very good in this tie and like we said, if they can play the way they did in the first leg, they’ve got a chance here.

However, Bayern Munich are at home. No matter how badly they’ve played, Bayern always seem to rally in the biggest moments and we expect the same thing here.

Our pick: We’re going with a Bayern Munich win here.
