This Europa League tie is finely poised heading into the 2nd leg on Thursday, With Belgian side Club Brugge taking a narrow 2-1 lead to Austria. Both teams picked up wins on Sunday and should head into Thursday’s match with plenty of confidence. RB Salzburg will be keen to make up for their defeat in Belgium after having more of the possession and creating just as many chances to score as their 1st leg hosts.
Salzburg were beaten for the first time in this year’s Europa League in last week’s first leg when they lost 2-1 in Brugge. They took a first half lead through Zlatko Junuzovic but were unable to hold on as the Belgians struck twice after the break.
Marco Rose’s men will head into Thursday’s clash in good form having claimed 10 wins and two draws in their last 12 home matches in the Europa League. They are coming off a 2-1 victory over Wiener Neustadt in the Austrian Cup with Dominik Szoboszlai and Moanes Dabour getting the goals.
Club Brugge earned a 2-1 win in the first leg last Thursday with Stefano Denswil and Wesley getting the goals. However, they tend to struggle on their travels in the competition having suffered three defeats and two draws in their last five away matches.
Ivan Leko’s team are coming off a 3-1 victory at home against Genk in the Belgian First Division. Clinton Mata open the scoring on 21 minutes while further goals from Siebe Schrijvers and Ruud Vormer sealed the win for the Belgians.
Dabour has scored six goals in Europe for RB Salzburg this season, while Brazilian striker Wesley, who scored in the 1st leg against RB Salzburg, has netted three times in European competitions for Club Brugge so far. We’re confident that both teams will score in Thursday’s 2nd leg, and have backed RB Salzburg to win the game.
