SALZBURG VS ATLETICO MADRID PREDICTION

Salzburg have the opportunity here to pull off a huge shock, with victory over Atletico Madrid on Matchday 6 seeing them overtake Diego Simeone’s men into second place in Group A, sending them into the UEFA Champions League knockout stage at the Spanish side’s expense. However, despite Salzburg having scored ten goals in their group games they have played so far, this will prove their biggest challenge yet. Atletico, knowing the ramifications of defeat will set up organised and compact, no doubt proving incredibly tough for the Salzburg attack to breach. This may prove a battle of attack vs defence and with the visitors boasting the superior squad on paper, under 2.5 goals looks likely, taking into account the big match experience within the Atletico side.
