Guimaraes – Red Bull Salzburg: Preview & Prediction
The Europa League is back at the D. Afonso Henriques Stadium next Thursday at 20:05 with Vitória de Guimarães welcoming the Austrians from Red Bull Salzburg. Vitória de Guimarães will start their UEFA Champions League group I participation after a series of poor European performances, in contrast to the Austrian side, who are aiming to complete a series of ten unbeaten matches in UEFA competition. The Vimaranenses will participate for the third time in the group stage of the Europa League, but never managed to pass to the phase to eliminate. Regarding the Portuguese championship, the minhotos won the Boavista this Sunday, 1-0, returning in this way to the triumphs, after three games without winning. They are a team still under construction, looking for the best shape, and with some gaps regarding the team of the previous season. Already the side supported by Red Bull, Austrian champions and UEFA Cup finalists in 1994, having managed to overcome the UEFA Europa League group stage in three consecutive editions last season failed to repeat that feat. In the championship, the Austrians are runners-up with 14 points, having conceded a two-ball home draw this weekend against Vienna’s Rapid. In a group that also includes the teams of Marseille and Konyaspor, who will start well will be closer to the qualification.
In three of the last five games played by Vitória de Guimarães there were over 2.5 goals.
In four of the last five games played by Red Bull Salzburg there were over 2.5 goals.
In the only meeting of the Austrian side with Altach, there were more than 2.5 goals in both games (1-4 and 2-1).
Vitoria Guimaraes Red Bull Salzburg betting odds
The Portuguese are keen to win, but on the other side have an Austrian team very used to these wanderings. They are two formations with attacking tendencies, which favor a football of attack in favor of the defensive organization. And so we believe in a game with more than 2.5 goals.
