The team of Salzburg won 5 of the last 5 games between both teams. The hegemony of Salzburg is frightening. The team sold Patson Daka to Leicester and Enock Mwepu to Brighton for a total of over 50 million EUR. Despite the gap left by the two best players within the squad, Salzburg looks solid enough to dominate the league for another season.
Both teams played some cup games a few days ago as Sturm Graz smashed Stadl Paura with 9-0 and Salzburg did the same with WSC Wels 4-1. The cup games could be considered the first official for the new season. Now it is time for the start of the domestic league.
What is it Going to Happen?
The opening games are always thrilling and teams are more prone to risk more in the attack. We are expecting an open game with many chances on both nets.
