Sevilla take on the visitors Salzburg in the round 1 match of UEFA Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Tuesday, September 14th at Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán (Sevilla).
Sevilla is the favorite in the upcoming match. There is no way to dispute this status – after all, the team has quite good seasons behind them in European competitions, as well as a generally stronger selection of footballers. The home field advantage for Sevilla means a lot. The team, most likely, will now be able to work reliably in their half of the field. Defense is the most important component of the game in Seville. And the coaching staff pays great attention to this component. Sevilla will act carefully – as always. The team may well find a number of good counterattacks, since the Austrian opponent does not defend very well. And only at the expense of playing at speeds Sevilla can score several goals. And then go back to your own half, and feel as comfortable as possible.

Salzburg’ approach is the opposite to Sevilla’s one. The Austrian team loves to play fast and openly. Many talented performers constantly appear in this club. First of all, we are talking about an attack. So now, Salzburg has players who can run, beat and score a lot of goals. The Austrian domestic championship is the clearest confirmation of this. However, one should take into account the fact that Salzburg feels so comfortable only against teams of a significantly lower level. Now, against Sevilla, it will be difficult in absolutely all game components. The away team does not know how to play solidly in defense. And this problem may well manifest itself on the road in Spain. After all, the opponent attacks very well and effectively. Perhaps this will become the main problem of Salzburg.
These clubs had faced each other a long time – almost 15 years – ago. However, even then Sevilla showed that it is stronger than the representatives of the Austrian championship. Sevilla started relatively modestly – the team won twice, but could not beat Elche on the road. The distribution of the bookmaker’s quotes is now more likely in favor of the home team. This is absolutely logical, since Sevilla is a seasoned European Cup fighter. All players have a good experience of playing at the highest level, and this puts the team in a favorable light against Salzburg. And in terms of tactical Austrian team is unlikely to surpass Sevilla.
