We are heading to Austria where Salzburg will host Lokomotiv Moscow in a match from
Group A of the Champions League. Here are our football best betting tips for this fixture.
Let’s go.
Salzburg are part of the Champions League for a second consecutive year. Last season
the Austrians left good impression with their performance and finished third in their group.
They managed to win 7 points in total which was a decent achievement.
During the Champions League playoffs Salzburg faced Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv and
they managed to progress after two wins. The team is still managed by the American head
coach Jesse Marsch who continues to prove himself as a capable manager in European
football. Maybe his next job will be in a much stronger league than Austria’s Bundesliga.
In their last game in the Austrian Bundesliga Salzburg faced Hartberg and enjoyed a
stunning 7-1 win. They are leading the standings with four wins from four matches played.
Lokomotiv Moscow finished second in the Russian Premier League which allowed them to
qualify directly for the Champions League group stage. Right now Lokomotiv are one of
the strongest teams in Russia, so the whole country expects a good performance by them
in the Champions League.
In the Russian Premier League Lokomotiv Moscow are currently 4th with 21 points won
and a record of 6 wins, 3 draws and 2 losses. At the same time they are in a run of four
consecutive wins which proves they are in a good shape at the moment. Can they show
the same performance in Europe, though?
That’s our football best betting tips for the Champions League fixture between Salzburg
and Lokomotiv Moscow. The Austrian team should have a slight home advantage here,
but without fans at the stands it’s not much of a decisive factor.
