Atletico Madrid will try to forget what happened last week when they host Salzburg in a
match from Group A of the Champions League. Let’s take a look at this fixture in our
football prediction betting tips today.
Last week Atletico Madrid suffered one of their heaviest defeats in the Champions League
in the recent years. Los Colchoneros paid a visit to Bayern Munich in the Bavarian capital,
but they got dominated from the beginning to the end of the game for a 0-4 defeat. We
usually see Atletico as a team which knows how to defend in a brilliant way, but against
the European champions the team’s defense was unable to make a stand.
Nothing is over for Atletico in this group of course – it was just the first game. Now the
Spanish side must show its quality. Nobody can argue that there’s a lot of quality in this
During the weekend Atletico Madrid achieved another important win in La Liga. Diego
Simeone’s team hosted Real Betis in the capital and achieved a 2-0 win. Marcos Llorente
opened the score in the beginning of the second half while Luis Suarez made it 2-0 with
his 4th goal for the season.
Last season Salzburg finished third in their Champions League group and now the
Austrians will try to at least do the same. In their first match Jesse Marsch’s boys hosted
Lokomotiv Moscow at the Red Bull Arena, but only won a point with a 2-2 draw against the
Russian team.
That’s our football prediction betting tips today for the Champions League battle between
Atletico Madrid and Salzburg on Tuesday. Could it be Atleti’s first win in the competition for
the season? Most surely they are the favourites, but their confidence could be shaken after
the 0-4 defeat against Bayern Munich. Let’s see.
