Our prediction for this Champions League match:
There will be fireworks when Salzburg and Atletico Madrid face each other at Red Bull Arena in the last round of the Champions League group stages. Los Rojiblancos are one point away from booking their place in the last 16, while this has to go down as a must-win game for the home team. Atletico Madrid did well to beat Real Valladolid 2-0 in their last league match, with Luis Suarez returning to the starting XI following his self-isolation.
Since Diego Simeone can count on key players for the decider, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts. The Red Bulls are likely to go all guns blazing at Atletico Madrid, meaning that the La Liga side will have a number of opportunities to seal the victory on the break. When the two teams met at Estadio Wanda Metropolitano earlier in the process, Atletico Madrid recorded a 3-2 win over Salzburg.
