Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Red Bull Arena will host the Champions League qualifier between Salzburg and Maccabi Tel Aviv. The Red Bulls did well to win the first leg (2-1), and, as a result, they are on the verge of booking their place in the Champions League group stages for the second time in the history of the club. The Austrians champions did well to break the “group stages spell” last term, and, no doubt, they head into the decider with no pressure this time out.
Maccabi Tel Aviv, on the other hand, failed to impress in the first leg. The Israeli champions have no other choice but to go all guns blazing at Salzburg, meaning that the hosts will have opportunities to score on the break. Considering that Maccabi are not regarded as good travellers, anything but a routine home win would be a big surprise.
