UEFA Champions League | FC Salzburg VS Inter Milan: Thursday, 09 November at 04:00 GMT +8

Austrian football’s Red Bulls started their Champions League campaign well by defeating Benfica and securing a 2-0 victory in Lisbon. However, Salzburg’s start was short-lived as they lost 0-1 to Real Sociedad and 1-2 against Inter. With three points from as many matches, the Red Bulls are four points adrift of the top two spots in Group H, and a midweek slip-up could significantly impact their chances of progressing to the knockout stage of the elite competition.

Inter’s on-field performance has not met the high standards set last season, as they only managed to salvage a point against Real Sociedad in San Sebastian. However, they capitalized on their home advantage in two UCL challenges, defeating Benfica and Salzburg. With seven points collected after three group stage matches, Inter is in a strong position to advance to the Champions League knockout phase for the third consecutive year.

The youngest team in the Champions League, the Red Bulls, suffered a 1-2 loss against Inter in matchday three, despite missed opportunities and a penalty. Despite their decent impression in the opening three group stage matches, their lack of experience cost them dearly. The Red Bulls will try to keep their hopes alive for the knockout stage, but their task will be difficult, especially given their recent struggles, including losing three of their last four home games.

Nerazzurri are motivated to travel to Austria after a 2-1 win over Atalanta, keeping them top of Serie A. Inter, with a 100% away record, has won five out of five Serie A visits, with the only exception being a 1-1 stalemate against Real Sociedad in the Champions League opener. The Italian club has triumphed over the Red Bulls in all five of their previous meetings, showcasing their dominance in head-to-head encounters.
