Salzburg vs Bayern Munich

Julian Nagelsmann’s side arguably save their best football for the UEFA Champions League, and come into this clash with a 100 per cent winning record from the group stage after netting 22 goals across six fixtures.

Salzburg

The UEFA Champions League finally returns for knockout football with two national champions doing battle as Austrian top dogs Salzburg play host to nine-time consecutive Bundesliga victors, and one of the tournament favourites, Bayern Munich. Arriving on the back of three straight competitive victories and sat 14 points clear at the top of the Austrian top-flight, Salzburg will be full of confidence in what is their first-ever UEFA Champions League knockout tie. Matthias Jaissle’s side perhaps couldn’t have drawn tougher opposition than Bayern given their H2H record and previous form against German outfits in European football. Conceding three goals on average across those six outings, Salzburg’s backline will be greatly tested again here, but they’ll likely use a policy of ‘attack is the best form of defence’ after netting two or more goals in four of their previous five matches.

Bayern Munich

Visiting Bayern were stunned last weekend by midtable Bochum as they lost 4-2 on the road after conceding four first-half goals in the Bundesliga for the first time since 1975/76. Julian Nagelsmann’s side arguably save their best football for the UEFA Champions League, and come into this clash with a 100 per cent winning record from the group stage after netting 22 goals across six fixtures. Progressing on all three previous occasions when facing Austrian sides in knockout European football, Bayern will smell blood again in this clash given their 21-game unbeaten run in UEFA Champions League action at opposition grounds! During that streak they netted an impressive 2.86 goals per outing, including a 6-2 away H2H victory during last season’s group stage.

 

Salzburg’s rising star Karim Adeyemi has netted 18 goals across all competitions this season – including four in the UEFA Champions League – of which 14 came after half-time. Meanwhile, Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski netted twice at the weekend, taking his tally to 37 strikes across 30 club matches this campaign. He also has three goals in two previous H2Hs. Eight of Bayern’s last nine UEFA Champions League victories saw them lead at half-time.
