Preview: Red Bull Salzburg vs. Bayern Munich – prediction, team news, lineups

German giants Bayern Munich will travel to Austria for the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against Red Bull Salzburg on Wednesday night.

Die Roten Bullen head into the knockout rounds as huge underdogs but they can be encouraged by Bayern’s surprise Bundesliga defeat to VfL Bochum last weekend.

Accumulating seven points from their opening three games put Die Roten Bullen in a strong position to qualify, before back-to-back defeats against Wolfsburg and Lille left their last-16 hopes hanging in the balance.

Matthias Jaissle’s men required at least a point against Sevilla in their final group fixture to advance, but they managed to secure all three thanks to a second-half strike from Noah Okafor, which sparked wild celebrations from the Salzburg camp.

At just 33 years of age, Jaissle deserves a lot of credit for steering his Salzburg side into the last 16, in tandem with extending their lead at the top of the Austrian Bundesliga to 14 points, with a ninth successive top-flight crown now theirs to lose.

Salzburg, who have won only one of their last six games against German opposition, now face the daunting task of going up against one of the tournament favourites in the form of Bayern Munich.

Die Roten Bullen will be familiar with the six-time European champions, after locking horns in last season’s group stage. They did, however, suffered defeat on both occasions and conceded nine goals in the process.

Wednesday’s Champions League encounter will be the fourth time Bayern Munich face an Austrian team in the knockout stages of a European competition. In each of their last three two-legged ties, they have progressed to the next round, beating Rapid Wien in the 1966-67 Cup Winners’ Cup and Austria Wien in successive European Cup campaigns in 1985-86 and 1986-87.

However, Bayern failed to win any of their three away games against their Austrian counterparts, and relied on their home form to get them over the line. Such a statistic will give Salzburg confidence, as they have a 100% home record in this season’s competition, beating Lille, Wolfsburg, and Sevilla.

Having said that, Bayern currently boast the longest unbeaten run away from home in the history of the European Cup/Champions League, as they have not lost any of their last 21 matches on the road, and the Bavarians will be strongly favoured to extend this impressive run in midweek.
