Salzburg vs Celtic In-form Salzburg host Celtic in Europa Group B clash

09:55, 01 Oct 2018

The Red Bull Arena will host this Europa League Group B clash on Thursday 4th October.

Red Bull Salzburg had the perfect start in their Europa journey winning 3-2 away to RB Leipzig. They are having a perfect run in the Australian Bundesliga with 24 points from eight matches. They are a high scoring team especially playing at home and can defend well too. A win here will guarantee them a slot in the next stage of the tournament but it will not be easy as Celtic are on form too. Forward Takumi Minamino has been scoring the important goals for Salzburg and he will be the key man upfront in this clash.

Celtic sits second in Group B table. They started their journey well beating Rosenborg 1-0 at home. They are coming from a discouraging 2-1 away loss to Kilmarnock. They are 6th in the Scottish premiership with ten points from six matches. They may not be at their best but they have the quality necessary to win this match. Forward Leigh Griffiths has been paramount for them and he will be the man to score the goals here.
