Football best betting tips for Salzburg – Lok Moscow
Salzburg hosts Lokomotiv Moscow at the Red Bull Arena in a match from Group A of the Champions League. What are your expectations for this game? Let’s discuss it in our football best betting tips for today.
Salzburg return to the Champions League for a second consecutive year. They don’t have the two stars Erling Haland and Takumi Minamino anymore, but the American manager Jodie Marsch is still on board and he’s working in a tiredless manner. Salzburg continue to dominate the Austrian Bundesliga and they’d be happy to at least replicate their performance in the Champions League from the last season. This is when they won 7 points in their group and finished third.
Salzburg started the 2020/21 season in an impressive way. They are currently enjoying a run of 8 consecutive wins in all competitions. Two of them were against Maccabi Tel Aviv in the Champions League playoffs. They look like a team which is not easy to play against at the moment.
Lokomotiv Moscow are ready to play their first Champions League game for the season. The Russian club finished second in the domestic Premier League which allowed them to qualify directly for the Champions League. They didn’t play any qualifiers or playoffs.
On Saturday Lokomotiv prepared with a win for their travel to Austria. Marko Nikolic’ team hosted UFA in the Russian Premier League and enjoyed a difficult, but important 1-0 win. The Polish international Grzegorz Krychowiak scored the only goal in the game in the 67th minute. Ze Luis provided the assist.
These are our football best betting tips for the Champions League match between Salzburg and Lokomotiv Moscow on Wednesday. We believe the Austrians are the favourites here because they should be better adapted to their own ground. But in the same time we must remind you that Lokomotiv are a serious team as they represent the Russian Premier League.
