Salzburg after 0: 0 dissatisfied: will match return to the away match?
SALZBURG. On Wednesday thousands of Red Star Belgrade fans are expected in Austria
Salzburg Munas Dabburg was disappointed after the goalless draw in the empty stadium in Belgrade.
Actually, you should be satisfied after a 0-0. A victory in their own stadium separates Red Bull Salzburg in the return home against Red Star Belgrade (Wednesday 21 hours) from the first participation in the Champions League group stage. And yet these 90 minutes will be very hot again.
There is a lot of fear that on Wednesday there will be at least half a match. Although the club has done everything to sell the ticket quotes to its own fans. However, it is already clear that many more maps than just those from the corner sector will go to Serbian fans. After the ghost session on Tuesday in Salzburg next week, it will certainly be hot. Already on Tuesday, 15,000 tickets were sold. Yesterday there were no more cards left to buy online. It can be assumed that the "final" will be sold out for the Champions League campaign.
The return of Belgrade yesterday saw the Salzburg players only partially satisfied. Of course we were hoping for a slightly better result, "confirmed Marin Pongracic, who falls back on the middle.
For Zlatko Junuzovic, who had a thigh problem on Tuesday, it is a race against time to get fit for the crucial second stage. "The chances of progress are still 50-50, Red Star defended very well, made the rooms very tight, we did not enter the dangerous zone as we had imagined." The use of the veteran would therefore be important to bring peace to the Salzburg game. The pressure is great, everyone wants to finally shake off the "Champions League curse" in the eleventh attempt. Never before has the chance to make the group stage for the last 90 minutes as big as now. Coach Marco Rose was still critical. "There was a lack of conviction to harass the opponent, I know what we can do aggressively and once we were done, cleanliness was missing on the last pass."
Red Star coach Vladan Milojevic defended his defensive tactic. "We played against the semi-finalists of the semi-final of the Europa League." It can be assumed that Salzburg in the second stage also expects a similar game of patience with a destructive opponent.
