Competition: Europa League
Market: Schalke to win against Salzburg
Odds: 8/11 @ Bet 365
German Bundesliga strugglers Schalke 04 welcome Austrian Bundesliga side Red Bull Salzburg to the Veltins-Arena in the Europa League tonight, and are favourites to pick up all three points to maintain their perfect start in the competition.
Schalke haven’t picked up a point in their domestic league this season, but they have enjoyed a win in their opening Europa League group game. The home side won away to OGC Nice in their first Group I clash and could go top of the table with victory over Salzburg tonight.
And with the visitors struggling for form in Europe as well as struggling for goals on the road, Salzburg could fall short when the two sides meet at the Veltins-Arena. Salzburg have failed to score or win in two of their last three away games in the Austrian Bundesliga, and lost their opening game to Krasnodar in Group I.
A win could see them go level on points at the top, but their form ahead of tonight’s European encounter could see them come unstuck even with Schalke’s results being inconsistent of late. As a result, Bet 365 are giving odds of 8/11 for Schalke to win against Salzburg.
