Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 3/5 @ Bet 365
With a Premier League opener against Manchester United fast approaching, Chelsea will make the trip to the Red Bull Arena in Austria on Wednesday night.
Starting with the hosts, after securing their 13th Bundesliga title with a 12-point buffer last season, RB Salzburg are an overwhelming favorite to reclaim their Austrian crown this season. With many tipping them to be the greatest side in Austrian history, Jesse Marsch’s men once again impressed in their 2-0 win over Rapid Wein in their Bundesliga opener last weekend and have now won their last five matches across all competitions. Also tasing defeat just in once since the end of April and continuing to shine in the final third during pre-season, a huge part of Salzburg’s continued success has been their form at the Red Bull Arena. The defending Bundesliga champions have lost just once on home soil since January 2018.
As for the visitors, while Chelsea may have managed to snatch a dramatic 4-3 win over Championship outfit Reading last weekend, Frank Lampard will be desperate for his side to improve on their defensive issues before they make the trip to Old Trafford next week. Along with shipping three goals against a Royals side that only held a three-point buffer over losing their Championship status last season, the former England midfielder has seen his side record just one clean sheet since the middle of May, including a 1-1 draw against Irish outfit Bohemians earlier in the month.
