Betting Preview: RB Leipzig v Salzburg: Stake on seeing lots of goal action in Saxony

Punters can expect a highly-explosive game in what is the first ever competitive meeting between the energy drink-owned teams

RB Leipzig and Salzburg lock horns at the Red Bull Arena in Group B of the Uefa Europa League on Thursday night.

Die Bullen qualified for Europe’s second-tier competition after finishing sixth in the German Bundesliga last term.

They did make it to the quarter-finals of this same competition after finishing third in the Champions League Group G and a win on their turf is quoted at odds of (1.80) with Bet365.

Die Rotten Bullen did start from the group phase of the Europa League last term and made it all the way to the semi-finals before losing to eventual runners-up Marseille.

RB Leipzig Salzburg PS

Kicking off their European campaign for the 2018/19 season against their sister team does make for a really exciting game with the same betting firm offering odds of (4.33) for Ralf Rangnick’s men to win big in the German state of Saxony.

A stalemate at the end of 90 minutes is priced at (3.60).

If there’s one thing common to both Leipzig and Salzburg is that they are free-scoring sides.

They scored a combined 138 goals in the German and Austrian Bundesliga last term and we can expect to see lots of goals in this maiden encounter.

A pick of three or more goals with the two sides finding the back of the net at odds of (1.90) as per Bet365 should be rewarding for punters.
