Atletico Madrid are hosting Salzburg at the Wanda Metropolitano in a match from Group A of the Champions League. We are going to take a look at it in our football prediction betting tips today.
Atletico Madrid didn’t start the new Champions League in the way they hoped to. Diego Simeone’s team had the tough challenge to face Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena and it didn’t go very well. The Spanish side conceded four times and suffered a 0-4 defeat in the Bavarian capital. It was one of Atletico’s worst defeats in Europe since Cholo Simeone is managing the team.
Now Atletico Madrid have the chance to react. They always aim to reach the knockout phase of the Champions League, so you can be sure Los Colchoneros will be looking for the three points here.
On Saturday Atleti achieved another win in La Liga. They faced Real Betis at the Wanda Metropolitano and took the three points with goals from Marcos Llorente and Luis Suarez. For the Uruguayan striker it was a 4th goal from the beginning of the season. It seems he’s playing well since his move to Madrid.
Salzburg won a point in their first Champions League game for the new season. The Austrian champions faced Lokomotiv Moscow in the first match and aimed to win, but only made a 2-2 draw at the Red Bull Arena. It was Szoboszlai and Junuzovic who scored for Jesse Marsch’s team.
That’s our football prediction betting tips today for the Champions League game between Atletico Madrid and Salzburg at the Wanda Metropolitano. There’s no doubt Los Colchoneros will try to redeem themselves after the horrific loss against Bayern Munich. Now they have a good chance to do it because they are stronger than Salzburg.
