Salzburg – Shkendija FREE PICKS

Salzburg and Shkendija meet at Red Bull Arena, in a match for this phase of the UEFA Champions League (3rd Qualifying Round). This will be the first direct confrontation between these two teams, as they have never faced each other before. Particular attention is required for the home / away condition, since both teams present significantly different results at home and abroad.


The home team will make its debut in this edition of the UEFA Champions League with the intention of conquering a positive result, taking advantage of the home factor. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 8 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses in away matches; against 14 victories and 1 draw at their stadium. The team comes to this match after a win away with Mattersburg by (0-2). In the last 10 home matches Salzburg has won 10. The defense has been strong and has suffered goals in 3 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of their last matches. the last 10 games. There is 1 period that stands out in the last 3 home matches for all competitions: they have scored 3 of their 8 goals between minutes (16′-30 ‘).

The RB Salzburg is a club that never managed to win a European title, but in the last season reached the semifinals of the Europa League (being eliminated by Olympique de Marseille) and has already conquered the Bundesliga (Austrian Championship) twelve times , with five of those titles won in the last five seasons. In this season, the team is already in the leadership of the national championship, after winning in the first two days. In the last five games that the Salzburg has played in their stadium, if we take into account the official and friendly matches, the team has always scored goals in all matches. We believe that in this match, by playing in their stadium, where it is usually very strong, and against a technically inferior team, the Salzburg will again score goals in front of their fans.


Until reaching this phase of the UEFA Champions League (3rd Qualifying Round), the visiting team eliminated: Sheriff and The New Saints. This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 17 goals scored and 28 conceded; against 10 wins, 2 draws and 3 losses at their stadium, with 27 goals scored and 12 suffered. In the last 6 away matches for all competitions, Shkendija has won 2, tied 2 and lost 2. Defensive consistency has been one of the best in the last 4 matches for this competition.

The Shkendija is a club from Macedonia that was already the champion of the Champions League of Macedonia twice. He won two Macedonian Cups and a Macedonian Super Cup. The club was champion of the 1st League of 2017/18 and guaranteed a place in the previous rounds of this Champions League in 2018/19. The challenge of reaching the group stage starts in this 3rd round, against Austria’s Salzburg, in a game that will be very difficult for the Shkendija. The Salzburg is an Austrian club that was Austrian champion many times and defeats practically all the games that it disputes in its stadium, reason why the Shkendija goes to Austria thinking about losing by the minimum difference.
