Europa League Borussia Dortmund – Salzburg 08/03/2018

Europa League Borussia Dortmund – Salzburg

Borussia Dortmund and Salzburg will meet on the 8th of March at 20:00 in the first leg of the Europa League finals at the Signal Iduna Park stadium (81,360).

Borussia has reached this stage after eliminating Atalanta in 16, 3-2 at home and 1-1 in Italy. Dortmund arrived in the Europa League after being ranked third in a Champions League group including Tottenham, Real Madrid and APOEL.

Dortmund is fighting on two fronts and aims to be placed on one of the top 4 places in the Bundesliga, to play next year in Champions, but also to win the Europa League. Currently in the Bundesliga he is in third place, and he has good chances in the semifinals.

In Germany, “yellow-blacks” have 5 consecutive matches without failure (3 wins and 2 draws).

Salzburg reached the top eight after producing a surprise, eliminating the Spanish Real Sociedad. After 2-2 in Spain (with a goal scored by the Austrians in at least 90), Salzburg scored 2-1 at home. In the group stage, Salzburg ranked first in a group that included Marseille, Konyaspor and Guimaraes.

In the championship, Salzburg goes through the clock, not picking up any of the last ten matches. Obviously he is a leader, ten points ahead of Sturm.

From the hosts, they will miss Sancho and Yarmolenko, but they are not necessarily base players in the “wasps”.

Dortmund has never been defeated by an Austrian team in the European Cups. Moreover, he won only victories as follows: Dortmund – Wolfsberger 5-0 and 1-0 in the Europa League 2015/2016, and Borussia Dortmund – Austria Vienna 1-0 and 2-1 in the 2003/2004 edition of the same competition.

The last time Salzburg played in Germany was on September 29, 2016, in the Europa League, when he lost 3-1 against Schalke. In the history of European cups, Salzburg has no win on German territory (played 5 times).

Borussia Dortmund – Salzburg Prediction

Betting houses lend Borussia the first chance to win and qualify. The same I see and I think he will try to gain the next round even after the first leg. I will therefore count on the victory of the Germans.
