Salzburg v Atletico Madrid Tips: TwoPoundPunt's Wednesday fancies
They say Red Bull gives you wings and that certainly was the case for Leipzig last night as they flew into the knockout phase of the competition with a 3-2 win over Manchester United. Wednesday evening see’s Red Bull Salzburg have the chance to progress to the last 16 with Atletico Madrid, the side visiting the Austrians. After a lovely 22/1 winner on Friday evening @TwoPoundPunt is on hand with two football tips for the game that pay 19/1 as a double with betfair.
Joao Felix to score, Dominik Szoboszlai 2+ shots on target - 19/1 betfair
Atletico Madrid just need to avoid defeat here to make it through into the knockout stages, however that is often easier said than done, just look at Manchester United last night. With Simeone at the helm no second-rate performances will be tolerated and I think they will have more than enough to see this through.
The first group game between these two sides ended 3-2 to Atleti thanks to a late winner from Joao Felix. It is rare to see Atleti involved in a game with so many goals and I would be shocked to see anything similar tonight.
For Salzburg, their main threat will come down the left-hand side with the highly rated Dominik Szoboszlai. Across the five Champions League games this season he has two goals and is averaging 2.2 shots per game. As mentioned above the onus is on the home side to get a result and they hardly need a reason to attack at the best of times. I am backing him for two or more shots at a juicy 11/2.
For Atlei, Joao Felix has been their main man and is starting to look the part following his hefty transfer fee. The forward has three goals in five appearances so far this term, including a double in the reverse fixture. Atleti know that a goal would be huge in helping them through to the next round and if they are to score, he is the likely suspect.
The double currently pays 19/1 with betfair. Good luck if you are following the selections and please always gamble responsibly.
