Salzburg v Dortmund match odds


Salzburg v Dortmund betting tips

Salzburg are in the driving seat coming into the second leg and perhaps showed signs of having one eye on this contest at the weekend, after playing over 80 minutes with 10 men and threw away a two-goal lead in their 2-2 draw with Mattersburg. Champions of Austria last season, Salzburg currently boast an eight-point lead at the top of the table in the Austrian Bundesliga and look well on their way to winning yet another league title.

They were outstanding in the first leg meeting between these two sides, stunning Dortmund by claiming a 2-1 victory at the Signal Iduna Park, as Valon Berisha scored a brace. Berisha is one of the stars of this team and will be vital to ensuring they continue their strong record at home in this competition, with the club finding themselves on a run of six games unbeaten in the Europa League on home soil.

As for Dortmund, they secured a much-needed three points at the weekend after beating Eintracht Frankfurt 3-2, with Michy Batshuayi netting twice from the bench, including the winner in the 94th minute. After going four without a win, coach Peter Stoger made the decision to leave Batshuayi on the bench, which proved to be an inspired decision after he proved to be the team’s match winner late on.

It’s going to be a real uphill battle for Dortmund to come away from this fixture with a place in the quarter-finals, with this competition representing their only opportunity of winning silverware this season. 21 points behind Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga and already eliminated from the DFB Pokal, the Europa League remains their only opportunity of making this a successful season.

They will need their dynamic forward quartet of Batshuayi, Marco Reus, Mario Gotze and Andre Schurrle to be in top form to stand a chance, though when you have such firepower it’s impossible to rule them out entirely. However, with Salzburg unbeaten at home since November 2016, it’s going to take a monumental effort from Dortmund to progress to the next round.
