Looking at Red Bull Salzburg vs Celtic Prediction, we have LIVE In Play, head to head and team news. Red Bull Salzburg play host to Celtic at Red Bull Arena.
Salzburg again failed to realize the dream of competing in the Champions League, after losing to Red Star Belgrade in the last round of the play-offs. Marco Rose's team dominated the match. But two quick goals from Red Star Belgrade in the second round, wasted a great opportunity for Salzburg to appear in Europe's elite competition.
Now they are forced to look for better results in the Europa League, after the defending champions Austria performed superbly in this second European caste competition last season. The Bulls even went into the last four, where they were defeated by Marseille.
Salzburg began their journey in the Europa League this season well. They managed to defeat the rival who is their own friend, Red Bull Leipzig, with a score of 2-3 in Germany on the opening day of the group stage.
Now Celtic will visit Austria with good capital. They beat Rosenborg 1-0 in the Europa League opening day at Celtic Park two weeks ago. Brendan Rodgers' side had to fight hard to break the deadlock until the 87th minute, when Leigh Griffiths scored the only goal in the match.
However, the appearance of The Bhoys in the domestic league this season suffered a decline. They are currently only ranked 5th in the league standings, 5 points adrift of league leaders Hearts.
Celtic's attacking line looked barren after the departure of their former mainstay striker Moussa Dembele, who moved to Lyon this summer. The Bhoys only have 7 goals in 7 league matches so far.
On the other hand, Salzburg won all 9 league matches, with 24 goals in the process.
Based on Red Bull Salzburg vs Celtic head to head, the two teams were in the same group for the same competition four years ago. Salzburg was more successful at that time, having claimed 4 points from 2 matches against Celtic.
