Red Bull Salzburg vs Partizani: Preview and Prediction
Red Bull Salzburg vs FK Partizani:
Champions League Qualifiers.
Date: Wednesday, August 3, 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:30 UK,
Venue: Red Bull Arena (Wals-Siezenheim).
Salzburg will host Partizani this Wednesday at Red Bull Arena for the second leg of the UEFA Champions League qualifying third round.
Salzburg managed a 1-0 win over Partizani in the first leg of the fixture, this has given them a huge advantage. Jonatan Soriano did well to convert the spot kick to give Salzburg the lead in 70th minute, that goal also gave them an away goal advantage as they go into this second leg of the fixture.
Partizani were unfortunate to lose at home last week, but the worst happened in the 73rd minute when Reinaldo Kalari picked up a straight red card bringing them down to 10 men, and limiting their chances of equalizing. They now have to go extra mile and make sure they win by 2 goal margin and above to qualify for the next round.
