Bayern Munich vs FC Red Bull SalzburgUEFA Champions League, KO: 20:00 Mar 8, 2022, Allianz Arena, Munich
BAYERN MUNICH are one of the favourites to win the Champions League and they welcome dangerous dark horses RB Salzburg to Bavaria on Tuesday for the second leg clash.
The German champions are on course to retain their Bundesliga title yet again and RB Salzburg are a mile clear at the top of their own Austrian Bundesliga.
But Julian Nagelsmann's side were given a huge fright in this tie after trailing for the vast majority of the first leg before requiring a last minute equaliser from Kingsley Coman to rescue a 1-1 draw after Chukwubuike Adamu scored for the hosts to maintain their record 21-match unbeaten away run in this competition.
Bayern were showing signs of a slight wobble recently after a shock 4-2 defeat at Bochum and they also lost at home to Borussia Monchengladbach in January. But they seem to steady the ship after wins against Greuther Furth and Eintracht Frankfurt, although were far from impressive as Bayer Leverkusen held them to a 1-1 draw at the weekend.
Salzburg have been relentless in their domestic football this season – as their 4-0 weekend win over Altach showed – and have lost only once in the league to Austria Klagenfurt . But they have been defeated twice on their travels to Lille and Wolfsburg in the Champions League and the Allianz Arena will be a big ask for them.
