Brondby vs RB SalzburgUEFA Champions League, KO: 20:00 Aug 25, 2021, Brondby Stadion
RB Salzburg are seeking a return to the group stage of the UEFA Champions League as they travel to Brondby Stadion for the second leg of their playoff against Brondby. Danish side Brondby have struggled in recent weeks and Salzburg will be confident of doing the double.
Brondby are looking to overturn a deficit after suffering a 2-1 defeat in the first leg. They threw away an early lead from Mikael Uhre as a second half capitulation saw them concede twice.
It has been a generally disappointing start to the season for Brondby, who have picked up just four points from six matches in the Danish Superliga. Niels Frederiksen’s men are also on a nine-match winless run across all competitions, losing three of their last four fixtures.
Brondby have also struggled at home in recent weeks and are without a win in their last two matches at Brondby Stadion. They suffered 1-0 defeat to Nordsjaelland in their last home fixture.
Salzburg showed their character in the first leg as they recovered from an early setback to claim a 2-1 victory. Karim Adeyemi grabbed the equaliser after the break while Brenden Aaronson netted the winner on the stroke of 90 minutes.
Matthias Jaissle's men are seeking an appearance in the group stage of the Champions League for the third straight season and have been in good form. Salzburg have maintained a 100% record in the Austrian Bundesliga and have won their last nine matches across all competitions.
Salzburg also have a fine record on their recent travels, winning their last seven away matches in all competitions. The one sour point is their defence that has kept just one clean sheet in their last five away matches.
