RB Salzburg are enjoying a fine start to their UEFA Champions League campaign and will be looking to maintain their good form when they travel to Wolfsburg on Tuesday. The hosts will be keen to continue their improvement under their new manager but could be in for a tough outing against an in-form Salzburg team.

Wolfsburg were unable to maintain their positive start to the season and recently went on a run of just one win in nine matches. That poor run led to the departure of manager Mark Van Bommel with former Werder Bremen boss Florian Kohfeldt the new man at the helm.

Kohfeldt's reign got off to a perfect start last weekend as Wolfsburg claimed a 2-0 victory over Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga. Lukas Nmecha and Maximilian Arnold got the goals as they ended a run of three straight defeats.

Wolfsburg will be looking to maintain their new manager bounce and carry that form into the Champions League where they are winless after three matches. However, they are likely to find things difficult against Salzburg against whom they suffered a 3-1 defeat last time out in the competition.

After years of constantly crashing out in the group phase of the Champions League, RB Salzburg finally look on course to progress to the knockout stage. They are unbeaten after three matches in the competition and are four points clear at the top of Group G.

It has been a generally superb start to the campaign for Salzburg, who are actually yet to taste defeat across all competitions this season. They are once again dominating in the Austrian Bundesliga and have won their last two Champions League matches.

Goals have not been a problem for Matthias Jaissle’s men, led by Karim Adeyemi, who scored the opener in the victory over Wolfsburg last time out in the Champions League. However, their open style means they are often vulnerable at the back and have kept just one clean sheet in their last seven matches across all competitions.

How the bookies view it

The bookies appear split on this one with a win for Wolfsburg priced at 7/5 with Unibet while SBK is offering 15/8 for a Salzburg victory. A draw is set at odds of 11/4 by bet365.

Head to head

Salzburg’s 3-1 victory in the reverse fixture was the first ever meeting between both teams.

Players to watch

Lukas Nmecha appears to be coming into some form for Wolfsburg and has found the net in two of his last three matches. The striker was also on target in the reverse fixture and is priced at 37/20 by Unibet to score anytime.

Karim Adeyemi remains the biggest attacking threat for Salzburg and has scored three goals in his last two Champions League matches. Unibet has the young striker at 8/5 to find the net on Tuesday.

Anything else catch the eye?

Salzburg often features in high-scoring encounters with the reverse fixture against Wolfsburg producing over 3.5 goals. A similar outcome is priced at 7/4 with bet365 while over 2.5 goals is valued at 5/7 with 10bet.

Salzburg scored in both halves in the reverse fixture and could be set for a repeat at 5/2 with Skybet.
