RB Leipzig looks to maintain their first-leg win ahead of their return against Danish champions Brondby. The match schedules for Wednesday at the Brondby Stadium with kickoff at 10 pm.
The Australian outfit overturned a one-goal deficit to end with a 2-1 first-leg win. Therefore, their main course remains to maintain past a struggling home side.
The hosts come off a 2-2 draw in the Superliga against OB. Furthermore, the side remains winless in their last eight games with five draws and three losses. On the other hand, RB Salzburg registered an impressive 3-1 win over Austria Klagenfurt.
Salzburg’s comeback against Brondby was thrilling to watch. The home side dominated the first half of last Tuesday’s opening encounter with just one chance that got them ahead by a goal at halftime.
However, things changed in the second 45 when Salzburg roared back through goals from young striker Karim Adeyemi and American midfielder Brenden Aaronson as they put up 17,000-plus fans behind their play.
The team that dominated Danish football in the past now has three consecutive losses. They qualified for this round of the competition by winning their first Superliga since 2005 last season.
Like their Danish counterparts, Salzburg also made the playoffs in 2020-21 by topping their domestic league – an eighth straight Bundesliga crown.
Matthias Jaissle’s side has made a typically strong start to the new season in Austria – recording five wins from as many matches which have already put them at the top of their table, clear of second-placed Sturm Graz.
