Likely Winner:

  • Salzburg has gotten off to a strong start in the Champions League, taking up four points in their first two group games. The Austrians are still unblemished in all competitions this season, but they dropped points for the first time in 2021/22 against Altach over the weekend.
  • Wolfsburg haven’t been in great form of late, with a six-match losing streak before Wednesday’s Champions League encounter. The Bundesliga side has lost both of their away games this season, which isn’t great preparation for the trip to Austria.
  • Salzburg may be missing two of its top forwards, which will benefit Wolfsburg, who will see the hosts’ absenteeism as an opportunity to return home with a point.

Match Odds:

Salzburg: 8/7
Wolfsburg: 11/4
