Red Bull has gathered 3 points in this Champions League run and currently occupies the third spot, 4 points off the second place. In the Austrian league, the 'bulls' are leading the tournament table with 29 points, two points ahead of the closest competitor. The team secured a 2:0 win over Tirol over the weekend. Head Coach Gerhard Struber deploys a 4-3-2-1 formation.
Red Bull has got back on the winning track in the national championship, and players talk about a positive atmosphere in their interviews. The coaching staff is keen to get a playoff spot, and the club no longer looks like a newcomer in Europe's main cup tournament. The high number of injured players is a huge issue for Struber forcing constant reshuffling. Salzburg likes and knows how to press, but against some more prominent rivals this season the process looks chaotic leading to defensive failures.
Inter has accumulated 7 points in the Champions League group, and the club may already secure a playoff berth in this round. In Serie A, the squad is battling for the gold medals, occupying the top spot with 28 points. Head Coach Simone Inzaghi employs a 3-5-2 setup. In the last round of the Italian championship, his players outsmarted Atalanta on the road 2:1.
The team's top goal scorer is Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez, who has already scored 13 goals. Against Atalanta, Inzaghi effortlessly broke through the opponent's pressing by including defenders in the attacks, a similar pattern can be expected in Austria. Inter is a team that follows the coach's instructions.
Head to Head
The opponents have played 3 matches between them, with Inter always proving stronger. In the first round, the Italians triumphed with a 2:1 score. The hosts dominated on the field and more carefully implemented their chances.
