RED BULL GIVES YOU WINS ........
AUSTRIA .... BUNDESLIGA RED BULL SALZBURG - WACKER INNSBRUCK
Salzburg are the best home team in Austria (11-1-1), where their artificial pitch gives them a big advantage. The defending champions are currently in 4th spot, but just two points off the top, with second also playing third this evening, they could reach the summit with a win.They are in good form and have won their last three at the Wals Siezenheim Stadium, with a 10-0 goal difference.
Red Bull have been suffering a little lately with injuries and suspension, but that situation has cleared up a little and only Niko Kovac and Rene Aufhauser, plus two long term injured, remain sidelined.
Wacker are struggling and are poor on the road, with a 1-3-9 record, which includes a 3-1 defeat in Salzburg, earlier this season. They have lost on their last 5 visits here, all by two or more goals.
The hosts are closing in on another title defence and I see no reason for Innsbruck to offer much in the way of opposition.Their only away win win came at basement club Karnten and there is a big difference between these two, both in terms of budget and playing ability.
5.5 points Red Bull -1.75 goals 1.92 asian line.
