We have already reached matchday two in the Champions League, and RB Salzburg will look to build on their 2-0 win over Benfica in their opening European fixture when they host La Liga outfit Real Sociedad on Tuesday.

Goals from Roko Simic and Oscar Gloukh ensured Salzburg got off to a perfect start, while Lautaro Martinez denied Sociedad.

La Real were 1-0 up at home, but the Inter Milan ace levelled matters with minutes to go to ensure that the game finished in a 1-1 draw.

RB Salzburg vs Real Soociedad Betting Tips:

  • Real Sociedad to win @ 11/8
  • Over 2.5 goals @ 10/11

Team news:

Austrian giants Salzburg do have several players unavailable for Tuesday’s early kick-off, with Fernando, Moussa Kounfolo Yeo, Lukas Wallner and Justin Omoregie all expected to watch from the stands.

Bryan Okoh is also a doubt, with many expecting him to miss out due to a hamstring injury, although a return to action may not be too far away.

Sociedad left-back Kieran Tierney is expected to miss the clash after only playing 25 minutes in the 3-0 Basque Derby win over Athletic Bilbao.

A hamstring injury continues to trouble the Scotland international, while Martin Meruelanz will not return until late October.

Arsen Zakharyan is a doubt due to illness, but Imanol Alguacil still has a decent squad at his disposal.

Match Odds:

This is one of those games where the Betfred traders firmly believe any result is possible. The latest betting prices as of the time of publication are RB Salzburg 7/4 to get the win with Real Sociedad a 11/8 play. You can bet on the draw at 21/10.

The popular Both Teams to Score market is erring towards it coming in as 8/11 is what you can get for ‘Yes’ with ‘No’ Even money. Over 2.5 goals is the slight underdog at 10/11 with the under a 4/5 play. A tight low-scoring affair is clearly what the market is hinting at.

When it comes to the Correct Score market, as you would fully expect, the high-scores are long prices. 1-1 is the most likely outcome according to Betfred at 5/1 with the away win 7/1 to win 1-0 and the home side 8/1 to take home the points with the same scoreline.

Real Sociedad to win @ 11/8

La Real have continued to play an exciting brand of football recently, and they will be tough to stop on the road this week.

They were close to beating Inter last time out in Europe, who many would label as the best team in Group D. Rather than let that draw unsettle them, they have won three in a row, and confidence will be high after their Basque Derby success.

Salzburg may have won in matchday one, but they were helped out by a Benfica red card, and they were also beaten in their last match at home, losing 1-0 to Blau-Weib Linz.

Over 2.5 goals @ 10/11

We expect Sociedad to prevail on Tuesday, but we also anticipate the match being a high-scoring affair.

Sociedad have won their last two matches to nil, but both teams scored in their four games beforehand.

Salzburg have won 4-0 in two successive matches, so it would not be a massive shock to see them find the back of the net.

However, across the 90 minutes, they should be second best and it should be the visitors who secure all three points.
