RB Salzburg

RB Salzburg

RB Salzburg's home venue, the Red Bull Arena in Salzburg, offers enough space for up to 30188 visitors. The Austrian group is currently trained by the German Marco Rose. The selection is currently active in the Bundesliga AT (group stage - 22nd matchday) on the first position in Group Championship Round with mostly decided games. Meanwhile, RB Salzburg have been eliminated in the fourth qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League and in the round of 16 against SSC Napoli of the UEFA Europa League despite not even a lost game and the first position in Group B. A total of 43 goals were scored, 29 of 36 games were won and 32 goals were conceded - the majority of them in the Bundesliga AT. With a 100% win rate in away games against SKN St. Polten, this rival seems to be the most trivial for the Austrian team.

In the first half, the group often tends to gain an advantage. Albert Vallci, Marin Pongracic, Jasper van der Werff and Andre Ramalho (centre back), Zlatko Junuzovic (left wing), Antoine Bernede (midfielder) plus Amadou Haidara (right wing) were on the starting line-up with 19 other pros in the current season. RB Salzburg was not particularly experimental in terms of formations in the current season. In their latest match of the Bundesliga AT against LASK Linz the group wanted to try something exotic with the 4-3-3 formation (W/D/L: 8/1/2). Finally RB Salzburg won the triumph with 2 to 1. The goalkeepers of the team have done a good job in securing opposing shots.

With an average height of 182cm, the pros of the football eleven tend to be in the normal range like their rivals. RB Salzburg's last triumph against SKN St. Polten was on 15 September 2018, when both clubs met three more times. The last game took place on 21 April 2019. In the 36 meetings since 16 March 2005 the point account of RB Salzburg against SKN St. Polten is 71. The team has given up a game since August (against Club Brugge), although they were leading in the first half. The team managed to pick up six successes from the 80th minute. Quite amazing was the 27th group phase game of the Bundesliga against RZ Pellets WAC on April 24, 2019, in which it stood 0-1 until Jerome Onguene, Takumi Minamino and Munas Dabbur realized three goals in the minutes 90, 87 and 90.

Although RB Salzburg were behind in the first half, they managed to earn a positive point difference in two such matches against SK Sturm Graz and Celtic FC since August. This happened in spectacular 50% of such matches, so the selection seems to work well under load. In summary, the team weighs more than two elephants, but on average even 4.7 kg less than the average European. With 88 kg, this value is most significantly exceeded by the 35 year old jersey number 33 Alexander Walke. Not against every opponent could the football team win as many times as against SKN St. Polten (32/1/3). The most violent opponent is SK Rapid Vienna with 88 successes, 54 draws and 63 defeats on the part of RB Salzburg.

In the team, 17% prefer the right foot. The offside rule (on average three times) applies more frequently to the team than to the opponents (on average once less per game). It therefore seems too offensive to act. Although the multitude of professionals measures about 24 years, the 189cm tall right foot Alexander Walke has the lion's share in this respect. With 15 wins and not even a defeat, the 4-3-1-2 arrangement is currently the most successful of RB Salzburg. Norwegian right-footed Fredrik Gulbrandsen scored SAL's latest goal of the current season 44 seconds before the final whistle against SKN St. Polten.

Only 44% of the 16 goal shots per game (average) ultimately hit the box. With a score of 88 triumphs, 54 draws and 63 failures against SK Rapid Vienna in SAL's own arena, this team is also the toughest competitor there. After a disadvantage of two points, the maximum of the current season, against Club Brugge in the round of 32 of the UEFA Europa League, was accepted anyway a defeat. In the end the game ended 1 - 2. RB Salzburg took the biggest possible advantage of the first half of five goals in the 18th group phase match of the Bundesliga against SKN St. Polten. In the end, the Austrian group won 5 to 1.

The most common substitutes are keeper Alexander Walke, midfielder Enock Mwepu, strikers Patson Daka and Smail Prevljak plus defenders Jerome Onguene and Darko Todorovic. The 23-year-old Malian Diadie Samassekou scored the farthest goal of the current season on 24 November 2018 in the 15th group phase match of the Bundesliga against TSV Hartberg from 18m distance in the 49th minute. It only took 119 seconds for RB Salzburg to concede the fastest goal of the current season. This was shot by Odsonne Edouard (SKN St. Polten) in the second group stage match of the UEFA Europa League. The selection have suffered exactly one defeat in the current season just before the end of the game, namely 90 days ago against Club Brugge after a goal from Wesley in the 81st minute.
