RB Salzburg vs Lazio: Biancocelesti to prove cut above again

Kick Off: 2005, 12/04/2018

Stadium: Red Bull Arena

TV: BT Sport

Lazio have the upper hand in their Europa League tie with RB Salzburg following a 4-2 win in Italy and another entertaining encounter is expected in Austria.

Both sides were incredibly open at the back at Stadio Olimpico, when Salzburg twice came from behind to equalise before fading late on.

We’re kicking off our RB Salzburg vs Lazio betting predictions for the second leg by taking 31/20 there are again more than three goals scored at Red Bull Arena.

A Look At Red Bull Salzburg’s Betting Odds

Salzburg hadn’t lost in any competition since August before travelling to Rome and a strong sense of self-belief helped them stay in the tie.

Valon Berisha converted coolly from the penalty spot and the Austrian outfit drew level for the second time in the 71st minute through substitute Takumi Minamino.

Manager Marco Rose told the club website: “I think we could have done better, but the two goals keep us in it to some extent.

“It was a hot-blooded match. My team offered a high intensity again and made a fight of it.”

However, it’s hard to ignore the manner in which Salzburg were carved open on the break late on.

That will be an issue again as they try to chase this game, so we reckon 33/20 for an away victory is fair value from the RB Salzburg vs Lazio odds.

A Look At Lazio’s Betting Odds

Lazio haven’t always seemed fully focused in this competition but showed why they are the highest scorers in Serie A this season in the opening encounter with Salzburg.

Senad Lulic, Marco Parolo, Felipe Anderson and Ciro Immobile were all on target as the Italian outfit looked a cut above their opponents.

“The team behaved well,” manager Simone Inzaghi told the club website. “We had several players coming back from injuries, but they showed great heart.”

The Biancocelesti have had no trouble scoring away from home this term either, so the stage is set for them to hit Salzburg on the break.

We’re adding 35/2 for a 3-1 away win to our RB Salzburg vs Lazio betting tips.
