Atletico Madrid hosts Red Bull Salzburg in round 2 of the Champions League group stage. The match will be played on Tuesday, October 27th at Wanda Metropolitano (Madrid)
Atletico got a full thrashing from Bayern Munich in the form of 0-4, but you must understand that the Mattress Makers could not count on a few key players, and this result happened. Simeone's men played without two regular center defenders Savic and Jimenez, they could not count on Saul in terms of the creation, and Diego Costa was not available at the helm. The Suarez-João Felix connection did not work in the attack, but the team needs time to find its best game.

After a 2-2 draw with Lokomotiv, the Bulls limited the leaders' time in the match with Austria in Vienna (Soboslai, Dhaka, Koita, and Junuzovic were replaced early). After all, the bench allows the team to do that in the Austrian Bundesliga. The Bulls managed to put the squeeze on the rival in the second half of the match, winning with a 2-0 score and retaining freshness for an important match in Madrid.
The teams have never crossed their paths before. Several factors play in favor of Salzburg's goal. The Bulls remained fresh after the match in the local championship, while Atlético has no such opportunity, and they continue to actively build a slightly different team. Beyond that, the hosts have problems with the center defenders – although Savic and Jimenez recovered, they did not gain their best shape. Moreover, the attacking style of the Austrian club suggests that it will play well. I think the visitors will manage to score a goal.
Prediction for the match: Salzburg to score over 0.5 goals
