Salzburg to Win

There is a huge gap between RB Salzburg and WSC Hertha. The former is playing in Austrian top-flight football, while the latter is involved in the fourth tier, the Regionalliga Central to be precise. This difference is compounded by the fact that Hertha’s last competitive fixture was in October last year, while Salzburg was fighting for the Austrian Bundesliga title as early as the end of May. Therefore, it is difficult to think past RB Salzburg in this fixture.

Total Goals Over 2.5

Neither Salzburg nor Hertha have played a competitive fixture in the 2021/21 campaign. Both have preseason friendlies under their belts and it is difficult to ascertain how the teams fare in competitive environments. However, based on Die Roten Bullen’s performances, one expects them to score freely. Their last six fixtures have featured at least three goals and this should not be any different.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

It will be the first match of the season and the nerves will be there. Given their long absence from competitive football, WSC Hertha are bound to make mistakes, there is only so much that the training ground can prepare you for. RB Salzburg will not be immune to this, especially as they get used to Matthias Jaissle’s playing style. Coupled with the fact that Die Roten Bullen have only kept one clean sheet in their four club friendlies shows that they are prone to conceding. Expect Hertha to fancy their chances and give their much-fancies rivals a run for their money.

Hertha vs Salzburg Fixture Preview

WSC Hertha

A year is a long time in football. This would be the chief concern for the WSC Hertha management, who need to get their squad in competition shape against the reigning champions. Their performances in preseason club friendlies would not have given their fans much hope and this is a genuine cause of concern. Despite this, they will fancy their chances in this fixture. An upset would put their names in the club’s folklore, immortalizing their feat against the best Austrian football has to offer.

Salzburg

Jesse Marsch will head RB Leipzig, replacing Julien Nagelsmann. The American leaves a gaping hole at the Austrian Red Bull Arena, one that Matthias Jaissle will have to bridge. His first order of business will be to ensure that Red Bull Salzburg manage to progress in the Austrian Cup. As the holders, a lot stands on their shoulders, especially against a team four rungs down them. Given the disparity in quality, Salzburg are expected to progress but it is how they achieve this feat is of importance.
