Bayern Munich vs RB Salzburg prediction: How will Champions League fixture play out tonight?

Bayern Munich drew 1-1 with Bayer Leverkusen in the Bundesliga over the weekend

RB Salzburg will look to spring a shock when they take their 1-1 draw from the first leg to the Allianz Arena to face the mighty Bayern Munich with a Champions League quarter-final place at stake

Chukwubuike Adamu gave Salzburg a shock lead on 21 minutes in the first leg at the Red Bull Arena and it required a 90th-minute Kingsley Coman goal to ensure the German champions are level heading into the return fixture.

Bayern have reached the Champions League quarter-finals in nine of the past ten seasons and are currently nine points clear of second-place Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga but did drop points at the weekend, as they could only draw 1-1 with Bayer Leverkusen.

Meanwhile, Salzburg are aiming to become the first Austrian side to progress beyond the last 16 in the European Cup/Champions League since FK Austria Wien managed it back in the 1984-85 campaign.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the second leg tie.

What’s the team news?

Bayern are missing a few key men through injury – including Corentin Tolisso, Manuel Neuer, Alphonso Davies and Leon Goretzka – but they will have Thomas Muller available after he returned from illness to play against Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.

Salzburg’s injury list is even lengthier as a slew of players are currently unavailable – Albert Vallci, Sekou Koita, Ousmane Diakite, Bryan Okoh, Benjamin Sesko, Jerome Onguene, Noah Okafor and Oumar Solet all expected to miss the game.

Okafor and Solet started in the first leg but have been struggling with hamstring and muscular problems respectively in the weeks sinc, meaning Karim Adeyemi and Kamil Piatkowski are in line to start instead.

Prediction

Salzburg equipped themselves well in the first leg but Kingsley Coman’s late goal put Bayern in control of the tie. At the Allianz Arena they are almost unstoppable and should have more than enough to reach the quarter-finals. Bayern 3-1 Salzburg (4-2 on aggregate).
