As a non-seed got champion Club Brugge will be a tough one to choose. Including Napoli, Inter, Sevilla, Chelsea and Arsenal were the candidates, but the Austrian champion RB Salzburg came so out of the drum.
The arrival of Salzburg in the Jan breydel stadium not for a large poster, but the Austrians are still a very treacherous opponent. Last season were they only in the semi-finals of the Europa League against Olympique Marseille, this season they showed in a more solid group with Leipzig, Celtic and Rosenborg an eighteen eighteen noted. Even more, the Austrians are this season still undefeated. In the Austrian league they left fifteen wins, three draws and no defeat record. Star players in the team are the two young Malian midfielders Diadie Samassékou and Amadou Haidara, who is already on the radar of many top clubs. The Israeli Moanes Dabbour is a real sniper.Ivan Leko satisfied with draw
Ivan Leko is “very satisfied” with the draw. “I estimate our chances at fiftyfifty,” said the Croat. “Salzburg is a good team with a good trainer. They made it 18 on 18 in the group stage of the Europa League this season, so it is no more a formidable opponent. A team from the United Kingdom or Spain may seem more attractive at first glance, but against Salzburg we definitely have a chance to continue.”
“Salzburg played last season in the semi-finals of this competition, and I think that the ambition should be for Belgian teams to get as far as possible, to get in the Europa League. We have a good campaign in the Champions League behind us and now want to do the same in the Europa League. With the support of our twelfth man, we need to be on February 14, a good starting position to get hold of.”
