Lille vs Red Bull Salzburg Prediction
Lille’s position in Ligue 1 is by no means exceptional, the current league champions being 12th in the standings. They did a little better in the Champions League and are second in their group. However, they have only won one match so far in the tournament.
Red Bull Salzburg, on the other hand, are at the top of their Champions League, ahead of more illustrious names like Lille and Sevilla. Karim Adeyemi has been the star of the show so far and looks to be the next player to bring in a huge profit at Red Bull Salzburg, with Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich among the clubs interested.
Red Bull Salzburg should win.
