Partizani – Salzburg

Tuesday, July 26, at 21:15, Partizani gets visit to Salzburg, in a duel in the first leg of the Champions League Third Qualifying.

Partizani is an old participating in European Cups, but from what it seems, has become a constant presence in the last two years. If last year were laid eliminated from the first of the Europa League 1-4 with Stromsgodset, now did surprise Champions League, eliminating a shootout champion from Hungary, Ferencvaros (2-2 overall and 3-1 after penalties). Thus, Albania champion managed highest performance in club history.

Salzburg is the best team in Austria, again winning the championship and now has targeted Champions League. They entered the main panel since the second preliminary round, when they eliminated a step in Liepaja FK, 0-3 on aggregate. However, Salzburg official competitions began nearly three weeks disputand four matches, including the match against Sturm Graz in the first stage of Tipico Bundesliga, lost 1-3 at the weekend.

Albanians successful performance in the previous round of unsuccessful developments came amid those from Ferencvaros not have exceeded those from Partizani condition. However, Salzburg is an experienced team that knows how to treat these games quite intelligent, so have no major problems, although in the previous round was a little overdone in the first game with an opponent of the same caliber as Partizani. I think a victory for the Austrians, most likely provided by at least two goals and thus the return of Austria to be a formality.
