In the first leg, six-time European champions Bayern Munich and Salzburg played out a 1-1 draw at Red Bull Arena leaving this round of 16 tie up in the air. Historically, the German powerhouse have got the better of their Austrian neighbours, with Salzburg seeking a first win against Bayern in what would be their fourth attempt. In three Champions League matches on home soil this season, Bayern have secured all nine points on offer with 13 goals scored and two conceded. Bayern have a three-match home unbeaten streak (two wins and one draw) in all competitions.
Salzburg, meanwhile, will be looking for their first away match win in the competition this season, as they have two losses and one draw on the road. That being said, those were narrow defeats at Wolfsburg (2-1) and Lille (1-0). In their last six matches in all competitions, Salzburg have won four and drawn two. They’ve scored 12 and conceded three over that stretch, netting first in three of the six. They had six goals in the first half, while their opponents netted two times before the break.
