The champions of Austria and Denmark meet and the former have the better recent history in the Champions League, having reached the group stage for the past two seasons.

Salzburg have made a perfect start to their title defence, winning their first four matches by an aggregate score of 12-2 with Karim Adeyemi scoring five of those goals.

The departure of coach Jesse Marsch for RB Leipzig does not seem to have affected them and his successor Matthias Jaissle will be keen to maintain the momentum in the Champions League.

Salzburg are massive favourites at 2/13 to win the first leg but for a bigger price in Champions League betting tips, Adeyemi can be backed to score the opening goal in a home win at 9/4.

Brondby have endured a miserable start to the Danish season, failing to win any of their first five games with three draws followed by back-to-back defeats.

It is hardly surprising therefore that they are 18/1 underdogs and Salzburg are 23/20 to win both halves as they look to build a commanding lead to take into the second leg.

Verdict

Karim Adeyemi has been instrumental in Salzburg's success early in the season and we are backing him to score the opening goal in this match and for the Austrian champions to triumph.
