Champions League preview
The Champions League group stage kicks off on Tuesday, and the coming months will be filled with twists and turns as teams look to finish in the top two places to reach the knockout rounds. Sevilla and Red Bull Salzburg will be hoping to finish in the top two positions in Group G, in what appears to be one of the most open groups. Sevilla have started the new La Liga season in decent form, earning two wins and a draw in their first three games. However, they will need a better performance in their first Champions League game after drawing 1-1 in their most recent national outing against Elche. They fell behind early in that match, before Youssef En-Nesyri scored five minutes before halftime to salvage a point.
Salzburg have dominated a lot in the opening weeks of the Austrian Bundesliga season, as they are the only team in the league to have a 100% record after seven games have been played. They have the best attacking record and the best defensive record at this stage of the campaign. Salzburg also needed to get through a challenging playoff match to reach the group stage, as they beat Brondby 4-2 on aggregate. Both games were won 2-1, which includes their success away from home, where they scored twice in the first ten minutes. Benjamin Sesko scored the first winning goal over the Danish side, while Brenden Aaronson extended that lead just six minutes later.
