Sevilla uncork its bottle of this Champions League, the one with the bubbly stars, with a duel against Red Bull Salzburg, a priori inferior rival but who arrives with two unpredictable dangers: his great youth and the winning inertia that give 10 wins in the 10 games what has played this season (follow the meeting live on As.com). Lopetegui has his entire squad, the majority rested after the international break and the postponement of the league game against Barcelona. Ocampos and Óliver Torres recovered and returned from France, after staying, Jules Koundé. On the disposition of the Parisian defender after his frustrated sale to Chelsea will pivot one of the keys to the performance of Nervione this season.
Without the pressure of Sánchez-Pizjuán and in a league where he has no real competitor, in which he has almost won the last eight titles with the cap The Red Bulls of Mozart's city have become a veritable machine for exporting footballers who reach the front line. Most of them live their first stop at the brand's brother, the German Leipzig. With the tremendous Erling Haaland as the maximum exponent, Mané or Keita (now in Liverpool), Upamecano (Bayern), Caleta-Car (Marseille) or, lately, the Zambians Mwepu (Brighton) and Patson Daka, for which Leicester has just paid 30 million euros. Daka scored 34 goals in 42 official duels last season, but was soon forgotten in Salzburg: Adeyemi, who is already international with Germany, has seven goals in a brilliant start.
Munas Dabbur also scored many goals before coming to Sevilla in 2019. The Israeli striker lasted just six months in Nervión, the same that happened that same year to the Viennese defender Max Wöber, who is now head of the rear at Red Bull. Wöber, doubts today due to muscular problems, is only 23 years old but has become almost a veteran within the youngest squad of this Champions League, with just over 22 springs on average. Solet (21), Camara (21), Seiwald (20), Aaronson (20), Sesko (18) or Adeyemi himself, only 19, are usually part of the starting eleven that the also precocious (33 years old) directs Mathias Jassle, a German newcomer to the Austrian bench this summer.
