Inter Milan are gearing up to complete a clean sweep over RB Salzburg as they head to the Red Bull Arena for another UEFA Champions League Group D fixture this Wednesday. The Nerazzurri, with their impressive form, are expected to have the upper hand over a Salzburg team that has been struggling in the tournament.
RB Salzburg fell to a 2-1 defeat against Inter in their last Champions League encounter, with Oscar Gloukh scoring their sole goal. That loss marked the Austrians’ second consecutive stumble, a stark contrast to their bright start with a 2-0 win over Benfica on the opening matchday.
Taking a closer look at RB Salzburg’s recent track record in the Champions League isn’t the most encouraging view, with just two victories out of their last 11 games in the competition, a disappointing trend since 2022. Gerhard Struber’s squad has also experienced four losses in their past five Champions League outings.
Translating their domestic success to the European stage continues to be RB Salzburg’s Achilles’ heel. Domestically, they’re leading the charge in the Austrian Bundesliga, having secured a 2-0 win against WSG Tirol last weekend.
Inter Milan, on the other hand, are on a mission to prove that their last season’s journey to the Champions League final wasn’t a one-off. They’ve kicked off Group D without a loss, starting with a draw against Real Sociedad, followed by consecutive wins, with contributions from Alexis Sanchez and Hakan Calhanoglu.
Simone Inzaghi’s side is also demonstrating their might in Serie A, topping the league and only facing one defeat in all competitions this season.
The Nerazzurri’s away record this season has been particularly stellar; they’ve not lost a single match on the road, boasting five wins and a draw from six away fixtures. They approach the clash with Salzburg on the back of a 2-1 victory over Atalanta in Serie A last weekend.
Previous Encounters Inter Milan have a flawless record against RB Salzburg, having won all three encounters, including a 4-3 triumph during a friendly at the Red Bull Arena in August.
