Salzburg delivers a real spectacle at the start of the Champions League group phase.
Away at the favored Sevilla FC, there is a 1-1 draw in the end. (Match report >>>). The first half in particular had a lot to offer. Four penalties were whistled – three of them were awarded to Salzburg. However, only one of the three was used.
After an exclusion against Seville, the Mozartstadters also played in the majority for almost the entire second half. A circumstance which, however, did not produce a winner.
LAOLA1 analyzes the performance of all Salzburg players and distributes grades (1 = very good, 2 = good, 3 = satisfactory, 4 = sufficient, 5 = insufficient).
PHILIPP KÖHN – 90 minutes – Grade 2
The Swiss hardly showed any uncertainties on Tuesday. Shortly before the break, your heart stopped short when he dropped the ball in an aerial duel. In the second half he was just right with a dangerous header from Rafa Mir to intercept the game device on the line. When Lamela headed shortly afterwards, he was lucky that the ball flew past the goal.
RASMUS KRISTENSEN – 90 Minutes – Note 3
An offensive rather inconspicuous appearance at half time by the Dane, who has been able to come up with more goals this season. Defensively, Kristensen was hardly getting past. His defensively stable performance was given a more offensive touch in the second half after RBS was outnumbered. Going it alone after an hour was not rewarded.
OUMAR SOLET – 90 Minuten – Note 2
Very noticeable appearance of the French central defender, who also often appeared offensively. His long-range shots were not crowned with success, neither was his close-range shot, which he hammered over the empty goal from an offside position. Defensively, Solet often had to correct the mistakes of his teammates and was the last man to win very important duels again and again.
MAXIMILIAN WÖBER – up to the 51st minute – grade 5
Very mixed appearance of the former Sevilla defender. The return to Andalusia was a very flawed one. Again and again Wöber jumped past the ball. Shortly before the break, the central defender caused the only penalty in the game that Sevilla was allowed to shoot with his foul on En-Nesyri. Rakitic promptly took advantage of Wöber’s clumsy defensive behavior. Shortly after the break, Wöber had to make way for Piatkowski.
ANDREAS ULMER – 90 minutes – Grade 3
After an inconspicuous appearance in first half, a lot of Ulmer could be seen, especially in the final phase of the game. With his offensive actions in the last few minutes, he again initiated the best opportunities for Salzburg. Defensively, the veteran sprinkled one or two small mistakes, which were usually quickly corrected by his fellow men.
MOHAMED CAMARA – 90 minutes, yellow – grade 2
Camara was strong as the most defensive midfielder, was very active and won most of his tackles. A few attempts at switching by the Andalusians usually ended when Camara intervened. In the closing stages he saw yellow. However, nothing that would tarnish the overall picture of his performance.
BRENDEN AARONSON – 90 Minutes – Note 3
Compared to his offensive colleagues, the American did not come into his own quite as often in the opposing sixteen. Because of his running performance and his great commitment in pressing behavior, however, he stayed in the field until the end. In the closing stages he almost struck with a long shot, but Bono confidently parried his long-range shot.
LUKA SUCIC – 90 minutes, penalty goal, penalty missed – grade 2
The 19-year-old Croat was one of the main players in the first half. With his converted penalty in the 21st minute, he shot Salzburg in the lead. Then he took the penalty again, but only put the play equipment on the bar. But Sucic also made an impression outside of his standard situations and was always an asset in the offensive game of the “Bulls”.
NICOLAS SEIWALD – up to the 79th minute, yellow – grade 3
Sovereign Champions League debut of the U21 team player from Austria. Seiwald played well both offensively and defensively, his passes repeatedly leading to promising RBS attacks. There were no dangerous degrees to be seen by the 20-year-old, and his standards also brought little danger today.
BENJAMIN SESKO – up to the 67th minute – note 3
The Slovenian gave another dangerous counterpart to strike partner Karim Adeyemi on Tuesday, and with his running paths he repeatedly opened spaces that his teammates knew how to use, especially in first half. Shortly after the restart, Sesko almost put Salzburg in the lead, but his volley from close range was parried by Bono. After a little over an hour, it was over for him.
KARIM ADEYEMI – up to the 79th minute, penalty missed – grade 2
Very strong performance of the DFB team player, which is only clouded by his missed penalty in the 13th minute when he passed the ball on the right of the goal. However, one must also note how he took the penalty before that. Something he did two more times in first half. In other respects, too, Adeyemi was always responsible for his individual actions when things got dangerous from Salzburg’s point of view.
KAMIL PIATKOWSKI – from the 51st minute – grade 3
He came onto the field for Wöber at the beginning of the second half and delivered a sovereign performance, small mistakes in his defensive behavior went unpunished. With the counterattacks from Sevilla in the second half, he had his problems one time or the other.
JUNIOR ADAMU – from the 67th minute – grade: 3
Came in at a stage in the game when Salzburg was about to relinquish the command. In the closing stages, however, he let go of another dangerous shot from an acute angle, which in the end was not a big task for Bono.
NOAH OKAFOR – from the 79th minute, yellow – used too short
NICOLAS CAPALDO – from the 79th minute, yellow – used too short
