But Salzburg are not the only ones missing key players with Wolfsburg missing their primary marksman Wout Weghorst, who has not been included in the squad after testing positive for Covid-19.

Salzburg vs Wolfsburg Prediction

Salzburg to win - BET NOW

 

Bookmakers have Austrian Bundesliga side Salzburg as favourites for this game and it is hard to argue with that logic.

Salzburg have hardly put a foot wrong domestically, winning ten of their 11 league matches, scoring 27 goals and conceding only six goals in the process.

And they have already pulled off some big results in Group G, opening with a hard-fought 1-1 draw with Sevilla before beating out-of-sorts Lille 2-1.

That win came on home soil and they can make the most of home advantage against Wolfsburg, who have drawn both of their opening Champions League games and have struggled in the Bundesliga recently.

The Wolves have suffered three straight defeats against Hoffenheim, Borussia Monchengladbach and Union Berlin and have dropped out of the top five as a result. They are worth opposing in Salzburg.

Over 2.5 goals - BET NOW

 

Wolfsburg may be missing key striker Weghorst for this contest but it should still be an exciting affair and a bet on over 2.5 goals at a shade of odds-on is enticing.

Salzburg are an attacking side who have netted at least twice in five of their last six assignments and last season they saw 27 goals in their six group matches in the Champions League.

Wolfsburg, meanwhile, have seen both teams score in four of their last five competitive fixtures, enhancing appeal about backing a high-scoring contest.

Karim Adeyemi to score at anytime - BET NOW

 

Following Patson Daka's departure to Leicester City over the summer, Salzburg have been in search of someone to shoulder the goalscoring burden and youngster Karim Adeyemi seems to fit the bill.

The 19-year-old is the Austrian Bundesliga's leading goalscorer with eight goals in ten matches and scored both of his team's goals from the penalty spot against Sevilla.

Given he is on spot-kick duty, he looks an excellent option to score at anytime for the home side against Wolfsburg.
