In search of a miraculous turn the Salzburg receives Napoli this Thursday, March 14, in game by the schedule of the return round of the round of the end of season 2018/2019 of the Europa League. The Red Bull Arena will take place in Salzburg, Austria. The start is scheduled for 14:55 (Brasília time).In Naples, the Italians took the field goal and thrashed 3-0. Thus, they will be able to move to the next stage in case of new success, draw or defeat by up to two goals difference. If they shake the Austrian net, even failure with a margin of three goals will be enough to make progress in the dispute. The owners of the house are left to seek a thrashing by four or more goals of advantage. In case of return of the marker, the regulation establishes an extension of 30 minutes in which the goal scored away from home serves as a tiebreaker. Only in case of a goalless draw in extra time will there be decision through penalties charges. For the definition of the crosses of the quarterfinals the Uefa, entity that organizes the competition, will make a new draw, without there being any direction in the confrontations.
Salzburg targets at least a victory of pride against Napoli in the return of the optimal Europa League, after the failure in the score of the tour, 0-3. The Austrians arrived last year in the semifinals and passed the groups with maximum points, while UEL can be the only trophy of the Italians this season.
The defeat suffered in Italy was the third in a period of less than a month. What could be something normal in so many other teams is unusual in Salzburg, which before this series of stumbling was nine months without losing.Initially, the lack of pace of play could even be pointed out as one of the causes of its drop in income. After all, the team that achieved 100% success in the first phase of the Europa League ran out of action between December and the end of the first half of February, when the strong Austrian winter forces the paralysis of the game schedule in the country.However, after seven official games, that is no longer enough to justify the stumbles, which won another item on the list on Sunday, March 10. At home, Salzburg did not leave the 0-0 against Sturm Graz in a clash for the twenty-first round of the Austrian Championship. Nothing that shakes your leadership. He has 52 points (16 wins, four draws and one loss). The advantage for Linz, runner-up, has dropped, but is quite comfortable, nine points.For Thursday’s meeting, coach Marco Rose is expected to have to deal with two casualties due to injury problems. They are in the care of the medical department the defender Marin Pongracic and the midfielder Jasper van der Werff.
The draw was also the result of Napoli in their commitment on Sunday, March 10, by the twenty-seventh round of the Italian Championship version 2018/2019. Away from home, he stayed 1 to 1 with Sassuolo.His situation in the tournament is also practically defined. With 57 points (17 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses), he is in second place and will hardly leave the post with 11 days to go. The difference for Juventus, leader, is of gigantic 18 points, something, in practice, irreversible.The only threat even comes from below. Milan, third place and on the way of income, has six points less. But in this case, the position is not so important. The bottom line, in this case, is to be in the top four, which guarantees a place in the 2019/2020 edition of the Champions League. Thus, what counts is the margin of front with respect to Rome, placed fifth. The difference is ten points.Coach Carlo Ancelotti has practically all the squad at his disposal for this Thursday’s meeting. The only exception is the Spanish defender Raul Albiol, still in the care of the medical department.
