Brondby IF host Red Bull Salzburg in Denmark on Wednesday for the second leg of their UEFA Champions League playoff tie.

Salzburg claimed a 2-1 victory in the first leg and will be aiming to carry on the momentum to secure their place in the group stages of the European tournament.

Brondby’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League took a blow last Tuesday as they suffered a 2-1 defeat against Salzburg in the first leg of the final qualification round.

Mikael Uhre gave Brondby the lead inside the opening four minutes, but goals from Karim Adeyemi and Brenden Aaronson helped Salzburg come from behind to claim an impressive win.

Brondby returned to the Danish Superliga where they played out an entertaining 2-2 draw against OB.

Niels Frederiksen’s side have failed to win in each of their last nine outings across all competitions, picking up six draws and losing on three occasions.

Meanwhile, Red Bull Salzburg returned to the Austrian Bundesliga to claim a 3-1 win over Austria Klagenfurt.

Karim Adeyemi’s opener was canceled out by Alex Timossi Andersson, but Mergim Berisha and Rasmus Kristensen scored to hand Salzburg the win.

Matthias Jaissle’s men have won each of their last nine games across all competitions, scoring 24 goals and conceding six.
