Preview: RB Salzburg vs Brentford B

Bees go for second Italian tour game against Austrian opposition

8 December 2018

This afternoon, Brentford B will take on a youth team from Red Bull Salzburg in Northern Italy. 

The second squad started their tour of the Mediterranean country with a win, after needing a late goal to overcome Brescia Calcio U21s in Coccaglio. Joe Hardy netted twice that day, taking his season tally to 17, while David Titov continued his rich form in front of goal with another strike. Icelandic Under-21 international Kolbeinn Finnsson also struck his fourth goal of the campaign on Wednesday evening.

Jaakko Oksanen is the only B Team player missing from the squad after suffering an injury against Met Police FC in the London FA Cup. Matej Majka was a doubt ahead of the first game but managed to make the bench, this time he'll be hoping to get some minutes against The Bulls.

RB are from the Austrian Bundesliga and play their home games at Red Bull Arena. The Club was rebranded in 2005 from SV Austria Salzburg after being bought by Red Bull GmbH. Before the switch, the Club played in an all-violet strip but that has now been replaced by red and white. Founded in 1933, the team won its first domestic league title in 1994, reaching the UEFA Cup Final that same year.
