Haland netted twice in the final seventeen minutes to secure the match ball and make the final score 7-1 to the Bundesliga champions. Early in the second half, Daka made it 4-0 and Farkas added a fifth shortly after, and Parndorf pulled a goal back in the seventy-first minute.

Both teams head into the 2nd leg with one defeat in their last six competitive matches, so confidence is bound to be high in both camps and that should lead to another very close game between the pair on Thursday. Each of RB Salzburgs and Club Brugges last five matches in league and cup have ended with both teams on the scoreboard, which includes last weeks 1st leg in Belgium. Just like in the 1st leg and the majority of both teams recent domestic results were expecting both teams to score once again on Thursday. The hosts won all six of their group games and were unlucky not to have at least drawn the 1st leg against Club Brugge, but their guests beat Monaco 4-0 away from home and earned draws against Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund in their Champions League group which suggests they certainly wont prove easy to defeat.
