“We aim to take some points tomorrow. We know we are facing very strong opponents, and we have great respect for the coach and the team. We need to bring our strengths onto the pitch and play with a lot of confidence, above all,” he said.

    RBS need at least 9 points to move to next phase – meaning win all home matches and bit of luck away.
    Athletico are in decline.

    Good luck gentlemen!!

    I don’t think so, RB will again find itself in Europa champions league….in group stage, they will end up at 3 position, just like last season.

    I’m very happy that our team is doing well.We hope it will not reach here it’s still performing and I wish all the best to Patson Daka and Enock Mwepu. Another encouragement goes to Daka ,he should concentrate to this team ,he shouldn’t rush to move because Salzburg works as a team comparing to others.

    Greetings fellow Chipolopolo fans! We got to watch the Salzburg v Madrid match today and it sure was exciting. Mwepu played a strong 90 minutes. It was really sad to see Daka go out with an injury after 30 minutes and Madrid proceed to score before he was replaced. Plays like that don’t seem fair but I realize it’s not against the rules.

    Ba Zamfoot or a fellow fan please find out the seriousness of Daka’s injury as soon as you can and update us. It looked like a hamstring injury but the match was broadcast in Spanish so I didn’t get an explanation. Thanks everyone!
