Salzburg’s under-19 footballers have successfully defended their lead in the youth league. The Young Bulls celebrated their 3-2 away win over Inter Milan on Tuesday despite having a numerical superiority for more than half an hour, which means they have seven points in the fourth group after three rounds. Salzburg’s goals were scored by Adam Daghim (26th minute), Zeitini Janou (40th minute) and Benjamin Atiabu (94th minute). Goals from Gabriele Vidovati (74) and Matteo Spinacci (96) were not enough for Inter.
Salzburg’s Marcel Muswitzer received a red card in the 63rd minute for stealing a goal. His coach Onur Senel said: “In general, we had a great first half, perhaps the best in the Youth League so far.” The second round was “turbulent.” “We started to gamble too much in some positions. It broke our necks a little bit, a couple of situations led to counter-attacks and one of them led to a red card.” ÖFB assistant boss Ralf Rangnick still speaks of a “very deserved victory” for his team.
