Red Bull Salzburg will have to pull their socks up if they are to qualify for the Champions league.
The Austrian champions were defeated 1:0 by Luxemburg’s tiny F91 Düdelingen squad in the second round of the qualifiers and need a win at home next week if they’re to go through.
Pundits described the visitors as undisciplined, tired and completely outclassed as they were defeated in front of a jubilant home crowd of just 1,567 spectators. And with a difference of 30 million euros between the two teams, the Salzburgers should feel ashamed.
Trainer Roger Schmidt described their efforts as „completely unacceptable”. He added: „Düdelingen completely deserved the win. The only thing to be positive about is that we still have a return match to win.”
It was the team’s worst Champion’s League defeat since they fell at the hands of the Faroe Island’s HB 1904 Torshavn two years ago.
