Red Bull started this European campaign briskly - a draw and two wins, resulting in seven points after three rounds. But the Bulls suffered two defeats away to Lille (0-1) and Wolfsburg (1-2) in the second leg. Therefore, the Red Bulls are only second in the group. As for the Austrian Bundesliga, business as usual is excellent: first place and a 12-point gap from the nearest pursuer after half a journey.
Sevilla are second in the Spanish championship, eight points behind Real Madrid. The gap to fifth-placed Real Sociedad is two points, but Sevilla have a game in hand. And they are only third in the Champions League. They are one point behind Red Bull Salzburg and two points adrift of runners-up Lille. The gap to last-placed Wolfsburg is also one point. Nothing has been decided yet.
Sevilla's first round was peaceful - three draws, two of which were pulled off by Ivan Rakitic, who converted penalties like clockwork. But in the fourth leg, the Spaniards unexpectedly lost at home to Lille (1-2). That made things very difficult for Julen Lopetegui's side, who managed to snatch a 2-0 win against Wolfsburg. To qualify for the playoffs, all you need is a win. A draw does not even guarantee qualification to the Europa League playoffs.
