MOSCOW – Salzburg hoped for the knockout round of the Champions League with a 3-1 win against Lokomotiv Moscow on Tuesday.
The Austrian club moved up to third place in Group A via Lokomotiv and were kept in competition thanks to Bayern Munich’s late equalizer in Tuesday’s 1-1 draw with Atlético Madrid. Salzburg will host Atlético in their last group stage game next week and qualify with a win.
Lokomotiv is fourth in the group and cannot finish third, even if it beats European champions Bavaria next week. Lokomotiv can finish level on points with Atlético but the Spanish club have a superior head-to-head record against the Russian side.
Mergim Berisha scored twice to give Salzburg a 2-0 lead at halftime in the Russian capital. He scored his first hit after a loose ball when two more shots were blocked and his second after a pass from Sekou Koita.
Lokomotiv showed signs of a possible late comeback when substitute Anton Miranchuk in 79. He scored a penalty after his team-mate Ze Luis was pushed into the penalty area. Two minutes later, Salzburg restored their two-goal lead when 18-year-old Karim Adeyemi scored a goal.
