Chelsea May Fail To Win Today Champions League If This Happens


After losing to Dinamo Zagreb 1-0 in their most recent match in the Champions League, Chelsea may not be able to reproduce that performance here.

Red Bull Salzburg

Red Bull Salzburg head into the meeting following a 0-3 Bundesliga win with the defeat of SV Ried in their previous outing.

Team News: Chelsea

Looking at personnel, there is just the lone fitness concern for the Chelsea gaffer Graham Potter to be concerned with from an otherwise complete group of players. N'Golo Kanté (Muscular problems) is sidelined.

We think that The Blues will probably employ a 3-4-2-1 formation for this one, beginning the first half with Kepa Arrizabalaga, Wesley Fofana, Thiago Silva, Kalidou Koulibaly, Reece James, Marc Cucurella, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount, Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz.

Team News: Salzburg

We believe Die Bullen will likely utilise a 4-3-1-2 formation using Philipp Koehn, Amar Dedic, Strahinja Pavlovic, Bernardo, Andreas Ulmer, Nicolas Capaldo, Nicolas Seiwald, Maurits Kjaergaard, Dijon Kameri, Noah Okafor and Fernando.


Our assessment is that Chelsea have it in them to put a goal past this Salzburg side, although it possibly won’t quite prevent them from conceding a couple at the other end.

We’re expecting a close game with a 0-1 advantage for Salzburg after 90 minutes.
