It’s the gameweek 5 in the UEFA Champions League, and top European teams would face each and battle it out to win the prestigious trophy. This time it’s a big match in Group E as Red Bull Salzburg will host their group rivals Chelsea Football club at the Red Bull arena.
Now this match is crucial for both teams cause whichever team wins this match will most likely top the group. Despite being in a complicated group, the Austrian side still hasn’t lost a game in the Champions League and they’ll be looking to continue that streak against the Premier League side.
And the last time these 2 teams faced each other at Stamford Bridge, it was 1-1 draw between them, hence it clearly shows that Salzburg do have the potential to pull off a shock result against Potter’s men.
However, beating the Premier League giants won’t be easy for Matthias Jaissle’s side cause since the sacking of Thomas Tuchel, the Blues have been magnificent under their new manager Graham Potter.
They are currently top of their group and know that if they win this game, they’ll not only qualify for the knockout stages but also finish in the 1st position. But beating Salzburg at the Red Bull arena won’t be easy for them cause teams like Bayern Munich, Sevilla and Milan have failed to win here in the previous years.
And with the sensational crowd support that the Austrian team would be getting might just make them win this match.
