Salzburg Team News

The Salzburg team has been dominant in the domestic championship in recent years. They are the nine-time consecutive champion of Austria, and the fact that they are increasingly competitive in European competitions is best demonstrated by their participation in the round of 16 of the previous season.

This year, Salzburg looks amazing, they are currently the first-placed team in the domestic championship, and in the Champions League, after four rounds, maintain a status of the unbeaten which makes them the second-placed team in the group with six points won.

Salzburg enters this match after a streak of 17 games without defeat, which speaks for itself about their form. Precisely, they did not impress in the draw with Sturm over the weekend, but used that opportunity to rest several first team players for today’s match.

What happens to be worrisome preceding this match are certainly numerous problems with injured players. In this match, they will be without Fernando, Kamerio, Tijani, Omoregie and Okoh. Apart from them, the performance of Nicolas Capaldo and Sekou Koita is questionable.

Chelsea Team News

The Chelsea team made several changes in the team before the start of this season and at the onset of the season under the leadership of Tomas Tuchel they did not seem the best. Therefore, it is not surprising that Tuchel was replaced and the new name on the bench is Graham Potter, under whose guidance the team performs really well.

Neto, Marcus Tavernier and Ryan Frederics took their place in the starting 11 immediately after joining the team, and together with the reinforcements in the form of Rothwell, they will certainly play a huge role in the team this season.

With the strategy of Graham Potter, the team played five games in the Premier League. They registered three wins adding the draws with Brentford and Manchester United the previous week. Under his leadership, they recorded two victories over Milan in the Champions League as well as a draw with today’s opponent. It is evident that the team has been playing better since Potter came to the bench, and he has improved the game of the last line the most, which has only conceded a goal from Manchester United in the last six games.

Chelsea has no particular issues with injured players prior to this match. They cannot rely only on Kante, James and Fofana who have been sidelined for a long time while the performance of Koulibaly is uncertain.

Head-to-Head

  • These teams have played only one duel so far this year when the meeting at Stamford Bridge ended without a winner.

Salzburg vs. Chelsea Prediction

Admittedly, Chelsea has better quality individuals than Salzburg, therefore, enter this match in a class of their own. They outplayed them at Stamford Bridge as well, but then they did not take advantage of their chances and remained without a win. However, Salzburg have not known a defeat since the seventh month, and the question is whether betting on Chelsea is worth it at the current exchange rate.

Salzburg conceded only three goals in four Champions League games, while Chelsea’s back line looks much better since Potter’s arrival on the bench. Therefore, we believe that betting on the under is the best option in this match.
