Red Bull Salzburg Team News
In the last couple of seasons, Salzburg often didn’t have luck in a draw for the Champions League and they always got in a group with two fantastic teams. Firstly Liverpool and Napoli, then Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid, and now AC Milan and Chelsea. Last season they got an easy group and they finished in second place.
By every projection and prediction, Salzburg will fight for third place with Dinamo Zagreb but with the current state of AC Milan and Chelsea, they are not without any chances to fight even for the first two places.
Milan and Chelsea are struggling at the start of the season with results and style of play and Salzburg can exploit that.
Salzburg has a very young and talented squad. They showed us in the last couple of seasons that they can be a very tough team to beat, especially at home. Currently, they are in the run of six consecutive wins and their coach Matthias Jaissle rotated the squad in the last league game and keeps key players fresh for the AC Milan visit.
AC Milan Team News
The champion of Italy will play his second consecutive season in the strongest European competition. Everyone is hoping that this season will produce much better results than last season when AC Milan finished in the last place in a group with Liverpool, Atletico Madrid, and Porto with only four points.
This summer wasn’t that good with new signings and every AC Milan fan is very disappointed with the recruitments that they made.
The Rossoneri made a good start to the season with three wins and two draws in the first five games and a big injection of self-confidence is a victory against fierce rival Inter Milan on Saturday.
For AC Milan is very important to start the group stage with positive results from the first two games against Salzburg and Dinamo Zagreb, because against Chelsea they can count on points and it will be much more difficult for them if they failed to collect six or at least four points in the first two games.
They had never met before in a European competition.
Team News and Injuries
RB Salzburg: Samson Tijani, Bryan Okoh, Sekou Keita, Luka Sucic, Kamil Piatkowski, and Justin Omoregie are injured.
AC Milan: Alessandro Florenzi, Ante Rebic, and Rade Krunic are injured.
Red Bull Salzburg vs. AC Milan Prediction
We believe that this game will be a tough one. RB Salzburg knows how to make life more difficult for much stronger teams. They played some fantastic ties against Bayern, Atletico, and Liverpool in recent years. The stake is big because both teams want to start the Champions League with three points and both teams see a great opportunity for that in this game.
