Red Bull Salzburg are currently top of the Austrian Bundesliga, two points ahead of second-placed Sturm Graz. They are second in their Champions League group, one point behind group leaders Chelsea and two points ahead of third-placed AC Milan. The Austrian side have exceeded expectations in Europe so far, but Group E is too close for comfort, even for Chelsea, as fourth-placed Dinamo Zagreb are on the same points as AC Milan.
Chelsea, on the other hand, have endured a tumultuous start to their season. The Blues were heavy messi barcelona jersey 30 spenders during the summer, signing Marc Cucurella, Wesley Fofana, Raheem Sterling and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. However, they fired Thomas Tuchel after a string of poor performances, and hired Graham Potter to replace him.
They are currently fourth in the league, only one point ahead of fifth-placed Manchester United. Manager Graham Potter has endured a frustratingly inconsistent start to his tenure. Potter has proved his mettle at Brighton & Hove Albion, but will need more time to implement his philosophy at Chelsea.
However, failure to qualify from their Champions League group will not be construed well by Chelsea's new owners.
Chelsea have what it takes to win here, and will be the favorites to do so.
