Chelsea travel to Italy tonight to face AC Milan in the Champions League. Graham Potter’s side will be hoping to repeat their performance from last Wednesday when they swept Milan 3-0 en route to qualifying for the knockout rounds at Stamford Bridge.
That win threw up Group E wide, with just two points separating leaders RB Salzburg with five points and Dinamo Zagreb at either end of the table. Both Chelsea and Milan have four points each, meaning whoever wins tonight will be higher placed going into the final two games of the group stage.
Both sides go into the game in decent form after winning at the weekend – Chelsea easily defeated Wolves 3-0 on Saturday, while Milan defeated Juventus 2-0. Still, it will be a high-pressure encounter and a defeat in Italy could make qualifying for the knockout stages difficult for the Blues as Stefano Pioli’s side are determined to put in a better performance in front of their home fans. Potter’s men are four games unbeaten and hope to continue their winning streak tonight.
