For his first match as Chelsea coach, Graham Potter welcomes RB Salzburg to Stamford Bridge, a match counting for the second day of the Champions League (Follow the match live on our live commentary). The Londoners must first of all reassure themselves after the defeat against Dynamo Zagreb on the first day and in the face of the complicated situation that the club is going through after the departure of Thomas Tuchel. The Blues have alternated between hard-won successes and defeats since the start of the season and Salzburg are not necessarily the best team to start their coaching term. Meeting already essential. And for his first match at the head of the Blues, Potter changes his system. It’s a 4-3-3 with Thiago Silva and Azpilicueta in central defense. Kovacic holds in the middle just like Aubameyang at the forefront of the attack.
Opposite is a Salzburg team in great shape in its championship which moves to London. Only one defeat at the start of the season for Matthias Jaissle’s men and a good match against AC Milan (1-1). Despite the loss of a few strong men in the off-season, notably Mohamed Camara who left for Monaco, the idea of the game has not changed and the system remains the same for this team, which is certainly not making the trip for nothing. The 4-4-2 diamond is still there with Okafor and Fernando for the attacking duo, Sucic as playmaker. Captain Ulmer is present on the left of the defense.
