Chelsea will face off against Red Bull Salzburg at the Red Bull Arena on Tuesday evening as both teams try to grab all three points away from home. The Austrian outfit also had to settle for a scoreless draw against SK Sturm Graz recently. Similarly, the Blues were held to a 1-1 draw by Manchester United last weekend. Hence, both sides would be eager to get back to winning ways in this midweek European clash in Austria.
Red Bull Salzburg vs Chelsea: Talking Tactics
Matthias Jaissle will set his team up in a 4-1-2-1-2 formation and might instruct his men to sit deep and soak in all the pressure before trying to expose Chelsea’s defensive weaknesses on the counter.
Graham Potter will opt for a 3-4-2-1 formation and will ask his players to dominate the ball and create enough decent chances to win this contest at the Red Bull Arena.
Red Bull Salzburg
Justin Omoregie (hamstring), Fernando (thigh), Ousmane Diakite (ACL), Nicolas Capaldo (knee), Sekou Koita (thigh) and Dijon Kameri (shoulder) will all miss this clash due to injuries.
Luka Sucic is also a major doubt for this game this Tuesday evening and will be in a race against time to be fit for this clash.
Red Bull Salzburg Predicted XI
Kohn; Dedic, Solet, Pavlovic, Ulmer; Kjaergaard, Gourna-Douath, Seiwald; Sucic; Okafor, Sesko
Wesley Fofana, Reece James and N’Golo Kante will all be sidelined for this game because of injuries. Both Mateo Kovacic and Kalidou Koulibaly are unlikely to recover in time for this game.
Chelsea Predicted XI
Kepa; Azpilicueta, Chalobah, Silva, Chilwell; Gallagher, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek; Mount, Havertz, Sterling
Red Bull Salzburg
Both Oumar Solet and Strahinja Pavlović will need to be at the top of their game if the home team are to have any chance of securing a clean sheet in midweek.
Noah Okafor has to carry most of the goal-scoring workload for the Austrian giants on the attacking end of the field.
Kai Havertz and Mason Mount need to have a productive game in the final third if Potter’s side want to grab maximum points away from home.
Both Jorginho and Conor Gallagher have to find a way to dominate possession at the centre of the park so that they can offer an ideal platform for Chelsea to go on and snatch the win.
