In Group E, Chelsea and Salzburg are in first and second place, respectively. Chelsea temporarily tops the table with 7 points with 2 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss, while Salzburg is behind with 1 point less when there is 1 win and 3 draws. Both teams can actually qualify here in the penultimate game.

However, Chelsea is the team that experts appreciate more due to their positive results and consistent performance. They won 3/5 matches in the Champions League and did not fail in the last 8 matches, while Salzburg won only 1 of the last 5 matches in the Champions League.

The difficulty for Potter’s team is that they will have to play in Austria and may not have the best fitness because they just had a great battle with MU in the Premier League last weekend.
