The Blues will be eager to record their first win under new coach Graham Potter when they face RB Salzburg on matchday two of the UEFA Champions League group stage. After a start to the season that fans would not have wished for, defeat to Southampton and a fortunate win over West Ham, which could have ended in a draw if not for VAR, and the 1-0 defeat to Dinamo Zagreb, the Chelsea board thought it wise to part ways with former PSG and Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel.

On the other hand, the visitors, having made a dream start to the season, are still unbeaten after seven games in all competitions and will be looking to extend that run. RB Salzburg's last game was a comfortable 3-0 win over Ried in the Austrian Bundesliga at the weekend, with Naoh Okafor getting on the scoresheet for the third time in a row.  

Chelsea vs Salzburg Betting Tips: BTTS

The Blues are expected to dominate possession as usual, which should limit Salzburg's ability to create scoring chances.

However, the Chelsea have already proven this season that they have a clear weakness when it comes to defending, having conceded at least once in each of their last six games.

Therefore, I think that RB Salzburg should be able to score one goal, even if it won't be enough to get an important victory in the Champions League.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang made his debut for Chelsea on matchday one and the former Arsenal man will be anxious to see what the new manager has in store for him.

Thiago Silva missed that game due to an injury and remains questionable for this game but Ngolo Kante is set to be out of action for a while due to the injury he sustained against Tottenham Hotspur earlier this season.

Salzburg Team News

RB Salzburg would be able to use the services of Junior Adamu despite his sending off in the 3-0 win over Ried in the Austria Bundesliga at the weekend.

However, the likes of Ousmane Diakité, Luka Sucic, Sekou Koita, Bryan Okoh, Kamil Piatkowski, Oumar Solet, Mamady Diambou, Maximilian Wöber, Justin Omoregie, and Samson Tijani who were all absent from that game due to injuries would miss out.

Noah Okafor has again been the standout man for the visitors this season with five goals including his goal on match day 1 and the 22 year would again be tasked with the role of leading the line.
