Chelsea have made serene progress under Graham Potter and the Blues can secured their place in the Champions League last-16 on Tuesday night if they secure maximum reward in Austria. RB Salzburg are currently second in Group E, just below Chelsea, so they will have their own aspirations of progression.
After Potter’s first European game in charge of Chelsea, which came against Salzburg in the reverse fixture at the Bridge, his side were propping up the Group E table. The Blues lost their opener 1-0 to Dinamo Zagreb under Thomas Tuchel, but Potter has got them firing on all cylinders in midweek and they are now leading the charge.
Matthias Jaissle’s Roten Bullen are still unbeaten in this season’s Champions League, winning one and drawing three times. But, they are winless in all seven of their European matches against English teams, failing to beat Blackburn Rovers, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea. It would take an unprecedented result here to throw a spanner in the Group E works.

RB Salzburg v Chelsea match stats
Mason Mount has been in fine form for Chelsea since Potter took over and he was the difference-maker last time out against Milan at the San Siro, after he raced through on goal and drew a penalty and saw former Chelsea and Derby team-mate Fikayo Tomori sent off. The England international is the only Chelsea player to reach double digits for chances created in the Champions League this season (10).
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang meanwhile has scored in his last two Champions League appearances for Chelsea (two goals). The last player to find the net in three consecutive appearances in the competition for the Blues was Willian back in December 2015. For Salzburg, only Erling Haaland (eight) has scored more Champions League goals for them than Noah Okafor (six). The Swiss striker has netted three times in the competition this term.

RB Salzburg v Chelsea head-to-head
14 Sep 2022 – Chelsea 1-1 RB Salzburg – Champions League
It was a battle of attrition in west London last month for the first-ever contest between these two clubs. Potter thought he secured a debut win on his Champions League bow through Raheem Sterling on the 48th minute, but that man Okafor restored parity 15 minutes from time.
