Chelsea, AC Milan, in hopes for the knockout stages

Chelsea, AC Milan, in hopes for the knockout stages

Chelsea and AC Milan will lock horns as Chelsea welcomes Milan at home on October 6, 2022 at 3:00 AM (GMT+8). The match between these two squads is a clash between two European giants. These two already met five times and both won one game apiece, so these two are even against each other. However, as far as the Champions League is concerned, these two’s last meeting was last 1999-2000 season. In other words, for almost 23 years, this will be these two’s first time time to meet again. Although both are tied against each other, since it was ages ago when they last met, results are very hard to predict.

Chelsea lost only two of their last European matches at home. With that, they might be a little edge going into this match, where their last defeat is last 2010. They are currently at the fifth place in the Premier League, but failed when it comes to consistency. Meanwhile, for the Milan, as far as their away record is concerned, they won only once in their last 20 away games. However, on their last win against Chelsea, they recorded a 2-1 victory. Currently, this club is the fourth place of Serie A, and is yet to hit a stride this season.

Graham Potter finally managed Chelsea after failing to get a good result with their former manager. With Potter taking charge of Chelsea, they took home a 2-1 victory on his first Premier League match. As they come back in the Champions League, they are hoping to finally end their winless run in Europe. On their last match, they had a draw and a defeat against their opponents. So ending this drought is Potter’s number one goal on their return in the Champions League. Their opponent should beware though as this club last experienced defeat at home in 2010. Since then, they are already undefeated at home.

N’Golo Kante will not be available for Chelsea because of his injury, while Marc Cucurella and Carney Chukwuemeka still needs assessment because of their illness. Fortunately, Edouard Mendy is expected to return after a knee problem.

Looks like this squad is experiencing a crisis because of injuries, after their Serie A match against Empoli in the weekend. Despite injuries hurting this squad, they still managed to defeat Empoli in a 3-1 victory when they met in the Serie A. Nonetheless, despite all their unfortunes, this squad have been impressive under Stefano Pioli. Although Chelsea has a good home record, Milan also have a good away record. This club currently have gone to eight away matches without defeat.

Milan will go without the services of Theo Hernandez, Mike Maignan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Divock Origi, Junior Messias, and Alessandro Florenzi. These six players are all in their injury list, making it extra challenging for Milan to win this match. Simon Kjaer, Alexis Saelemaekers, and Davide Calabria are also doubtful for this match.
