Champions league football returns this week, as European heavyweights Chelsea and AC Milan take on each other in their Group E match-up. Chelsea will host the seven-time winners at Stamford Bridge, as the Blues are desperate to get back their European campaign back on track. They currently sit bottom of the table which comprises of Milan, Dinamo Zagreb and RB Salzburg.

The 20/21 winners are yet to win a game despite going against Zagreb, where they lost 1-0 and Salzburg ran away with a stalemate at the Bridge. A group where Chelsea were touted as the ‘easy favourites’ to come through as table toppers, they are struggling to even win a game. Graham Potter will be standing in charge of his second Champions League outing after the Salzburg draw at home.

Meanwhile, AC Milan sit atop of the group after picking a win and a draw from their wo games so far. The reigning Italian champions are playing some good football under Stefano Pioli and have lost just one of their ten games so far this season in all competitions. Pioli’s talismanic attackers Oliver Giround, Rafael Leao and Alexis Saelemaekers are all clicking brilliantly and will certainly pose a lot of problems for the Chelsea defense.

Moreover, Chelsea are no strangers to Giround’s ability of constantly creating troubles for the opponent’s backline. The striker spent a three-and-a-half year stint with the Blues, scoring 39 goals in 119 games and helping them to a Europa League, FA Cup and the Champions League over the course of time. He will be eager to get on the score-sheet against his former side in their own backyard.
