Red Bull Salzburg is currently more than sovereign. After the 1-1 draw against AC Milan on the first day of the Champions League, there was a comfortable 3-0 win at SV Ried. The course of the game played into the cards of the Jaissle-Elf. After just 15 minutes, the series champion was 2-0 up, acted confidently for the most part and was able to shift down a gear in the second half.
“We were dominant for 90 minutes and were certainly able to save grains,” emphasized coach Matthias Jaissle after the final whistle on the TV channel “Sky”. The only downer was Junior Adamu’s red card after an assault.
The Salzburg coach made four changes to the starting line-up. Nicolas Seiwald, Noah Okafor and Fernando were rested for Wednesday and only came on during the game. Other key players such as Nicolas Capaldo, Maurits Kjaergaard and Benjamin Sesko were substituted after the break. So even during the game, at least for coach Jaissle, the focus was a little on the second highlight in the Champions League in a short time.
Things are going like clockwork at FC Salzburg at the moment. After beating Italian champions AC Milan 1-1 last Tuesday, the Bulls travel to London with a lot of confidence. Matthias Jaissle is aware that the “Blues” are a real top team. It’s a Herculean task. They are absolutely world class in every position”, Jaissle looked ahead to the duel on the island. “We need luck in the game and Chelsea don’t need the best day then we can go home with a point.”
At Chelsea, Graham Potter will take his place in the Blues’ dugout for the first time. He is the successor of Thomas Tuchel. However, according to Jaissle, the change in management at Chelsea will not make the task any easier. In addition, the cancellation of the entire Premier League round due to the death of the Queen makes it difficult to analyze the upcoming opponent. “But Chelsea will not be a lucky bag,” said the Salzburg coach.
