Chelsea vs AC Milan preview & prediction

Match preview

Chelsea fans will hope that the third time’s the charm as they welcome AC Milan to Stamford Bridge for Wednesday’s Group E showdown.

Chelsea have earned just one point from their opening two Champions League games. Their poor performance was highlighted by a 1-0 loss to Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia under Thomas Tuchel and a 1-1 draw to Red Bull Salzburg on the debut of Graham Potter.

Chelsea are two-time Champions League holders and have never gone winless in their first three games in the competition. Their last worst start was their first year in the competition when they drew 0-0 with AC Milan and lost to Hertha Berlin. 

However, Chelsea ended their run with a win over Galatasaray before finally losing to their rivals Tottenham at home. With confidence from their most recent 2-1 win away at Crystal Palace ground on Saturday night Chelsea goes into this fixture more confident.

While Chelsea’s start to the season has been disastrous, AC Milan have been consistently performing well in all competitions. The Italian champions have lost only one of their 10 games which was a 2-1 defeat to Napoli who are ranked #1 in the Italian Serie A. While AC Milan are fourth in the table with just three points off the top.

In the Champions League this season, Milan recorded a 1-1 draw against Red Bull Salzburg before defeating Dinamo Zagreb 3-1 in the second round.
