Red Bull Salzburg will play in its own Red Bull Arena in round five of the group stage of the Champions League against Chelsea. Red Bull Salzburg has been unbeaten in all competitions for the last 17 games in a row. The team is at the top with 30 points from eleven matches in the Austrian Bundesliga and also in the Champions League, where it is still in the race to qualify for the knockout phase. The team of trainer Matthias Jaissle is in second place after four match days in Group E and is the only team in the group still unbeaten. The team has won two and lost two of its four Champions League matches. Red Bull Salzburg drew 1-1 against Sturm Graz in the Austrian league this weekend, which kept them at the top.
Chelsea are currently top of Group E with seven points from four games. So if Graham Potter’s team beats Red Bull Salzburg, it is certain of a group win and a place in the knockout phase. The Londoners have also been doing well in the Premier League in recent weeks. Chelsea had a hesitant start to the season and even sacked Champions League-winning coach Thomas Tuchel because of the disappointing results. The ‘Blues’ are now eight games unbeaten and have moved up to fourth place in the English Premier League. However, the last two games did not end in a win after a draw against Brentford (0-0) and Manchester United (1-1).
Red Bull Salzburg WLWLDW
The last match for Red Bull Salzburg, which was played in the Bundesliga, ended in a scoreless draw against Sturm Graz.
During that match, Red Bull Salzburg had 62% of the possession and 13 shots on goal, with only two of them finding the back of the net. Sturm Graz, the team they were playing against, had 8 shots on goal, but only 3 of them were on target.
Red Bull Salzburg, led by Matthias Jaissle, have found the back of the net 14 times over the course of their previous six matches. When compared to the number of goals they have scored in the same amount of time, their total number of goals conceded is 5..
The most recent match that Chelsea played in was a Premier League match against Manchester United, which ended in a 1-1 draw.
During that match, Chelsea held 47% of the possession and had 6 shots on goal, with just 2 of those shots finding their mark. There were 13 shots on goal by Manchester United, with 6 of them being on target.
In recent games featuring Chelsea, there has been a discernible pattern developing in which at least one opponent fails to find the back of the net. A quick review of their activities over the past six weeks indicates that it has happened five times throughout that period. During those contests, Chelsea’s opponents have scored a total of one goal, while the Blues have scored eleven goals.

Red Bull Salzburg vs Chelsea Predicted XI
Red Bull Salzburg Predicted XI: Koehn, Dedic, Solet, Pavlovic, Woeber, Seiwald, Gourna-Douath, Kjaergaard, Sucic, Okafor, Sesko.
Chelsea Predicted XI: Kepa, Chalobah, Silva, Cucurella, Azpilicueta, Chilwell, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Mount, Sterling, Aubameyang.
We are of the opinion that it will be difficult for Red Bull Salzburg to score against this Chelsea team, as we anticipate that Chelsea will be able to win while also contributing to the scoresheet with a goal or two of their own.
So, we think the game will go back and forth a lot, with Chelsea winning 1-0 after 90 minutes.
There is a competition to honor and two more games to play for Juventus in the Champions League, hoping for a miracle and, failing that, with the goal of at least hitting the passage to the Europa League from third place in Group H, although Juventus’ chances of qualifying for the round of 16 in the Champions League have been reduced. After defeating Empoli by a score of 4-0 in the league match, Massimiliano Allegri’s bianconeri will go to Lisbon to take on Benfica with this kind of mentality.
The problem is that in the other half of the field there will be a Benfica team that has never lost a game this season and that, on the contrary, in the last round of the championship has consolidated its leadership and is going to win 0-1 over Porto, its direct competitor for the title. This presents a significant challenge for the team that is currently in first place. And let us not forget that the Lusitanian side has previously prevailed in Turin by a score of 1-2.
Fans of Benfica will be hoping for the same result as the last time they played Porto, which was a 1-0 win in the Primeira Liga.
Benfica had 70% of the possession and 13 shots on goal, four of which were successful. At the opposite end of the field, Porto had 11 shots on goal, four of which were on target.
According to their most recent performances, the Benfica backline does not have a lot of room for improvement. As evidenced by the fact that just four of their opponents’ goals have been scored against them in the last six matches that they have participated in, Benfica have conceded few goals to their rivals.
In their most recent game, Juventus defeated Empoli by a score of 4-0 to earn three points toward their Serie A standing.
During that match, Juventus held 43% of the possession and had 21 shots on goal, with 7 of them finding their mark. On the other hand, Empoli had 12 shots on goal, but they only managed to hit the target four times.
In recent times, it has been rather common for at least one opponent to go scoreless when playing against Juventus, and this tendency has grown fairly persistent. A review of their performance over the past six games reveals that the issue has arisen five times. In these matches, Juventus’ opponents have scored a combined total of five goals, while Juventus has scored eleven goals.

Juventus: (Paul Pogba, Federico Chiesa, Ángel Di María, Bremer, Mattia De Sciglio, Leandro Paredes)
Benfica vs Juventus Predicted XI
Benfica Predicted XI: Vlachodimos, Bah, Silva, Otamendi, Grimaldo, Fernandez, Luis, Aursnes, Silva, Mario, Ramos.
Juventus Predicted XI: Szczesny, Danilo, Bonucci, Rugani, Cuadrado, Kostic, McKennie, Locatelli, Rabiot, Milik, Vlahovic.
Dinamo Zagreb will play in round five of the group stage of the Champions League against seven-time Champions League winner AC Milan. Dinamo Zagreb played three preliminary rounds to reach the group stage of the Champions League. The Croatian champions started well in Group E and provided a resounding surprise by beating Chelsea 1-0 in the first game at home. In the three games that followed that great victory, however, only one point was achieved, leaving the team stuck at four. After losses against AC Milan (3-1) and Red Bull Salzburg (1-0), they played a 1-1 draw against the Austrians on match day four. This weekend the team played a draw against Hajduk Split (1-1) in the top league in Croatia.
AC Milan won the Scudetto in Italy for the first time in eleven years last season and thus qualified directly for the group stage of the Champions League. So far, however, things have not gone as planned. After four matchdays, the team is still on four points, just like their opponent, Dinamo Zagreb, and must do all they can if they are to qualify for the knockout phase. It’s all pretty close together in Group E, so that’s definitely still possible. Stefano Pioli’s team would do well to win this game in Croatia. Milan are currently second in Serie A, having won three of their last four matches played.
Dinamo Zagreb WWLDWD
Dinamo Zagreb come into this match having just come off a 1-1 draw against Hajduk Split in the previous round of the Prva Liga.
During that match, Dinamo Zagreb had 59% control of the ball and 7 shots on goal, with 4 of those shots hitting the target. Hajduk Split had a total of ten shots on goal, just two of which were successful.
Dinamo Zagreb have not been the greatest in recent games at preventing goals from being scored by their opponents, but they have done enough to capitalize on the scoring opportunities they have created for themselves. Dinamo Zagreb have not only scored goals in five of their last six games but have also been penalized defensively in six of those games. Dinamo Zagreb have scored goals in five of their last six games.
AC Milan WLWLWW
After beating Monza 4-1 in their last Serie A game, AC Milan will come into this game with a lot of momentum.
During that match, AC Milan had 49% possession of the ball and 12 shots on goal, with 7 of those shots finding the target. Monza, the team they were playing against, had 16 shots on goal, with 6 of them hitting the target.
The numbers don’t lie, and they show that AC Milan’s opponents have scored in 5 of the previous 6 games they’ve played against them, for a total of 8 goals scored against them. When it comes to defense, AC Milan has been far from perfect.

Dinamo Zagreb vs AC Milan Predicted XI
Dinamo Zagreb Predicted XI: Livakovic, Ristovski, Peric, Sutalo, Misic, Ljubicic, Ademi, Spikic, Ivanusec, Orsic, Petkovic.
AC Milan Predicted XI: Tatarusanu, Kalulu, Gabbia, Kjaer, Hernandez, Tonali, Bennacer, Messias, Diaz, Leao, Giroud.
Dinamo Zagreb will certainly be able to score a goal against this AC Milan team, but we do not anticipate that this will be enough to prevent a loss.
Our prediction is for this match to be a tight one, with AC Milan emerging victorious by a score of 1-3 after 90 minutes.
Manchester City must win two of their three matches against Borussia Dortmund in order to maintain their lead in Group G. In England, Manchester City already won their match against Borussia Dortmund by a score of 2–1, so they are confident that they will be able to do so again in Germany. In point of fact, it would be established that Pep Guardiola’s squad will finish the group in command with either a draw or a victory. In the last round of the tournament, Edin Terzic’s Borussia Dortmund beat Stuttgart 5-0 at their own stadium, and Manchester City beat Roberto De Zerbi’s Brighton & Hove Albion 3-1 at their own field.
Borussia Dortmund WDDLWW
The last time Borussia Dortmund played, they won 5-0 against Stuttgart in the Bundesliga 1 competition. They will try to play as well as they did in that game.
During that game, Borussia Dortmund had 60% of the control of the ball and 18 shots on goal, with 10 of those shots finding the target. There were ten attempts on goal from Stuttgart, but only one was on target.
Recent matches involving Borussia Dortmund have consistently proven to be interesting events, and fans can anticipate a high number of goals to be scored. During the course of their most recent six head-to-head contests against one another, a total of 20 goals have been scored by both teams (which works out to an average of 3.33 goals per game), with Borussia Dortmund being responsible for 14 of those goals.
Manchester City WWWDLW
After defeating Brighton & Hove Albion by a score of 3-1 in their most recent Premier League match, Manchester City will come into this match riding high on the momentum of their recent victory.
During that match, Manchester City held 48% of the possession and had 10 shots on goal, with 4 of those shots finding the back of the net. On the other hand, Brighton & Hove Albion had 8 shots on goal, but they only managed to get 2 of them on target.
Manchester City have a history of playing high-scoring matches, as seen by the fact that their most recent six outings have resulted in an average of 3.83 goals scored and 23 total goals scored between them. This demonstrates their preference for encounters that are full of excitement and activity. Five of this grand total’s goals have been scored by opposing teams.

Borussia Dortmund vs Manchester City Predicted XI
Borussia Dortmund Predicted XI: Kobel, Sule, Hummels, Schlotterbeck, Guerreiro, Can, Bellingham, Brandt, Reus, Reyna, Moukoko.
Manchester City Predicted XI: Ederson, Stones, Akanji, Ake, Cancelo, De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan, Foden, Haaland, Grealish.
We believe that Dortmund have it in them to score a goal against this Manchester City lineup; however, we also believe that scoring just one goal is not likely to be enough for them to earn the result that they are looking for.
As a result, we anticipate that it will be a close game, with a 1-1 draw at the end of the match.
RB Leipzig and Real Madrid will face each other in a match on matchday five of the group stage of the Champions League. The German team is in second place, with six points, just one more than the Ukrainians of Shakhtar Donetsk, and the two teams will measure forces in the final round. After having started with defeats against Shakhtar (1-4) and Real (2-0), the Germans beat Celtic twice, 3-1 and 0-2 (both placing themselves in the vice-leadership of this group F).
Real Madrid, on the other hand, leads the group in isolation, with ten points, having already qualified for the next round of the competition. The Merengues, who in the previous round drew with Shakhtar (1–1), need just one point in this match at the Red Bull Arena to guarantee first place. Real, who defeated Sevilla 3-1 in La Liga on Saturday, defeated the Germans 2-0 at the Santiago Bernabéu.
RB Leipzig WDWWWD
After playing Augsburg to a 3-3 draw in the previous round of the Bundesliga, RB Leipzig will participate in this match.
RB Leipzig had 68% of the possession in that game, and they had 18 shots on goal, with 7 of them finding the target. The opposing team, Augsburg, had 9 shots on goal, with just 3 of them hitting the target.
Recent matches that have included RB Leipzig have frequently been entertaining affairs, with a high number of goals scored being the norm. There have been a combined 23 goals scored by both teams in their most recent six matches against one another (which works out to an average of 3.83 goals per game), with RB Leipzig being responsible for 16 of those goals scored.
Real Madrid WWDWWW
Real Madrid’s most recent La Liga victory came against Sevilla, when they prevailed by a score of 3-1.
Real Madrid had 56% of the possession in that game, and they had 18 shots on goal, with 6 of them finding the target. On the opposite end of the field, Sevilla had 9 shots on goal, but they only managed to get 2 of them on target.
The Real Madrid defenders have turned in a string of consistent performances, which has led to a reduction in the number of goals that their team has let up over the course of their last six matches combined to just four. In the same span of time, their strikers have accounted for 13 of their team’s goals.
Injured and suspended
RB Leipzig: (Lukas Klostermann, Péter Gulácsi, Konrad Laimer).

RB Leipzig vs Real Madrid Predicted XI
RB Leipzig Predicted XI: Blaswich, Simakan, Diallo, Orban, Raum, Schlager, Kampl, Nkunku, Szoboszlai, Werner, Silva.
Real Madrid Predicted XI: Courtois, Vazquez, Nacho, Rudiger, Mendy, Camavinga, Tchouameni, Kroos, Asensio, Rodrygo, Vinicius.
RB Leipzig could have a tough time getting anything against this Real Madrid team, who we believe should have the advantage in this match.
Because of this, our forecast calls for a competitive match that will end with Real Madrid prevailing by a score of 1-3 when the final whistle blows.
Paris Saint-Germain and Maccabi Haifa meet at the Parc des Princes in a game counting towards the fifth round of the group stage of the Champions League. The Gauls are a short step away from qualifying for the round of 16 of the competition, needing just one point to secure that objective in case Juventus doesn’t beat Benfica in Luz. In any case, the win guarantees that the team.
PSG and Benfica are tied for first place in Group H with eight points each. The Cidade-Luz team, which has a strong desire to compete in the Champions League, is coming off two one-goal draws with the Reds. After those two draws, the Parisians recorded two triumphs in Ligue 1, against Marseille (1-0) and Ajaccio (0-3), maintaining the isolated leadership of the competition. Maccabi Haifa surprised in the previous round, beating Juventus 2-0, and is coming off two wins in the Israeli championship.
Paris Saint-Germain WDDDWW
After claiming a victory against AC Ajaccio by a score of 0-3 in Ligue 1, PSG will be trying to add another victory to their record.
During that game, Paris Saint-Germain had 65 percent of ball possession and 11 shots on goal, with six of those shots finding the back of the net. AC Ajaccio had eight shots on goal, but only one was successful in hitting the target.
The fact that the backguard for Paris Saint-Germain has been putting in a tremendous amount of work is demonstrated by their most recent results. The number of goals that have been scored against Paris Saint-Germain in their last six matches is three. This is due to the fact that the club’s defenders have been extremely tenacious, which has resulted in just three goals being scored against them.
Maccabi Haifa WLLWWW
Maccabi Haifa enters this match on the back of a victory in their most recent Ligat HaAl match, which they played against Ironi Kiryat Shmona and won 2-3.
Maccabi Haifa, led by Barak Bakhar, had a total of nine shots on goal during their most recent slate of matches, and they were successful on three of those attempts. During seven encounters, they have been responsible for a total of six goals that have been scored against them.

Maccabi Haifa: (Suf Podgoreanu, Dolev Haziza, Mahmoud Jaber, Daniel Sundgren).
PSG vs Maccabi Haifa Predicted XI
Paris Saint-Germain Predicted XI: Donnarumma, Hakimi, Ramos, Marquinhos, Bernat, Vitinha, Fabian, Renato Sanches, Messi, Mbappe, Neymar.
Maccabi Haifa Predicted XI: Cohen, Seck, Batubinsika, Goldberg, Cornud, David, Lavi, Mohamed, Chery, Atzili, Pierrot.
It looks like Maccabi Haifa will have a hard time breaking through the competition.
As a result, we believe that Paris Saint-Germain will emerge victorious in this match with a score of 3-0 once it is all said and done.
