Chelsea also disappoints with the debut of trainer Potter – Chelsea did not grace the debut of coach Graham Potter with a victory on Wednesday. The successor of the dismissed Thomas Tuchel was stuck in a disappointing 1-1 draw in the Champions League match against Red Bull Salzburg. Real Madrid only took away from RB Leipzig in the last ten minutes.
Chelsea was by far the better match in the game with Red Bull Salzburg before half-time, but only after the interruption did the home team express the dominance in the score. Raheem Sterling curled the ball after a good attack into the far corner, marking his 25th goal in the Champions League.

In the end things went wrong for Potter, who was appointed as the new coach on Thursday after Tuchel had to leave after the 1-0 defeat against Dinamo Zagreb. After a defensive blunder, Noah Okafor pushed in the 1-1. Even after the introduction of former Ajax player Hakim Ziyech ten minutes before the end, that did not change.
Earlier in the evening, Dinamo Zagreb was unable to continue the stunt against Chelsea. The Croatian champions lost 3-1 to AC Milan. On the stroke of half-time, Milan took the lead in San Siro through a converted penalty from Olivier Giroud.
Just after the interruption, Alexis Saelemaekers made it 2-0 with a header. Dinamo Zagreb then had to hope for a sensational point after Mislav Orsic’s connecting goal, but Tommaso Pobega destroyed all Croatian hopes with the 3-1.
AC Milan is the only team in group E to be unbeaten after the first two matches. The reigning champion of Italy was stuck last week in a 1-1 draw against Red Bull Salzburg.
In that game, Sergiño Dest made his debut. The former Ajax player, who is rented from FC Barcelona, came on ten minutes before time against Dinamo Zagreb.

No new surprise for Shakhtar
In Group F, Real Madrid took a big step towards wintering in the Champions League by beating RB Leipzig 2-0. The two goals of the defending champion in the million-dollar ball only fell in the final phase of the match in Estadio Santiago Bernabéu.
Ten minutes before the end, Federico Valverde gave the home team the lead with a curling shot. In stoppage time, Marco Asensio secured the victory for Real Madrid. Last week the Madrid team won 0-3 against Celtic.
Earlier in the evening, Shakhtar Donetsk was unable to continue his beautiful victory over RB Leipzig. A week after the 4-1 victory over the German top club, the club from Ukraine was stuck at a 1-1 draw.
The duel in Warsaw started early when Shakhtar’s player scored an own goal after ten minutes of play. After half an hour it was already equal: attacker Mykhailo Mudryk brought the home team alongside. That was it. In the final phase Shakhtar barely got the ball off the line.
On October 5, there will be two crucial matches in the battle for wintering in the Champions League. Then Real Madrid will play a home game against Shakhtar Donetsk and Celtic and RB Leipzig will probably battle for their last chance for a place in the first knockout round of the million-dollar ball.
