Serie A’s AC Milan kick off their 2022-23 Champions League campaign with an encounter against Red Bull Salzburg in Austria. Each team booked their place in this competition through winning the Italian and Austrian titles last season, and both teams have started equally positively this time around. Though some will claim AC Milan have been far from their best during the opening weeks of their Serie A title defense after scoring draws against Atalanta BC and Sassuolo.
However, Stefano Pioli’s team have outperformed many of their rivals while extending their unbeaten league record to 21 matches, their most recent setback coming all the way back in January. Rossoneri also head into this fixture having come through a five-goal thriller with neighbors Inter Milan, battling back from an early deficit to post a 3-2 win. Rafael Leao, after late speculation regarding his future, netted a double to take him to five goal contributions this season, while Olivier Giroud also chipped in with yet another important strike.
But at the same time, Pioli will also understand the challenge which awaits his side with Red Bull Salzburg motivated to move their domestic dominance into continental competition. The Austrian giants made the breakthrough in the Champions League last season, reaching the last 16 to post a 1-1 draw with Bayern Munich in the first round of their knockout tie before being blown away at the Allianz Arena. While Jaissle and his squad deserved huge praise for progressing through a group which featured Lille, Sevilla and Wolfsburg, expectation levels are now much higher.
On one hand, Salzburg head into this encounter on a five-match winning streak in the Bundesliga, keeping clean sheets in their most recent three fixtures. And on the other hand, even though Milan have been outstanding on the domestic front over the past 13 months, Pioli is aware that he must deliver on the European stage after their disappointing group-stage exit in 2021-22.
