Lille – Wednesday, 10/20/2021, 10:59 p.m.
The rise of FC Salzburg in the knockout phase of the Champions League is taking on more and more concrete forms. After the Bulls defeated Wolfsburg 3-1 in the early evening (match report >>>), the group opponents Lille and Sevilla also play in a direct duel for the Austrian series champions.
The parallel game in France ends goalless 0-0. Sevilla are the slightly better team and give the best chances through Mir (20th) and Ocampos (39th). Both possibilities are preceded by major mistakes by Lille goalkeeper Grbic. For their part, the French are threatened by Sanches, who fails from close range to Bounou (27th).
In the table of Group G, Salzburg Nonne is comfortably ahead with seven points, Seville follows in second place after three draws. Lille and Wolfsburg have two points each as third and fourth respectively.
Chelsea win against Malmo
Much more spectacular is the 4-0 win by defending champions Chelsea against Malmö in Group H to the point.
Christensen sets the course for victory early on (9th), Jorginho with a penalty double (21st, 57th) and Havertz (48th) get the other hits.
In the parallel game, Juventus Turin struggled to a 1-0 at Zenit St. Petersburg. Kulusevski heads in late after a cross from De Sciglio (87.).
In the table, the Italians are ahead with a maximum of nine points, Chelsea follows in second place (6th). Zenit (3) can still hope, for Malmö (0) it’s probably only about third place and getting into the knockout phase in the Europa League.
