Chelsea qualified for the Champions League final of the 2022/2023 season, beating Austria’s Red Bull Salzburg in the fifth round of Group E in yesterday’s group stage.
Croatia’s Mateo Kovacic opened the scoring for Chelsea in the 23rd minute with a fine shot from the border of the Salzburg penalty area.
Adamu was able to adjust the score for Salzburg in the 49th minute with a shot from the follow-up to the cross sent from the left side by his teammate Wubert.
German Kai Havertz was able to score Chelsea’s second goal in the 64th minute, with an impressive left-footed shot from the boundary of the box, following up on his teammate Pulisic’s pass, to guide his team’s winning points and crossing card for the next round.
With that result, Chelsea’s tenth point balance rose at the top of the Group E standings, while Salzburg’s balance froze at 6 points in second place.
