AC Milan v RB Salzburg on Matchday 6 of the 2022/23 Champions League campaign will have a huge impact on the competition, as the outcome at the San Siro on Wednesday night in Group E will decide who progresses to the knockout stages.
However, after defeating Dinamo Zagreb in Croatia last Tuesday, the Rossoneri go into the match with a one-point advantage over the Austrian champions, as well as home advantage. Therefore, Stefano Pioli’s men only need to avoid defeat to reach the last 16.
