Chelsea v AC Milan live stream and match preview
Looking for a Chelsea v AC Milan live stream? We have what you need.
Chelsea need a result against group leaders AC Milan to get their Champions League campaign back on track on Wednesday.
The matchday one loss to Dinamo Zagreb gave the Blues a disastrous start and cost coach Thomas Tuchel his job.
Graham Potter was then installed, but could only glean a point on his debut against Salzburg in a 1-1 draw.
That left Chelsea bottom of Group E after two rounds, but victory here would be enough to send them level on four points with the Italian champions.
Potter’s first Premier League game in charge ended in a 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace on Saturday, courtesy of a late Conor Gallagher winner.
Milan travel to London after a 3-1 win at Empoli.
The Rossoneri lost to Napoli before the international break, but their latest victory moved them into fourth place after eight games, three points clear of the summit.
Stefano Pioli’s side got off to a strong start to their European campaign, drawing 1-1 at Salzburg before beating Dinamo Zagreb 3-1 at San Siro.
Winger Alexis Saelemaekers has been the hero so far, scoring in both of their games, but in-form striker Olivier Giroud will be one to watch against his former club.
Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy missed the match against Palace but is training again after a knee injury, while N’Golo Kante is also closing in on a return after a hamstring injury.
Milan have a litany of injury problems to deal with; Simon Kjaer, Davide Calabria and Saelemaekers limped off Empoli to join a list of discarded players that already includes Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Junior Messias, Mike Maignan, Theo Hernandez and Alessandro Florenzi.
AC Milan: WLWWD
Danny Makkelie from the Netherlands will be the referee for Chelsea v AC Milan.
Chelsea v AC Milan will be played at Stamford Bridge.
Salzburg v Dinamo Zagreb kick off at 5:45 p.m. in the other Group E game.
Kick off and chain
Kick-off is at 20:00 BST on Wednesday, October 5 and it is shown on BTSport 2 (opens in a new tab) in Great Britain. See below for international streaming options.
If you’re out of the country for a round of Champions League matches, unfortunately your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are thanks to your IP address (boo!). You won’t be able to watch it, which isn’t ideal if you’ve paid for a subscription and still want to follow the action without resorting to the illegal streams you’ve found on Reddit.
But help is at hand. To work around this, all you have to do is get a virtual private network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, which means the service can’t determine where you are and won’t automatically block the service you paid for. All information in between is fully encrypted – and that’s a result.
