AC Milan and Chelsea are the top two teams in Group E, with RB Salzburg and Dinamo Zagreb rounding out the group. Chelsea suffered some significant setbacks last season with Roman Abramovich’s ties to Russia, resulting in a string of poor results down the stretch. Thomas Tuchel’s club will want to change that this year. AC Milan are hoping to build on last year’s Serie A title. Here’s how Group E stacks up.
