Dinamo Zagreb vs Chelsea Tips and Prediction

Even by Chelsea’s high standards, the summer transfer window was disorganized, which possibly contributed to the Blues’ lackluster performance in their first games.

Nevertheless, the Blues are now one point ahead of Liverpool and only four points behind a Manchester City team that is expected to win the entire season thanks to their contentious 2-1 victory over West Ham United on Saturday.

Thomas Tuchel will earn 10 points from six games despite his team’s poor defensive performance, but the German coach is aware that it is now up to his players to begin giving the kind of performances that are anticipated and required of them.

After five games, Chelsea has already let up nine goals—nine if VAR hadn’t made what felt like a major mistake in the West Ham match—and Tuchel must now choose whether to play a back three or a back four going forward.

Generally speaking, Chelsea’s offense has lacked a clinical touch, leaving Tuchel to hope that Kai Havertz’s first goal of the year signals the end of his inconsistent performances in the final third.

Since they had to beat out Shkupi, Ludogorets Razgrad, and Bodo/Glimt to make it to the group stages for the first time since 2019–20, Dinamo Zagreb are seen as the underdogs of the group.

However, this is a team that competed in the Europa League last season and advanced as far as the quarterfinals, defeating West Ham United and Sevilla. Ante Cacic and his team will welcome the potential to pull off the upset against Premier League rivals, as up to 22 points and 27 goals have already been scored in their first eight league games.

Even though Chelsea had not lost at Stadion Maksimir since December, their opponents’ inability to keep a clean sheet in their previous ten games will give them hope.

Since Chelsea has never played Croatian opposition in a competitive match, this will be the first time in the history of these two teams that they will come together.


We would be amazed if Chelsea managed to keep a clean sheet on Tuesday night given the threat that the home team poses coming forward. We foresee a very easy victory, but the visitors should have far too much quality in their assault.
