Chelsea vs Dinamo Zagreb
Date: Wednesday, 2 November 2022
Kick-off at 21:00 UK/ 22:00 CET
Venue: Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have already made sure of a ticket to the Round of 16. But after all this hard work, they would be adamant that they progress as group champions. And they have a golden opportunity to make it happen as well. They are at home this Wednesday, against the dead-last placed Zagreb.
The Blues started their campaign on a bad note, as they lost against this same opponent on the road. The two-time champions had to bow down to a win to nil against these minnows.
But it surely did straighten them out. Since then they remained unbeaten. In fact, they had a 100% winning record since then, barring a single draw.
It is noteworthy that they scored the most number of goals in the group, and they conceded the least as well. They are placed at the top of the table at present, with a three-point lead. And a win this Wednesday will confirm them as the group winners.
The two-time European champions are in form, and they are at home. Moreover, they are pitted against a team who failed to win a single game after their fluke victory on the first match-day.
In fact, Zagreb conceded the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition, and they also scored the least.
Moreover, they have a 100% losing record barring a single draw, after the first game week. They need a win at any cost to at least make them eligible for a spot in the Europa, and this pressure is not healthy when making a trip to the Stamford Bridge.
Surely count on Chelsea to make this game count, and post the three points on the board.
