When the odds are 1.45 the expected chance of winning is 69%, but this team actually wins 71% matches with these odds.


Chelsea begin the 2022-23 Champions League campaign with a trip to Croatia to square off against Dinamo Zagreb.

While the Blues earned their place in this group stages through the Premier League, the home side came through three qualifying rounds to book their spot among European football’s elite.

Even by Chelsea’s standards, the summer transfer window was chaotic and probably had some influence on the Blues looking far from convincing during their opening fixtures.

Nevertheless, Saturday’s controversial 2-1 victory over West Ham United has left the Blues one point above Liverpool and just four points behind a Manchester City side which are supposed to conquer all this campaign.

Given the substandard level of their defending, Thomas Tuchel will take 10 points from six matches, but the German will know that now is the time for his players to start to deliver the level of performances which are expected and demanded of them.

Chelsea have now conceded nine goals – it would have been 10 had VAR not made what felt like a monumental error in the West Ham fixture – in five games, and Tuchel needs to decide whether he is going to operate with a back three or four over the coming weeks.

In attack, Chelsea have generally failed to show a clinical touch, with Tuchel left to hope that Kai Havertz‘s first goal of the season is the end of his ineffective showings in the final third.

Tuchel has revealed that Denis Zakaria and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both in contention for their debuts, but Thiago Silva has been handed a rest.

As well as having an extra day of recovery ahead of this game, Cacic also lined up with a side against Rijeka which featured several different players to the crucial win over Bodo/Glimt.

However, Cacic could revert back to the team which started against the Norwegian outfit, eventually defeating them by a 4-1 scoreline after extra time.

Mislav Orsic has again been the standout player this season, already chipping in with eight goals in Croatia’s top flight and the Champions League qualifying rounds.

Dinamo Zagreb possible starting lineup:
Livakovic; Ristovski, Sutalo, Peric, Ljubicic; Spikic, Ademi, Ivanusec, Orsic; Petkovic, Baturina

Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Arrizabalaga; Fofana, Chalobah, Koulibaly; James, Jorginho, Kovacic, Chilwell; Mount, Sterling; Havertz
