The game is one of the first of the group stage, kicking off early, and the Blues will want to put aside their uneven start to the Premier League season against potential whipping boys in Group E. AC Milan and RB Salzburg make up the group.
Chelsea have conceded nine goals in six league games which will give their Croatian opponents hope, but with the transfer window now closed, Thomas Tuchel will be hoping this side will become more stable, starting with Zagreb.

Dinamo Zagreb vs Chelsea Team News
Ben Chilwell got in the frame to start after a winning appearance against West Ham, in which he scored one goal and assisted another in a 2-1 win.
Kai Havertz scored the winner and is expected to return to the starting lineup, along with Mason Mount. Mateo Kovacic will want to face one of his former clubs.

Dinamo Zagreb vs Chelsea Prediction
This should be relatively comfortable for Chelsea, despite their recent struggles in the Premier League, given the quality gap between the two teams.
Dinamo are the minnows of the group and anything below the maximum points for the Blues, over the two games, will be considered a failure.
Chelsea won 3-0.
