Dinamo Zagreb vs Chelsea FC LIVE! Champions League match broadcast, latest scores and goals updates today

The Blues are back in Champions League action tonight as they look to avoid taking their lopsided Premier League form into Europe. Just two wins from their first six games of the season have raised questions about the club’s prospects this summer despite a big spending summer.

Arrival Deadline Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang kicks off and makes his debut, complete with a custom-made face mask, as Thomas Tuchel looks to add some much-needed firepower to his attack, in what should be a fairly routine opening game. against what is expected to be the scapegoats of Group E.

Loanee Denis Zakaria is another hope for his first few minutes but will have to wait after being named on the bench, while Mateo Kovacic will start against his first and home club. Veteran defender Thiago Silva has stayed home to rest before the weekend. Follow the game with Standard Sport’s dedicated live blog below!

GOAL! Dinamo Zagreb 1-0 Chelsea | Mislav Orsic 13′


Unbelievable, absolutely nothing. Ball thrown forward, Petkovic heads and Orsic is in a foot race with Fofana.

He’s too quick for the defender, he gets into the box and just passes Kepa. Sensational ending.


13 minutes: Dinamo’s players have hardly left their own area. A party as one-sided as Chelsea could have wanted so far.

Guilty of playing too much in the last third, looking to score the perfect goal.


10 minutes: Aubameyang seems to have no interest in shooting.

He has the freedom of the right wing, no one near him and he finishes off the area. A bit of a tight angle, there’s still plenty of room to make a shot.

He opts for a nice cut to Sterling, but it clears.


9 minutes: Dinamo have their first real attack, Chelsea almost cleared and then they go into the break.

Sterling steps forward, passes it to Havertz in the overlap, who shoots it straight into the goal. Aubameyang was in the box but had stopped his run, he can’t get to the end of it. It would have been a touch.


6 minutes: Great opportunity! Or not, now the offside flag is raised.

Sterling slips a beautiful pass through Aubameyang, he opts not to shoot and instead returns it across the box.

He’s in Sterling’s way, his shot is very well blocked. Not that it matters now.


4 minutes: The visitors dominate possession as expected. Non-stop wall of noise from the stands, the home fans are going to enjoy this no matter what.

Although he wouldn’t mind if his team had a touch of the ball…


2 minutes: It’s a confident start from Dinamo, pressing just up the pitch. Kepa has to stumble out after a bad back pass to keep it in play on his first touch.

Chelsea’s first attack is slowed down as Sterling quickly has a blue jersey flying over him.



Here we go!

The Champions League group stage is about to start!

The players take to the field in Zagreb, a bright atmosphere as expected. This will not be easy for Chelsea.


Nizaar Kinsella at Stadion Maksimir

Mateo Kovacic has many friends and family present at the Stadion Maksimir.

The midfielder is receiving a lot of love from the public and has spent time getting to know people from Dinamo Zagreb, the club where he made his professional debut at just sixteen years old.

He said that he is still a fan of the Croatian giants and is known to have cried when he left Dinamo. Locally, this is seen as his game, not Pierre Emerick Aubameyang’s debut.
