Chelsea v Dinamo Zagreb Betting Tips & Predictions

Chelsea are 1/3 favourites to beat Dinamo Zagreb in their Champions League clash at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night.

Graham Potter suffered his first defeat as Chelsea manager at the weekend, with the Blues torn apart by Brighton. 

Already guaranteed top spot in their Champions League group, Potter is expected to make a lot of changes for the visit of Dinamo Zagreb, who stunned Chelsea earlier in the competition. 

Dinamo Zagreb need a win to stand a chance of finishing third and dropping down to the Europa League. They have a lone point from their last four Champions League matches.

Anytime Goalscorer: Kai Havertz

8/5 (Bet365)

Kai Havertz could be rested here, but Potter might also see this as an opportunity for the former Bayer Leverkusen forward to build on his good form. 

Havertz has scored in consecutive matches, and has been averaging two shots per match in the Champions League.

Playing off Armando Broja or starting as the number nine, the German appears well-suited to Potter’s system and looks a good bet to make it three games in a row with a goal. 

To Be Shown A Card: Conor Gallagher

5/1 (Unibet)

Shown two yellow cards in just 132 Champions League minutes, the hard-working Conor Gallagher has a knack for clumsy and mistimed challenges. 

On loans with Crystal Palace and West Brom over the last two seasons, Gallagher amassed 21 yellow cards in 61 league starts.

With Dinamo direct on the break, Gallagher is a candidate to commit a counter-stopping foul. Equally, he could be caught out lunging for a loose ball.

Likely to get a start with Potter rotating, he’s a good price to be shown a card. 

Both Teams To Score: Yes

Evens (Coral)

Chelsea’s run of clean sheets came to an end, and they have conceded in three straight games. The defence was all over the place away to Brighton. 

The previous meeting demonstrated how Dinamo can expose this Chelsea back line. 

More space will be available if Potter perseveres with ultra-attacking wing-back selections.
