Match preview

Will this be the start of an historic Champions League campaign for GNK Dinamo Zagreb?

On the competition’s opening Tuesday, the Blues caused a big upset by beating Chelsea.

Mislav Oršić run from inside his own half, followed by a tidy finish, the only goal of the night at Stadion Maksimir.

A word of warning though, the two previous occasions Dinamo have won their Champions League opener, 2015 and 2019, they’ve gone onto finish bottom.

In fact, this is the serial Croatian champions’ eighth foray in the Champions League group phase, only finishing anywhere other than last once, this coming on debut back in 1998.

Given that, Ante Čačić’s team would probably settle for the Europa League spot right now.

I Rossoneri currently have a point to their name, earned thanks to Alexis Saelemaekers’ cooly taken equaliser away to RB Salzburg.

Milan finished bottom in their group 12 months ago so, despite being the competition’s second-most successful club, haven’t featured in the knockout rounds since 2014.

Nevertheless, as current Serie A champions, and having won the Derby della Madonnina earlier this month, Stefano Pioli’s team are certainly in a good place right now.

Will A.C. Milan leap to the top of Group E, for a couple of hours at least, with victory at San Siro?
