Mislav Orsic scores a classy goal as Croatian champions Dinamo Zagreb shock Chelsea 1-0 in their Champions League Group F opener at Stadion Maksimir on Tuesday night encounter.

Deadline-day signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was handed his Chelsea debut as Thomas Tuchel makes a rotation in the starting eleven.

Dinamo Zagreb take the early lead in 13 minutes when Mislav Orsic netted the goal running through from the halfway line as he classy dinked a finish past the advancing Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Stefan Ristovski’s thunderous, long-range shot was superbly tipped onto the bar by the Spanish goalkeeper.

Aubameyang was taught to have leveled the scoreline before it was choked out by the center referee but the former Arsenal skipper’s debut comes to an end before the hour mark when Armando Borja replaced the Gabonese striker.

Chelsea is keen on equalising as Reece James’ low shot rattle the foot of the post with five minutes remaining.

Dinamo Zagreb has a woeful record in the Champions League after winning just five of 43 games before this meeting against Chelsea.
