Match Preview:Chelsea have started the season on a pretty high note as they scored 12 goals in their first two games of the season and so far winning all of the their games and going very strong in the domestic front. With their main title challengers Manchester United dropping points their title challenge already look set for another year. Though they will be looking to start out on a good note in the Group Stages of the Champions League and considering the fact their group is not one of the toughest around they would want to win first three games and than concentrate on the league until the Knockout stages begin.
Match Prediction:On paper one cant see Zilina getting a win over Chelsea or getting a point eventhough they are playing at home, but historicaly Chelsea tend to start slowly in the group stages, But With Ancolotti at the helm I can see them going out their and winning their openng game easily.
