The reigning champions will kick-off their title defense at home. The Blues will head to this match unbeaten in 9 games, having won 7 and drawing 2 since losing to Aston Villa 2-1 in May. They bounced back from this loss as their recent Premier League win was against Aston Villa 3-0. They are also unbeaten in their last 5 home matches across all competitions, winning 4 and drawing the other 1.
Meanwhile, Zenit St. Petersburg will head to this match unbeaten in 20 games across all competitions. They have won 7 of the last 10 games and drawn the other 3, including 2 Russian league games away from home with 1-1 scoreline. Last season, Zenit finished bottom of a pretty average points table, losing twice to Borussia Dortmund and Club Brugge and only taking one point off Lazio.
Chelsea won the Champions League last season, and they strengthened their squad by acquiring big names in football during the transfer window. Zenit St. Petersburg, on the other hand, are top of the Russian Premier League and unbeaten in 7 league games. This is the first time Chelsea and Zenit Saint Petersburg are facing each other in the UEFA Champions League.
