Dinamo Zagreb vs Man City Betting Tips & Predictions
Dinamo Zagreb might only have five points from their five games played in the Champions League, although they stand a real chance of making the last sixteen of the competition.
The fixture schedule has been kind considering that they will entertain a Manchester City team who are already safely qualified and that means that Pep Guardiola is going to be fielding a weakened team for this unnecessary fixture.
While City have plenty of fringe players capable of causing damage, one team is certainly going to be more motivated, with Dinamo having kicked off the group stage with a 4-0 hammering of Atalanta, although they have failed to win their other four fixtures.
The Croatian side were involved in the craziest of 3-3 draws against Shakhtar a month ago when they led 3-1 going into extra-time and somehow conspired to concede twice, although the fact that they have scored seven goals at the Stadion Maksimir in two games illustrates that they will be full of attacking intent.
City will continue to be without Sergio Aguero for this clash, with Gabriel Jesus looking to make the most of his extra game time, while we are also likely to see Claudio Bravo, John Stones and Phil Foden on the pitch along with some of the youthful players in the City set-up.
It’s clear that Manchester City are the superior team and we can’t be completely confident that Dinamo will secure three points that will give them a sporting chance of going through depending on the outcome of the clash between Shakhtar and Atalanta.
However, we do think that at least a draw for the home side is on the cards and will be betting on Dinamo with half a goal start in search of profit.
