Dinamo Zagreb vs Shakhtar Donetsk Match Preview
Dinamo Zagreb host Shakhtar Donetsk for their Champions League clash just two weeks after snatching a thriller 2-2 draw in Kharkiv, where they kept hold of a top 2 spot in Group C with four points now to their name and better goal difference than the visitors thanks to a convincing win over Atalanta (4-0).
Indeed, Blues have been in great shape in front of the home fans and they’ll now have high hopes they can build on the performances, with six wins and a single draw in 11 home outings across competitions this term. We thus expect them in a great mood once again and Ukrainians could be in for an even tougher task.
Shakhtar Donetsk have thus seen the rivals end their six-match winning streak and they’ve seemingly struggled to recuperate quickly. They’ve seen Oleksandria (0-0) snatch a point at Metalist Stadium and Dynamo Kyiv (2-1) make their way to Cup Quarter-finals, only ending the unwanted series with a 0-3 win over Karpaty on Saturday.
However, it feels the Miners will have to do more to cause an upset at Maksimir although their records on the road look impressive, including a 1-2 win at Atalanta on their first Champions League trip this term. They have been scoring goals on the regular, though, and pose a very serious threat we feel.
Still, we are backing Dinamo Zagreb to bag all three points and going for a Home win here feels like the best approach to the fixture at 6/5 with William Hill, seeing the Blues’ fine form at this ground earlier this term.
We hope to see thrills and the visitors should be able to have their say in it. We’ll thus also go for a high-scoring occasion at Maksimir Stadium, where Over 2.5 Goals FT looks like great value for those keeping faith we’ll see a winner, priced at 17/20 with William Hill.
