Saburtalo Tbilisi vs Dinamo Zagreb Match Preview
Saburtalo have enjoyed a meteoric rise to the Champions League, but their run this season looks set to end against a Dinamo Zagreb side who are very effective in the qualifiers.
Only founded in 1999, Saburtalo have really progressed since being bought by Georgia’s Minister of Sport (fancy that!) and after being promoted to the top flight in 2015 it took them only three more years to become champions of their country.
This is their debut European campaign and the club from Tbilisi have already made their mark, winning their opening Champions League qualifier 4-3 on aggregate against Moldovan side Sheriff Tiraspol.
After a superb 3-0 away triumph, Saburtalo looked in trouble when Sheriff had levelled up the tie only 11 minutes into the second leg but a second-half goal from Ognjen Rolovic proved enough to send them through.
Now they take on Dinamo Zagreb who, as the stats above outline, have a fantastic recent record in the European qualifiers, especially away from home, but generally capitulate in the Champions League group phase – although they did get to the Europa League round-of-16 last season.
This looks like being a step too far for Saburtalo, who are vying for the Georgian league title again midway through this season, and Dinamo are expected to win before completing the job back in Croatia.
