Shakhtar Donetsk vs Dinamo Zagreb Match Preview
These clubs look like battling it out for second place behind Manchester City in Champions League Group C – and Shakhtar Donetsk are backed to surge ahead of Dinamo Zagreb by winning on Tuesday.
Both sides have ensured that Atalanta’s debut in Europe’s elite competition is turning out to be a baptism of fire, for each have beaten the Italian side while losing to Manchester City.
Shakhtar Donetsk were defeated 3-0 in their home game against the English champions but snatched a last-gasp 2-1 victory against Atalanta, with prolific Brazil-born striker Junior Moraes equalising before Israeli youngster Manor Solomon notched a last-minute winner.
Dinamo Zagreb put four goals past the Italian side in the Croatian capital, Mislav Orsic scoring a hat-trick, and then only conceded the second goal of their 2-0 loss in Manchester right at the end.
That represented a creditable defensive performance by Dinamo and they certainly appear to have improved this season considering their Champions League group-stage record over the past decade has been pretty awful.
However, Shakhtar appear to be the classier side with a decent record of making it through to the knockout stage of this competition and can boost their prospects of doing so again by claiming three points here.
