Dinamo Zagreb hosts Ferencvaros in a first match from the third qualifying round
Dinamo Zagreb hosts Ferencvaros in a first match from the third qualifying round of the Champions League. These two sides will meet on Tuesday at Stadion Maksimir in the Croatian capital. Here are our football prediction tips.
Just as we all expected, Dinamo didn’t face problems against the Georgian champion Saburtalo in the previous round. After winning the first game in Tbilisi with 2-0, the Croatian team kept another clean sheet and won the second leg with 3-0 at home. All of three goals were scored in the second half when Mislav Orsic, Bruno Petkovic and Daniel Olmo put the ball in the net.
In the Croatian 1. NHL Dinamo are currently leading the standings with three wins from three games played. In their last fixture the champions faced Gorica at home and enjoyed a 3-1 win. Olmo, Moro and Gojak scored for the home side.
Meanwhile Ferencvaros did the job against the Maltese Valletta in the previous round. The Hungarian team won the first game at home with 3-1, while a 1-1 draw in the second match in Malta was enough for Ferencvaros was enough for them to progress.
We can say that Ferencvaros had a more difficult opponent in the first round of the qualifications, when they faced the Bulgarian champion Ludogorets. Serhiy Rebrov’s boys did a terrific job against the Bulgarians, winning both matches against them.
For most of the people Dinamo Zagreb are the favourites here. After all, Croatia reached the final of the World Cup last summer, while Dinamo are usually having some terrific players. The Spanish star Dani Olmo is a good example of one. But be careful, because Hungarian football is also improving in the recent years. Ferencvaros will be a dangerous opponent for Dinamo. This is our conclusion in our football prediction tips.
