Dinamo Zagreb Preview – Will Dinamo’s dominance of this section continue?

Three straight wins have seen Dinamo take control of this section and ensure qualification for the knockout phase. The Croatian champions will top the group regardless of results on match day six but they will want to attempt to preserve their unbeaten record and also try to go through the group campaign without conceding a goal. Which in itself would be a unique achievement.

Dinamo began the group with draws against Feyenoord and CSKA Moscow before reeling off back to back victories over Wolfsberger and then a dominant win in Rotterdam last week which secured them top spot. It’s certainly gone some way to making up for being knocked out Champions League qualification earlier in the season.


Our betting prediction:
Dinamo Zagreb to win to nil

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Wednesday 9 December)
Dinamo do find themselves in the unfamiliar position of second place in their domestic league, albeit they do have two games in hand over the leaders Osijek, who are currently a point ahead. In general their home form is very strong, however, with eight wins and two draws from their last 10 matches in all competitions.
With just six goals scored in their five group games so far it’s in contrast to what we normally expect from this Zagreb outfit. But it does show you the value and importance of being well drilled in European competition.

CSKA Moscow Preview – Can CSKA end what has been a very disappointing campaign on a more positive note?

It’s been a European campaign to forget for CSKA and they will just be wishing for it to be over now. The Russians travel to Zagreb on Thursday knowing that whatever happens they are unable to qualify. A 1-0 loss at home to Wolfsberger was the latest in a long list of disappointments in the section and they are now making up the numbers.

With three draws from their five games there will be a frustration amongst the CSKA camp that by winning just one of those they would be in with a chance, but it’s not to be.

CSKA’s form in general has been extremely poor of late. Having started the domestic season well they have failed to win any of their last three in the Russian Premier League and none of their last five in all competitions. Pressure is starting to build on head coach Viktor Goncharenko who celebrates four years in charge this month.

With only two goals in their five group games it’s no mystery to see it’s went wrong for CSKA. One crumb of comfort for them coming into this game is the fact both goals have come away from home.

Dinamo Zagreb vs CSKA Moscow Betting Advice

It’s a dead rubber in the context of qualification but Dinamo’s motivation is obviously greater by the fact they can go unbeaten and ensure they keep that excellent defensive record in tact. You have to feel that the visiting team will be there in spirit and very little else, especially as they attempt to get back to winning ways domestically at the weekend.

Anybody looking for a more entertaining game than the first meeting between these teams may be somewhat disappointed as a result.

Key Facts – Dinamo Zagreb vs CSKA Moscow Betting Tip

  • Dinamo will top the group regardless of this result and have yet to concede a goal in their five matches
  • CSKA have yet to win a game in the group and are already eliminated from the competition
  • The teams played out a goalless draw when meeting in Moscow towards the end of October


Due to the respective form of both teams, mixed with the motivation levels of the two then I’m surprised that the home team are around evens for this match. That’s too good not to back despite them not needing a result and they’re the selection.
