Dinamo Zagreb Preview – Can Dinamo put Champions League disappointment behind them as they look for European success ?

Dominant in domestic football, Dinamo have become accustomed to playing in the Champions League. They’ve reached the group stages in three of the last five seasons but came undone this time around when losing out 2-1 away to Ferencvaros in the third round of qualifying. That resulted in the dropping in them dropping into the Europa League where they had little problem in disposing Estonians Flora. They won 3-1 at home in the one-legged playoff tie.

The Croatian champions will therefore be competing in the group stages of this competition for the first time in two years. They qualified for the knockout phase on that occasion and made it to the last 16 where they were eventually beaten by Benfica. A similar sort of run will be their aim this time around, too.

(odds taken 2000 GMT, Tuesday 20 October)
Dinamo continue to set the pace in their domestic league. The current holders are top of the table after seven games in which they have won six of them. There are several teams on their tail at the moment but bearing in mind it’s very early in the campaign it’s still expected they will have far too much for their league rivals.
A notable trend in their games so far this season has been the number of goals they have scored and conceded. Their last nine have seen both teams scoring and 41 goals in total.

Feyenoord Preview – Will Feyenoord continue unbeaten start to the season when they travel to Zagreb?

The veteran coach Dick Advocaat embarks on another European campaign in a competition he knows well having won it when boss of Zenit in 2008. His current team may well be long odds to repeat their triumph of 2002 but they will be looking to perform a lot better than the last season when they finished bottom of their group and with just five points after their six matches.

Advocaat celebrates his first year in charge of the club this month and will be relatively happy with how the Rotterdam club have began this season. Saturday’s draw against city rivals Sparta seen them drop off joint-top but they are only two points behind Ajax.

There has been no shortage of goals for Feyenoord having hit 12 goals in their five Eredivisie games. The impressive Steven Berghuis has scored six of those and will be the biggest threat to Dinamo Zagreb tomorrow. He scored one goal in the group stage last season.

Feyenoord will also be confident of their game standing up to the test away from home having both their road games in the league – scoring six goals and conceding only one.

Dinamo Zagreb vs Feyenoord Betting Advice

It’s a very open looking group so there will be nothing definitive either way regardless of the score tomorrow. However, Dinamo will be looking to make home advantage count whilst Advocaat knows the importance of picking up points on the road when it comes to qualifying.

This will be the first time the clubs have ever met in a competitive game.

Key Facts – Dinamo Zagreb vs Feyenoord Betting Tip

  • Dinamo find themselves playing in this competition having been eliminated from Champions League qualification
  • Feyenoord will be hoping to do better than 12 months ago when they finished bottom with just five points

I think this is game that will be packed full of goals. Dinamo score for fun domestically and have a really exciting style of play. Feyenoord also appear to be much more dynamic this season and their recent record suggests they’ll score and concede plenty. Over 2.5 goals look to be a very strong selection in this one.
