Last season on home soil in the Champions League the Citizens racked up a 20 goals. They are going as one of the big frontrunners for success again in this competition, which is their ninth attempt. Manchester City are currently on a four-match winning streak in all competitions in which they have tallied up 17 goals. It’s a devastating attacking force that they have. City have lost one of their last eight in all competitions (W15 D2). While their defence isn’t as strong as Pep Guardiola would like to be, they have an embarrassment of riches in attack.

Dinamo Zagreb News and Form – Can Zagreb survive at the Etihad?

Zagreb will be delighted with their work on matchday one of this campaign. Mislav Orsic played a big part in the 4-0 win over Atalanta, as the forward got a hattrick for himself. That was an important first win for them, but they would not have wanted to face Manchester City having not gained anything from that opener. The victory over Atalanta was Zagreb’s fifth group stage mathc win in the UEFA Champions League in what was the 37th match (D5 L27). They should not pose a big threat to City.

Back in the 2016/17 season when they were last in the competition, Zagreb bowed out after losing all six fixtures. They had been on an eleven match winless streak of form in the Champions League group stage games before beating Atalanta. That still is their only win in 27 (D2 L24) group stage fixtures in the competition. Dinamo Zagreb reached the round of sixteen in last season’s Europa League. Qualifiers included, they have won five of their last ten European games. They started this campaign in the second qualifying round.
