Dinamo Tbilisi vs Dinamo Zagreb:
Champions League Qualifiers,
Date: Tuesday, August 2, 2016,
Kick-Off: 18:00 UK,
Venue: Boris Paichadzis Erovnuli (Tbilisi).
Dinamo Zagreb will travel to Boris Paichadzis Erovnuli Stadioni to face Dinamo Tbilisi as they hope to continue where they left off last week.
Tbilisi were unlucky last week as they received 2 goals without reply on the road against Zagreb in the first leg of this fixture. Now, they need to win by 2 goal margin or more and avoid an away goal that could count against, if they desire to move into the next phase of the competition.
Zagreb are one foot into the next round of the competition after the home win in the first leg of the fixture. Soudani put them in front in the 39th minute, 3 minutes later, Ante Coric made 2-0. They are in a formidable position and all they need to do is defend well and avoid a defeat by more than 2 goals to move into the next stage.
Dinamo Tbilisi vs Dinamo Zagreb: Head to Head
After the first leg of this fixture which ended 2-0 in favour of Zagreb, this will be the second time the two teams are playing each other. Besides that, they have not played any game in the past.
This game will give Zagreb the opportunity of playing a Georgian side in Georgian soil, as there is no history of games between them and a Georgian team except the first leg of this fixture.
Dinamo Tbilisi vs Dinamo Zagreb: Prediction
Zagreb have been on a 3-game winning streak in the UEFA Champions League, also they are unbeaten in their last 5 games in all competitions with 4 wins and a draw. Zagreb also have scored at least 2 goals in their last 3 Champions League games.
Except for the first leg loss of this fixture, Dinamo Tbilisi are unbeaten in their previous 4 games in all competitions with 3 wins and a draw. They have kept clean sheets in their last 2 games at home soil, if they can keep a clean sheet in this one while they hit the opponents goal, they will make it to the next round.
The game will be tough and could likely end in draw, i predict a goalless stalemate in this one.
1. Tbilisi win either halves
2. Tbilisi win or draw
