Dinamo Zagreb vs Genk Europa League Prediction by Leaguelane

Dinamo Zagreb vs Genk
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 25 November 2021
Kick-off at 17:45 UK/ 18:45 CET
Venue: Stadion Maksimir.

Dinamo Zagreb have been impressive this Europa campaign, and they have taken possession of the second spot in the table. With just two fixtures remaining in the group stage, they seem confident of qualifying for the preliminary knockout stage.

And in that regards, the upcoming encounter is a supremely important one – especially since they are locking horns with their nearest competitor – the third-placed Genk, who are going through a poor run as of now.

As such, expect Dinamo to go for the win this Thursday, right from the starting whistle.
