Lokomotiva has come straight to the quarter-finals of the CL qualifiers as similar to the visitors. The host has been busy with their new league season starting in the schedule. Zagreb was the runners up in HNL last season with 65 points picked up from their 36 league appearances.
Their previous encounter was at home in Croatia HNL against Rijeka with a 1-0 scoreline. They have lost only two of the last ten clashes in the campaign schedule.
Rapid Wien will visit after a gap in their schedule except for the club friendlies. The 3-1 loss on the road against Wolfsberger AC in the Austrian Bundesliga last time out was their prior appearance in a major competition in the schedule.
The visitor was the runners up in the Bundesliga and was 12 points behind the league table toppers in last season. They had three losses within the last five league clashes in their form.

NK Lokomotiva vs Rapid Wien Prediction
Rapid Wien hasn’t played in a major contest since the last month, and it is likely to reflect in their form for the upcoming match. Despite losing a couple of games, NK Lokomotiva has been busy in their schedule across major competitions including the new season Croatian HNL fixtures.
Playing at home will be another added advantage for the host, and thus we can back Lokomotiva Zagreb with a double chance in the encounter. The Austrian contingent is not likely to return home without a fight and hence, the BTTS will come in handy for the punters in the clash.
