Kick-off at 20:05 UK/21:05 CET
Venue: Stadium NK Varteks (Varazdin).

NK Varazdin was promoted as the champions from Druga HNL last season. However, the champions will have a bigger problem when facing the reigning champions of Prva HNL at NK Varteks Stadium.

  • Varazdin form: 26 matches – 3 wins – 8 draws – 15 losses – 17 points.
  • Zagreb form: 26 matches – 21 wins – 2 draws – 3 losses – 65 points.

NK Varazdin is winless in the recent four league encounters, following a 2-0 loss on the road against Osijek in their previous clash in the campaign.

The 2-0 win at home for Dinamo Zagreb against Istra 1961 in their previous league fixture has contributed to their four-game winning streak in the contest.

NK Varazdin vs Dinamo Zagreb Prediction

Varazfin has been dropping points lately, and it will prove fatal for them in the clash. They are at the ultimate bottom of the table this season and probably will return to the lower tier.

The promoted side has recorded only 3 wins in their 26 appearances. Evidently, the host does not stand a chance against the side at the top of the table with 21 wins in the same period.

In their first meeting this season, Samir Toplak and his men caught the reigning champions by surprise in a 1-0 encounter at home. Zagreb avenged the loss with the same scoreline in the reverse fixture.

Now, when the teams meet yet again at Varazdin this season, we can expect Dinamo to create more chances in the clash based on their league performance until now.

The away win is at low odds and hence, the tip for Zagreb to win with a -1 handicap at 1.60 odds will be a suitable bet for the punters. Igor Jovicevic and his men have scored an average of 2 goals per match on the road. Hence, the tip of under 3.5 goals at 1.44 odds will be the best bet in the clash.
