Dinamo Zagreb needs 3 points to keep their Dreams of Europe competitions this season alive. They will be hosting Olympique Lyonnais Stadion Maksimir on Tuesday night.

Dinamo Zagreb are still without a point in the Champions League, they have failed to win any of their games. Also they have no goal so far in the competition, but have conceded 12 in the last 4 games. They need to win the remaining 2 group games if they hope to remain in the European competitions this season.

Meanwhile, Lyon’s last visit to Zagreb was a nightmare for Zagreb fans, but a night to remember for French fans. Lyon dismembered Dynamo Zagreb as the game ended 7-1 in their favour. This season they have already beaten Zagreb 3-0 in France and are hopeful of another win at Zagreb. A win in this game will guarantee Lyon’s stay in any of the European competitions this season.
