The UEFA Champions League is one of the premier football tournaments in the world and before the main tournament starts, there is a qualifying round to get through to decide the final 32 teams.
Dinamo Zagreb travel away to Salzburg knowing that they could have sealed a victory in their home leg but wasted a lot of shots on target in that game in order to seal a victory. Aside from that draw against Salzburg, they have managed a great record coming into the new season winning 5 out of 6 games on the domestic front, while winning both legs of their 2 qualifying rounds played so far. Fernández, Soudani, Hozdic and Rog have been leading the way with the goals, and one can expect them to continue in their scoring form especially Rog who is looking for a potential big transfer away. Zagreb have netted in every game played so far this season while also conceding goals when taking on good teams like Salzburg in the first leg.
Salzburg are a very good team especially in front of their home fans and managed to seal a strong 3-1 victory in their domestic campaign on the weekend. They have only lost 1 of their 11 competitive games played so far this season, and will like to use their home advantage to help where they haven’t lost a competitive fixture since back in February. A lot of effort on the offensive end lies with their captain Soriano who struggled in the first game out, and will rely on his colleagues Belisha, Reyna and first leg scorer Lazaro to help him out on the scoring front. Miranda, Minamino and Prevljak will all be missing in action.
Both teams have qualified to this stage going through a qualifying round and their offences have been in good knick. Even in the first leg, they both had a lot of shots on target, but the finishing wasn’t as clinical as it should be. But with a big payday ahead of the winner of this game, you an expect both teams to be attacking and as a result I expect them both to score.
