Match Preview & Team News
Dinamo Zagreb sit third in the Group C standings and need a miracle to make it to the last 16 phase ahead of the 6th round fixtures. The Croatian champions need a victory over Manchester City and Atalanta not to lose in Donetsk to go beyond the group phase.
The Croatian champions missed a huge chance against Shakhtar
The team led by Nenad Bjelica could have removed all doubts about the historical qualification to the knockout phase of the Champions League in the last two rounds. They had a 3-1 lead and an extra man on the field in the home fixture against Shakhtar Donetsk on Matchday 4 only to concede two goals in quick succession in the stoppage time of the affair. They went on to lose 2-0 at Atalanta and now need to beat the English champions to advance.
The Citizens won just one of the last four games
The visitors have already secured the first place in the group and have nothing to play for on Wednesday night. However, Pep Guardiola’s men do need a result here to boost up the confidence after a shocking 1-2 defeat to arch-rivals Manchester United in the city derby on Saturday at the Etihad. The champions are now as many as 14 points shy of Liverpool and 6 behind Leicester City at the top two positions in the Premier League ladder. They only drew 1-1 at home to Shakhtar and 2-2 on the road to Newcastle United in the recent outings.
Pep Guardiola’s squad shipped at least a goal in each of the last nine matches in all competitions. Such streak could well be continued in Zagreb if we know the hosts bagged as many as seven goals in two Champions League fixtures on the home patch thus far.
Full Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Even though Dinamo desperately need a win, we have to take the 4/5 odds offered for Manchester City to celebrate the victory here because of the gulf in quality between the two sides.
