Dinamo Zagreb vs Young Boys/ Champions League – Multiple champion of Croatia pulled out very good 1-1 with Young Boys in Basel six days ago. It means that both teams have realistic chance to reach the group phase of the Champions League, although due to away goal the team from Zagreb is in a bit better position now.
Dinamo Zagreb vs Young Boys begins 28.08.2018 at 21:00 CET
Everyone in Dinamo ranks is very much aware than even more difficult 90 minutes is waiting for them on Tuesday evening than it was the case eight days ago in Bern, regardless that this time they will enjoy great support from stands of the Maksimir stadium in Zagreb. Due to one conceded goal at home the guests from Switzerland are forced to play even more riskier now than it was the case in Bern and that will in turn put a lot of pressure on Dinamo defence, which didn’t play well in first 20 minutes of the 1st leg.
True, after the early goal they managed to put things where they belong in defence. After equalising the result to 1-1 Dinamo got additional dose of self-confidence and it managed to bring the match to its end with the result that gives them possibility to play a bit more calmly in the second match. The team from Zagreb won for the fourth consecutive time in the Croatian championship last weekend and in that way it stayed at the leading position. We need to add that due to injuries out of action are only goalkeeper Livakovic and midfielder Moro.
Probable lineups Dinamo Zagreb: Zagorac – Stojanovic, Theophile-Catherine, Dilaver, Leovac – Ademi– Hajrovic, Gojak, Olmo, Orsic – Gavranovic
Unlike their rivals from Zagreb, Swiss Young Boys had expected far more from the 1st leg, especially as they are known as very offensively when playing at their stadium in Bern. True, in the second minute Mabau scored for their lead but before the end of first half Dinamo’s forward Orsic equalised for 1-1, which obviously left a mark on team led by manager Seoane, as they haven’t managed to find way toward Zagorc’s goal before the end of match.
Still, their fans believe that everything will be corrected in the 2nd leg in Zagreb, especially as this time Young Boys will be stronger for recovered forward Assale, who scored two goals in his returnee match and victory over Xamaxa of 5-2. In that way Young Boys continue to have the perfect score in the Swiss championship. We should add that due to injuries still out of action are defender Lotomba and midfielders Lauper and Tixeira.
Probable lineups Young Boys: von Ballmoos – Mbabu, Wuthrich, von Bergen, Benito – Fassnacht, Sow, Sanogo, Sulejmani – Assale, Hoarau
Dinamo Zagreb vs Young Boys PICK
Although Young Boys were favourites to win the 1st leg in Bern the team from Zagreb managed in the end to pull 1-1 draw, which suggest that the second match at the Maksimire stadium could be lively and very likely with goals on both sides of the pitch.
