In the UEFA Champions League, Dinamo Zagreb are set to host Manchester City. 

It was a horrible weekend for Manchester City as they were defeated at home by Manchester United. The loss has made it incredibly tough for the Sky Blues to compete for the Premier League title and it seems like the team has shifted its focus to the Champions League. While the loss to Manchester United was a disappointing result, Manchester City still played extremely well as they controlled 72% of the possession and had 22 shots. It has been a consistent trend for Manchester City as they have played well regularly but have failed to get the result. With much of the focus shifting on the Champions League, Manchester City should be fully focused for this match. 

On the other side of the coin, Dinamo Zagreb enter this match having won their previous fixture 1-0 at home. Dinamo Zagreb have been dominant in the 1.HNL and are in a decent position in the Champions League. If Dinamo Zagreb win this match, they will have a good chance of qualifying for the next round. If Dinamo Zagreb are beaten, then the tournament will be over for the Croatian team. This is expected to be a tough match since Dinamo Zagreb are playing against an elite team in Manchester City. 

Dinamo Zagreb and Manchester City played each other earlier in the tournament. The match was played at the Etihad Stadium where Manchester City won 2-0. Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden scored goals for Manchester City. 

Looking at this match, I see Manchester City winning. Dinamo Zagreb are expected to fight hard at home but I don’t see them having enough to get a result against Manchester City. The under 2.5 goals seems like the best wager since I am expecting Dinamo Zagreb to defend strongly which should result in a low scoring match.

Pick:
Manchester City
