Arsenal travel to Croatia to take on Dinamo Zagreb which could be a tougher gaers are expecting. Arsenal have a tendency to struggle to break down blanket defences and I cant see Dinamo Zagreb playing a free flowing game on Wednesday. Arsene Wenger will look to Sanchez,Ozil, Giroud, Walcott and Cazorla to provide the offensive inspiration. Arsenal have won three of four in recent weeks and the only blot on the page was a 0-0 draw with Liverpool. Arsenal look to have found some form but they still struggled to break down Stoke at the weekend. Can Arsene Wenger's side do what both Manchester Clubs failed to do on Tuesday night and win?
Dinamo Zagreb are already two points clear in Croatia and they have won four of their last five including scoring eleven and conceding just one in their last three. This is a team that is solid in defence and will know that they are playing on the counter attack tonight. Giving up possession and playing a pacey counter attack gameplan can work for Zagreb given the Henriquez and Fernandez ability and pace up front. Dinamo are going to be up for this game and playing at home the atmosphere will be tremendous.
This is a tough game for Arsenal, I reckon it will be defensive and I think the unders are probably a good play but given the prices I cant fine any value there. Instead I am taking the draw at halftime as I see Dinamo being ultra cautious in the first half packing the midfield and just making things difficult for Arsenal. I am banking on Dinamo being able to hold Arsenal in the first half.
