Tottenham is welcoming Dinamo Zagreb to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the first leg of Round of 16 in the UEFA Europa League.
Tottenham is finally looking like the team they were at the start of the season, and they have won their last 4 straight games. Tottenham has improved massively in the attacking end, and they have scored 13 goals in those 4 games while conceding only 1 goal. With this great streak, Tottenham has climbed the EPL standings to 7th place with 45 points. Tottenham was playing against Wolfsberger in the previous stage of the Europa League, and they have won both of those games while scoring 8 goals and conceding only 1 goal in those two games. Vinicius is the leading goalscorer for Tottenham in the Europa League with 6 goals, while Moura added 4 goals. Vinicius also added 3 assists. Lo Celso is the only injured player for Tottenham at the moment. In their last EPL game, Tottenham was playing against Crystal Palace at home, and they have had 64% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 1 corner kick, 4 big chances created, and a solid 88% of the correct passes. With 2 goals from Bale and 2 goals from Kane, Tottenham has won this game 4-1. It looks like Tottenham has gotten out of their slump, and they are back on the winning track, and it's all happening just in time for the Europa League where Tottenham could certainly be one of the finalists.
Dinamo is on an 8-game winning streak, and they have dominantly won their group in the Europa League while knocking out Krasnodar with 2 nice wins. In the Croatian First League, Dinamo is the best team, and they are in first place with 54 points, but the competition is stronger than ever, and I actually think Dinamo might not win the title this season, especially if they get past Tottenham and their European journey extends. During their 8-game streak, Dinamo has scored 15 goals while conceding only 2 goals, and they are playing really well on both ends. Dinamo was hosting Rijeka in their last game, and they were the better team in that match, and they have deservedly won that game 2-0. With 4 goals in 6 games, Petkovic is the leading goalscorer for Dinamo in the Europa League, while Atiemwen, Orsic, and Majer have each added 2 goals. Majer has also added 3 assists. Moharrami is the only injured player for Dinamo at this time. Croatian First League is not a strong league, but even with more competition, Dinamo is doing well, and playing well in the Europa League alongside that is impressive.
Tottenham and Dinamo have played only once against each other, and Tottenham has won that game 4-0. Dinamo’s coach has announced that they will not be satisfied with a point on the road, and they are going for the win, but it might just be a bluff because it would be a suicide to attack the team like Tottenham on the road. Tottenham is the favorite here, and it will be a fun matchup, but I will stick to goals, at least in the first leg.
