Dinamo Zagreb and RB Salzburg face off on Tuesday in a Group E UEFA Champions League showdown at Stadion Maksimir.
These two teams faced off last Wednesday, and it was RB Salzburg that secured the 1-0 victory. It was Noah Okafor that scored the goal with a penalty kick in the 71st minute and that was enough to secure the victory. RB Salzburg had 47 percent of the possession and six shots on target. Dinamo Zagreb had 53 percent of the possession, but they only had three shots on target. In this game, Dinamo Zagreb needs to find a way to get the offense going and put more shots on goal.
RB Salzburg comes into this game sitting 1st place in the group having picked up five points. RB Salzburg faced off against Altach on Saturday, and they were able to secure a 3-2 victory. The first half was pretty uneventful, but in the second half, the offense started the scoring. They opened up the scoring in the 52nd minute and added goals in the 59th and 72nd minute. The defense did have some lapses, though, and they gave up a goal in the 57th and 78th minutes. They had six shots on target and 49 percent of the possession. Andreas Ulmer is dealing with an injury, and it’s not expected that he is going to get the start in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Dinamo Zagreb, who sits in 4th place in the group having picked up three points. Their last game was last Wednesday against RB Salzburg because their game that was scheduled for the weekend was postponed. The good news for Dinamo Zagreb is that with the layoff, they look to be pretty healthy coming into this game. They should have a full squad, which is good news because three points is so important here.
Dinamo Zagreb is much better at home, and they are going to find success in this game. They only gave up one goal in the last game against RB Salzburg, and they are going to lockdown with their defense in this game. I expect Dinamo Zagreb to score one or two goals and that will be enough to secure the win. Back Dinamo Zagreb.
