Sevilla and Dinamo Zagreb face off on Thursday in Leg 1 of their Group of 16 showdown at Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium. This will be the first meeting since 2016-17 when they faced off in the group stages of the UEFA Champions League. 

Sevilla finished in third place in Group G in the Champions League picking up six points. Sevilla FC has picked up at least a point in each of the last four games, but only one of those games was a victory. In the last game against Elche, the defense was strong, not allowing a goal, and that led to the 2-0 victory.  Sevilla has scored 36 goals total this year while the defense has given up 16 goals in La Liga. Rafa Mir has been the top player for Sevilla scoring seven goals. Lucas Ocampos has also been good, scoring five goals and adding two assists. 

On the other side of this matchup is Dinamo Zagreb who finished in second place in Group H of the Europa League having picked up 10 points. Dinamo Zagreb have won each of their last 11 games. In the last game against HNK Gorica, they were able to score two goals in the second half to come away with the victory. The defense did give up a goal in that game. They have scored 47 goals total while their defense has given up 17 goals. Mislav Oršić has been the top player for the team scoring nine goals. There are six different players that have scored at least three goals. 

Dinamo Zagreb has been winning games, but their defense hasn’t been great, and I expect that is going to be the case in this game. Look for both teams to score a couple of goals, and that will lead this game going over the total. Back the over 3.5 goals to cash.
