AEK – Dinamo Zagreb preview: Team news, form, and potential lineups

Read the news and updates on both teams right here, including our predicted AEK vs Dinamo Zagreb lineups:

AEK Athens

After winning four matches in a row in friendly games as a part of their preparation for the new season, AEK managed to bring that good form to their first competitive game, which was the first leg against Dinamo in Zagreb. The 2-1 win in that match gives the team from Athens a great chance to reach the next stage, especially since Dinamo won't have any fans in the stands in this match.

AEK Athens predicted lineups:

Stankovic – Sidibe, Vida, Moukoudi, Hajsafi – Jonsson, Szymanski – Amrabat, Zuber, Pineda – Garcia

Dinamo Zagreb

Despite their convincing performances in the previous round of Champions League qualifiers, Dinamo Zagreb failed to avoid a loss at home against AEK in this matchup. Dinamo has a lot of experience in these types of matches and they have been pretty regular in group stages of Champions League in recent years, but they will have a tough task now since they have to find a way to beat AEK in Athens to get to the next round.

Dinamo Zagreb predicted lineups:

Livakovic – Moharrami, Ristovski, Sutalo, Ljubicic – Bulat, Misic – Spikic, Mykhaylichenko, Ivanusec – Petkovic

Player to Watch: Luka Ivanusec

Since we suggested betting on Ivanusec to score in this match, it is only logical to go with the same player as our player to watch in this highly exciting duel.

After all, the young Croatian winger has been in great form this season for Dinamo Zagreb and he is the team's top scorer so far if we take all competitions into account. So, AEK will have to keep a close eye on Ivanusec in this game.
