Dinamo Zagreb to Win
We're going with the bookmakers and backing the home side Dinamo Zagreb to win on Wednesday. The hosts have won four of their last six matches in all competitions and beat Omonia Nicosia 2-0 at home in the last qualifying round. Legia Warsaw struggled against Flora at times and lost their last away game against Radomiak Radom 3-1 at the weekend.
Over 2.5 Goals
We're predicting goals in this game as two of Zagreb's last three matches have produced over 2.5 goals, as have two of Legia Warsaw's last four fixtures. The hosts have only failed to score in one of their last six outings and have scored at least two goals in four of their last six matches, while Legia have found the back of the net in each of their last six fixtures.
Clean sheets might well come at a premium in this game and we're actually backing both teams to find the back of the net in Croatia. Both teams scored in Zagreb's last game at home to Rijeka and the hosts have been finding the back of the net on a regular basis of late. Three of Legia's last five fixtures have seen both teams score and the visitors have scored in all of their last six outings.
All you need to know ahead of Dinamo Zagreb vs Legia Warsaw
Dinamo Zagreb looking to make the most of the home advantage
Dinamo Zagreb are the favourites to qualify from this tie after they secured a comfortable 3-0 aggregate win over Omonia Nicosia in the last round. Last time out Zagreb played out a 3-3 draw at home to Rijeka and we're hoping that the goals will continue to flow for our own entertainment this Wednesday. The hosts know the importance of securing a positive result and taking a lead into the next leg in Poland, as a draw on Wednesday will only give Legia Warsaw a confidence boost.
The visitors edged past Flora 3-1 on aggregate to setup their tie against Dinamo Zagreb and the draw couldn't have been much kinder for either club. However, the Polish side have made an indifferent start to the new season and the fact they could only manage a 1-0 win away at Flora suggests that they might not have what it takes to secure a win in Croatia this week.
