Over 2.5 Goals

Much like the 1st leg, we're expecting goals on Wednesday night, over 2.5 to be exact. At least three goals have been scored in three of the last four meetings between these two clubs, as well as in four of Sheriff's last six outings in all competitions. Dinamo Zagreb have to push for goals right from the first whistle or risk letting this tie slip away from them.


The hosts have only failed to score in one of their last six matches in all competitions and both teams have scored in two of their last four home games. Both teams have also scored in four of Sheriff's last six outings and the visitors have found the back of the net in each of their last six matches.

Sheriff Double Chance

Sheriff hammered Dinamo Zagreb 3-0 in the 1st leg and have avoided defeat in three of their last seven encounters with the Croatia club. The hosts have failed to win three of their last six outings and Sheriff are unbeaten in their last six matches, so you can see why we've backed the away side to secure at least a draw on Wednesday night.

Everything you need to know about Dinamo Zagreb vs Sheriff

Dinamo have a lot of work to do if they are to turn this tie around

Dinamo Zagreb have left themselves with a really tough job to do on Wednesday, following that disappointing 3-0 defeat in the 1st leg. Scoring goals has been somewhat of an issue for the home side of late, with Zagreb failing to score more than one goal in any of their last five outings. A brace from Traore and a strike from Kolovos secured a comfortable 3-0 victory for Sheriff when a much closer 90-minutes had been expected.

Sheriff will be happy with their three-goal cushion and will be hoping that the 2nd leg follows suit. However, Dinamo Zagreb have the home advantage and will be looking to take the game to their guests straight from the kick-off. Sheriff need to hold firm, not concede an early goal and hope to hit Zagreb with a goal on the counter-attack to all but end the home side's chance of winning this tie.
