Dinamo Zagreb – FK Krasnodar : Preview & Prediction
Dinamo Zagreb seems to have done the most by winning in Russia (3-2) in this Round of 16 first leg but will have to be serious and diligent to confirm a “possible” qualification for the 1/8 round. The Croatian club could count on the efficiency of Petkovic author of a double in the first act at Krasnodar Stadium. Co-leader of the Croatian championship with Osijek, Dinamo Zagreb has 4 wins in its last 4 performances against Lokomotiv Zagreb (2-0), at Istra 1961 (1-0), against Osijek (1-0) and Krasnodar (3-2) in C3. Unbeaten in its last 12 receptions in the Europa League, Mamic’s training has shown solid during the group stage with 1 draw against Feyenoord (0-0) and 2 wins in front of Wolfsberger (1-0) and against the CSKA Moscow (3-1). Krasnodar has therefore to worry about at the Stadion Maksimir !. The Russian club, only 7th in its league, has lost 4 of its last 5 matches against Orenburg (1-2) and against Lokomotiv Moscow (0-4) in friendly matches then against Dinamo Zagreb (2-3) in Europa League and most recently in the Round of 16 of the Russian Cup against Sochi (1-2) this Sunday. Nothing works for Musaev’s team who could, due to their poor state of form, suffer yet another setback on Croatian soil.
Dinamo Zagreb won 3-2 in Russia in the first leg.
Numerous absences in Krasnodar: Oyongo, Petrov, Ramirez, Safonov, Stotsky, Utkin.
