Dinamo delight in Zagreb
Dinamo Zagreb will take a 3-2 advantage into the second-leg of this tie and they will be confident of progressing given they are unbeaten in their last 12 Europa League matches at the Stadion Maksimir.
Indeed, Zoran Mamic’s side have not lost any of their eight games in this season’s Europa League and they are currently on a five-game winning streak in the competition.
Krasnodar will head into the contest having lost both their matches since the winter break ended in Russia, as they followed up their defeat in the first-leg of this tie with a domestic loss to Sochi.
Murad Musayev has at least seen his side score in both those defeats, while they have netted in eight of their nine European matches this season, all but one of which came in the Champions League.
Indeed, Krasnodar scored in all three of their away matches during the Champions League group stage and we are predicting them to get on the scoresheet in Zagreb as well.
However, that is likely to be as good as it gets for the Russians, as Dinamo’s impressive unbeaten run in the Europa league suggests they should win this game and we predict they will do so by a comfortable 3-1 margin.
