Our prediction for this Champions League match:
Over the years Dinamo Zagreb have established themselves as a regular UEFA Champions League participant, but they have been struggling in the elite competition this term. The Blues were hammered by Lyon (0-3) in their opener and they experienced all sorts of problems in a 4-0 defeat to Juventus. Dinamo Zagreb, though, regained a much-needed confidence at the weekend, with the team beating Slaven Belupo in the national championship. Anyhow, the Croats face an uphill task in Tuesday’s football match against Sevilla and seeing that the La Liga side have been producing fine performances under Jorge Sampaoli, we predict that the visitors will pick up all three points from the Stadion Maksimir game. Samir Nasri scored for Sevilla in a 3-2 win over Leganes at the weekend and the former Manchester City man will be one of the men to watch in the away side in Tuesday’s Champions League clash.
Highlighted Player (Junior Fernandes):
A Chilean footballer of Brazilian descent, Junior Fernandes is a 27-year-old striker who plays for the Croatian powerhouse Dinamo Zagreb. Fernandes started his career in Cobreloa and was forced to go through various clubs and league ranks to achieve his full professional promotion. A footballing nomad who played for no less than six different teams prior to his move to Croatia is considered one of the most valuable performers for Dinamo Zagreb.
Having first arrived on loan from Bayer Leverkusen in 2013, Fernandes made his switch a permanent one a following year when he signed a six-year contract. It didn’t take long for the Chilean forward to establish himself as a first-time choice for the Croatian powerhouse.
Junior Fernandes scored plenty of important goals for Dinamo Zagreb such as the 90th minute equaliser against RB Salzburg in the UEFA Champions League playoff, which sent the game into extra time allowing El Arabi Hillel Soudani to score a 2-1 winner and send his team to the group stage of Europe’s elite competition.
