Our prediction for this Champions League match:
All eyes will be on Stadion Maksimir when Dinamo Zagreb take on star-studded Manchester City in their last group game. The Croats sit in the third position in Group C ahead of the visit of Pep Guardiola’s troops, but they are still in the race for a place in the Champions League last 32. Dinamo Zagreb are likely to go all-out attack against the Premier League champions, but beating Raheem Sterling and Co. is easier said than done.
The Citizens are undefeated in the 2019/2020 Champions League season, and they surely want to give fans some cheer following their slow start to the new Premier League season. Regardless of which players will be deployed in the starting line-up, we believe that away win should be considered. Since Dinamo Zagreb are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Wednesday’s clash, we predict that Pep Guardiola’s men are going to find the net on the break.
Highlighted Player (Dani Olmo):
After starting his youth career at Espanyol, Dani Olmo moved to fellow Catalan side Barcelona in 2007 at the age of nine. The Spanish player born in Terrasa on May 7, 1998 then moved to Dinamo Zagreb, where he established himself as a first-team regular.
Dani Olmo was on the verge of leaving the Croatian club in the summer of 2019, but he eventually stayed at Stadion Maksimir. Olmo is one of the most talented footballers in Spain and he helped the U21 team clinch the Euro 2019 trophy. La Furia Roja defeated Germany in the final of the tournament, with Olmo being named Man of the match.
The Spanish attacking midfielder, who is used as a winger as well, was named the Croatian First Football League player of the year for 2018. His preferred foot is right and he has a contract with Dinamo Zagreb until June 30, 2021.
