Team News: Hajduk Split
Hajduk Split manager Paolo Tramezzani will be grateful to have no fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this game owing to a fully healthy squad available for selection.
Team News: Dinamo Zagreb
In an otherwise full-strength squad, there’s only the one fitness problem for the Dinamo Zagreb boss Damir Krznar to be concerned about. Mario Gavranovic (Muscle Injury) won’t be playing here.
In our view, Hajduk Split may not find it easy to breach the defence of this Dinamo Zagreb outfit who we reckon will end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
Our tip is therefore for a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 win for Dinamo Zagreb after 90 minutes.
Should be a close one.
