Team News: Lokomotiva Zagreb
There aren’t many selection issues, with just the sole fitness concern for the Lokomotiva Zagreb boss Silvijo Čabraja to be concerned with due to a largely intact squad. Lukas Kacavenda (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) won’t play.
Team News: Dinamo Zagreb
In an otherwise available squad, there is just a single fitness problem for the Dinamo Zagreb gaffer Ante Čačić to be concerned with. Bosko Sutalo (Fibula Fracture) misses out for this game.
We’re inclined to think that Lokomotiva Zagreb certainly have the ability to breach the defence of this Dinamo Zagreb side, however a single goal might not be enough to avoid a loss.
We are therefore anticipating a close game with a 1-2 winning margin for Dinamo Zagreb at full-time. There shouldn’t be much in it, either way.
