Marko Djira (Muscle Injury) and Indrit Tuci (Torn Knee Ligament) will not be taking part for Lokomotiva manager Samir Toplak.
Team News: Dinamo Zagreb
Thanks to a fully injury-free squad available to select from, Dinamo Zagreb manager Damir Krznar does not have any fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this clash.
We’re of the opinion that Dinamo Zagreb can be in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of their chances.
At the same time, Lokomotiva Zagreb might well find it difficult getting on the scoresheet although we reckon that they could well end up seeing enough of the ball to score, too.
Accordingly, we see a pretty comfortable 1-3 winning score for Dinamo Zagreb by the conclusion of the game.
