Due to a mostly available squad, there’s just a single fitness worry for the Dinamo Zagreb gaffer Damir Krznar to be concerned with. Bruno Petkovic (Shoulder Injury) won’t be in action.
We feel that in this game, Dinamo Zagreb will most probably create a decent amount of chances and shots on target.
Conversely, Šibenik might well find it difficult finding the net themselves although we think that they will probably end up converting at least once here.
