Man City can end their UEFA Champions League group phase campaign with a win when they travel to the Maksimir Stadium to face Dinamo Zagreb. City have already qualified for the knockout phase but are still expected to have too much for Dinamo who are winless in their last four matches in the competition.

Dinamo Zagreb Form


Dinamo Zagreb are coming off a 1-0 home victory over Varazdin in the Ukrainian league. They laboured for much of the contest before Mario Gavranovic struck the winner on 77 minutes.

Nenad Bjelica’s men are top of the table in Ukraine but have struggled to translate their domestic dominance to the Champions League. They are winless in their last four matches in the competition and were beaten 2-0 at Atalanta in their previous fixture.

Dinamo Zagreb News


Dinamo have no injuries or suspensions in their team and could name a similar side to the one that beat Varazdin. Forward Mario Gavranovic missed the defeat at Atalanta and could be handed a start following his goal on Friday, Nikola Moro is set to return after serving a suspension in Italy.

Manchester City Form


Man City suffered a 2-1 home defeat to local rivals Man United in the Premier League on Saturday. After going two goals down, Nicolas Otamendi came off the bench to pull one back as City racked up five attempts on target and 2.05 expected goals. 

City were held to a 1-1 home draw against Shakhtar Donetsk in their previous Champions League fixture. It was the second straight draw in the competition for Pep Guardiola’s men but was still enough see them secure to spot in Group C.

Man City are unbeaten in their last six Champions League matches, stretching back to last season’s semi final. They claimed four wins in that run, including a 2-0 victory over Dinamo Zagreb in the reverse fixture at the Etihad.

Manchester City News


Centre back John Stones limped off on Saturday and is a major doubt for Wednesday while Fernandinho is suspended. They are already without Sergio Aguero (Muscle), Aymeric Laporte (Knee) and Leroy Sane (cruciate ligament).

Dinamo Zagreb vs Man City Head to Head


Man City ran out 2-0 winners over Dinamo Zagreb in the reverse fixture at the Etihad. Second half goals from Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden were enough to seal the victory for the Citizens.

Dinamo Zagreb vs Man City Betting Odds


Dinamo Zagreb are outsiders at home at odds of 3.50 with a draw set at 3.90 while Chelsea are favourites at odds of 1.90. A 2-0 victory for City in the reverse fixture places a -1 handicap bet at 3.10 while a win to nil is offered at odds of 4.33.

With Dinamo Zagreb and Man City conceding often, a punt in the goals market should be considered. BTTS is priced at 1.44 while over 2.5 goals is also valued at 1.44 but if you want to go higher, over 3.5 goals is offered at 2.10 at bet365.

Dinamo Zagreb vs Man City Match Up


Milan Orsic often leads the line for Dinamo Zagreb but the striker has failed to score in the Champions League since a hat-trick against Atalanta on matchday one. He is often partnered in attack by Bruno Petkovic who is without goal in his last four matches.

Despite their missing players, Man City are still expected to make changes with the likes of second choice goalkeeper Claudio Bravo and youngster Phil Foden set to feature. They should still have enough quality to see off Dinamo despite the changes.
