All eyes will be on Huvepharma Arena when Ludogorets and Dinamo Zagreb take on each other in the first leg of the Champions League third qualifying round.

Despite failing to impress in the double-header with Shkupi, Dinamo eventually set up a meeting with Ludogorets, and, to make things even better for the fans, the Croatian champions rolled over Istra 4-1 at the weekend.

As always, a man to watch in the away team will be Bruno Petkovic, who was rested in the crushing of Istra, while Mahir Emreli is pushing for a start as well.

Both Josip Sutalo and Kevin Theophile remain in the recovery room, while Dario Spikic is a major doubt.

The Bulgarian champions, on the other hand, faced no difficulties in a 5-0 triumph over Spartak Varna at the weekend, but their display in a 2-1 loss to Shamrock Rovers was anything but promising.

Dinamo are more of a team than Ludogorets, and we predict that Ante Cacic’s troops are going to emerge triumphant in the first leg.

To make things even worse for the home team, Angola midfielder Show is banned for the match.

This match will be played on 02/08/2022 at 18:45

Prediction: 1-2

Recommended Pick: X2.
