Dinamo Zagreb are set to take on Red Bull Salzburg in less than 13 hours in their Champions League third qualifying round encounter. With Salzburg only 200 miles away from Zagreb, one thousand Dinamo supporters have already made the trip for the big game with more on the way.
Will the BBB play nice in Austria or will it be a repeat of the friendly a few weeks ago?
Dinamo has a legitimate chance of qualifying for the Group Stage of Champions League this season. If they can get past Red Bull and beat another roughly weak opponent in the playoff round- they’re in!
Prediction: Dinamo and Salzburg will play to a conservative 1-1 draw with Mario Mandžukić scoring an important away goal. Dinamo, as a whole unit, will play much better compared to the games against Pyunik.
Any other thoughts before kick off?
