Dinamo falls into a tough group featuring five-time European champions, Bayern Munich; winners of 13 English titles, Arsenal FC; and current Greek champions, FC Olympiacos.
Dinamo faced Arsenal in the 2006 Champions League campaign and fought for a respectable 2-1 loss in London but ultimately allowed Arsenal to score five total goals in both legs against the London club.
But every match is going to be tougher than the last one. Dinamo will have rely on their youngsters to shine and their veterans to guide the ship if they don’t want to shame their name in Europe.
The first match will be played on Sept. 15/16 with the return leg to be played on Sept. 29/30 against a team to be announced soon.
Dinamo’s best hope is to take points from Olympiacos and perhaps Arsenal to end their group stage run in third place, which will automatically send them to the round of 32 of the Europa League. But this is a feat easier said than done.
Either way, the Modri have their work cut out for them.
