Dinamo Zagreb vs Shkupi.Zagreb have won six and drawn three of their last ten home Champions League qualifiers.Shkupi lost 2-0 to Lincoln in the away leg of their first qualifying round tie and could easily have been eliminated.Croatian clubs have won eight and drawn one of their nine games against North Macedonian sides in major European competitions.
They start as red hot favourites to win at home to the North Macedonian champions, who scraped through against Lincoln Red Imps 3-2 on aggregate last week. Shkupi coach Goce Sedloski faced some issues ahead of that game after one player had no passport and another was refused an entry visa while his team failed to deal with the artificial surface in Gibraltar.
Teams from North Macedonia have fared badly against Croatian clubs in Uefa’s major competitions, losing eight of nine and conceding 25 goals across those games.
The expectation here is that Zagreb will have too much in attack for the visitors and could score multiple goals, but Sedloski has promised his side won’t come to Zagreb to surrender, so a lively affair could ensue.
Backing Dinamo to win with at least three goals in the game ought to bear fruit. We also predict over 2.5 goals to be scored.
Zalgris vs Malmo.Malmo are justified favourites here but they are without a clean sheet in nine Champions League games and played out a 6-5 thriller against Vikingur in the last round. Zalgiris have scored in eight of their last nine Champions League qualifiers and haven’t failed to score at home in this competition.Both Teams To Score and over 2.5 goals to be scored.
Queens Park vs Dundee.Queen’s Park have been in excellent form going forward and head into their third tie of the season having already scored nine goals, although they have conceded in both those ties against lower-league opposition. Fellow Scottish Championship side Dundee have scored three goals in each of their Scottish League Cup games this season. Tip Both teams to score and also we give over 2.5 goals scored.
