Dinamo Zagreb vs Shakhtar Donetsk

, KO: 20:00 Nov 6, 2019, Stadion Maksimir
Shakhtar Donetsk

THIS Zagreb encounter looks a straight shootout for the runners-up spot in Group C behind runaway leaders Man City.

Dinamo and Shakhtar sit on four points after sharing the spoils in a 2-2 draw in Ukraine last time out and the winning side here will be in the box seat to qualify.

Both sides top their domestic leagues and Dinamo head into this clash on the back of five straight league wins and four clean sheets.

At home they are a real danger – as their 4-0 demolition of Atalanta on matchday one proved – and have suffered just one defeat in their last 32 matches at the Stadion Maksimir.

They are a juicy 13-10 at Betfred to make it two home wins from two, while Shakhtar are 23-10 outsiders at Unibet, with the draw paying 67-25 at Marathonbet.

I fancy the hosts to take at least a point against a Donetsk side who don't always convince on the road in the Champions League and are contending with a raft of injuries.

Shakhtar were hit for six away to Man City and have shipped 2+ in four of their last six away outings in the competition. They'll have their hands full against livewire striker Mislav Orsic, who is Zagreb's top scorer with 12 goals in 17 appearances.

The 26-year-old bagged a hat-trick in the rout of Atalanta, as well as scoring a penalty in the 2-2 draw in Donetsk, and is an inviting price of 11-4 at Paddy Power to net any time.

Depite their vulnerabilities at the back, Shakhtar's Brazilian blended frontline usually deliver at the other end. That's why, even though Zagreb have kept six successive clean sheets at home, both teams to score is just 4-6 at bet365.

Rather than goals, considering backing cards. The previous meeting featured seven bookings – three for Shakhtar to Dinamo's four – and with the stakes so high, tempers could fray.

Shakhtar picked up four cards in their other away outing in the group, a last-gasp 2-1 win at Atalanta, and Dinamo had two at home to the Italians, so go for over one booking each team at a shade under evens.
