Manchester City vs. Dinamo Zagreb – Score prediction (01.10.2019)


Clear favourites in this one, Manchester City got off to a perfect start this Champions League (CL) group stage with a big away win in the first round (0-3), and now take on current group leaders Dinamo Zagreb. Goals can be expected, as City’s last ten CL matches have featured 4.2 goals on average. City have reached the knockout stage in six straight seasons, often founded on strong home form. Last season they scored a whopping 20 goals from their five total home matches in the tournament – this season they’ve scored 14 in their first three competitive home matches (4.67 on average)!

Dinamo, meanwhile, got off to a somewhat shocking start to the tournament, thumping Atalanta 4-0 – their biggest-ever win in the tournament. Not only was the margin of the win unexpected, the result ended a run of 11 straight defeats in the CL group stage. In their last five competitive matches, Dinamo have scored 16 goals (3.2 on average) but none of those saw both teams score. Indeed, both teams have scored in just two of Dinamo’s last 11 matches.
