THE TEAM NEWS

DINAMO ZAGREB

  • Dinamo Zagreb had to overcome Saburtalo, Ferencvaros and Rosenborg to qualify and reach the Champions League group stage this summer.
  • As they welcome Atalanta to the Croatian capital, they have just the one injury doubt in Moro but the midfielder is expected to pass fit.
  • They have already played 14 competitive matches so far this season compared to Atalanta' three so they should have an edge in sharpness.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Livakovic; Stojanovic, Theophile-Catherine, Dilaver, Leovac; Ademi, Moro; Gojak, Dani Olmo, Orsic; Petkovic

Doubtful: Moro (Injured)

ATALANTA

  • Atalanta will make their debut in the Champions League after qualifying for the first time ever after finishing third in Serie A last year.
  • Gian Piero Gasperini has a fully-fit squad at his disposal for this match but he may name the same side that beat Genoa at the weekend.
  • Castagne has been carrying a knock and was an unused substitute at the weekend but he could potentially come in on the right for Hateboer.

Predicted line-up (3-4-1-2): Gollini; Rafael Toloi, Djimsiti, Masiello; Hateboer, De Roon, Pasalic, Gosens; Gomez; Ilicic, Zapata

THE PREDICTION

Atalanta make their Champions League debut and there will be plenty of excitement and anticipation in Zagreb around this game. Their matches have contained plenty of goals so far this season and with all the excitement in such a hot atmosphere in the Croatian capital, that could lead to a goal fest.
