CFL: Dinamo – Zagreb UNDER 3,5 GOALS (1.99@Pinnacle)
CFL: Dinamo – (+2.75) ZAGREB (1.77@Pinnacle)
Zoran Mamic decided to rest some of Dinamo's key players before the match at Rijeka in the next round. Rog, Coric and Soudani will probably miss this one – maybe even some other players. Dinamo will win this match, no doubt about that, but the main problem is their player's motivation – after all, they won 7 of last 10 league matches by exactly one goal difference (1:0 five times, 2:1 twice, while only vs their B-team Lokomotiva it was 3:2). That mentioned match – as well as another win vs Lokomotiva (3:1) were the only 2 matches in the last 17 (!) in which 4 or more goals were scored.
In these same last 17 rounds of NK Zagreb – only once there were 4 goals scored – you wouldn't believe it was vs Lokomotiva (3:1). Round before they lost at the very same Dinamo 4:1, but that's only because Zagreb scored in the first minute. In the remaining two H2H matches this season, Dinamo won at Zagreb 2:0 and 2:1. I think the most likely result we'll se here is 1:0, 2:0 or 2:1. After all, Zagreb has great goalkeeper – Dominik Livakovic (keeper of U21 national team). He'll join Dinamo next season, and I don't think his future teammates will fill his net to the top.
CFL: Lokomotiva – Rijeka DRAW (3.62@Pinnacle)
CFL: Lokomotiva – Rijeka UNDER 2,5 GOALS (2.03@Pinnacle)
When two offensive minded teams play each other, you'd expect an over bet. But, Rijeka's first choice forward Bezjak and important midfielder Males are suspended for this one. On the other hand, Lokomotiva knows that a point here would be great – and they'd help their big brother Dinamo very much, before the derby in Rijeka in the next round. I think we'll see a match that will look like their Cup clash in December (Rijeka won 1:0, suspended Bezjak scored the only goal), Lokomotiva's coach Sreten Cuk isn't hiding that's what he'll try (He tried that in Rijeka last time they played – and they lost 2:0). On top ot that, last time these 2 clubs shared points was back in 2013 – and they played 13 times since then.
P.S. We might get involved with the remaining match - Slaven Belupo - Hajduk, scheduled for tomorrow. Please tune in tomorrow at 11 AM GMT.
