Vulnerabilities in 1.HNL
Dinamo Zagreb is still struggling to find its best form in the domestic league. The team has recorded 1 win, 1 draw and 1 loss. It is obvious that the participation of Dinamo in the preliminary rounds of the Champions League has been badly influencing the performance in 1.HNL. On the verge of the Play-Offs, Dinamo will be more determined than ever to get a comfortable result in the 1st leg.
Equally Strong Opponent
The Polish Ekstraklasa has just started so we are not going to evaluate the performance of the team in the domestic league. Till now, Legia eliminated the Norwegian champions of Bodo/Glimt and Estonian winners of Flora. Legia adds up Dinamo in terms of individual class and financial resources, so the 2-leg clash would be very difficult to be predicted.
Advantage for Dinamo
We are not stating that Dinamo Zagreb would be the final winner to qualify for the Play-Offs stage but at least the Croatian will try to win the 1st leg!
