Dynamo Zagreb and Sheriff Tiraspol will decide in the second match which team will go through to the final qualifying round of the Champions League. The first meeting between these two was won by the Croatians with 1-0 in Moldova. This is why Dynamo will come out in this game as the favourites. The bookies give them a serious advantage and their chances of winning are estimated at odds of 1.4.
I can’t agree with this one and the reasons for my prediction are two.
First of all even with the loss in the first game at home, Sheriff Tiraspol remains a sufficiently strong club that has success in these qualifications. Before the match with Dynamo the team from Moldova won twice against its first opponent in the qualifiers in the Champions League and also has four wins from four matches in the domestic championship.
Dynamo in turn, despite their victory were not particularly convincing in their matches so far. In the first qualifying round they managed to win with great difficulty against the Bulgarian team Ludogorets with overtime goals in both games. In the championship of Croatia Dynamo also made a surprising draw and managed to achieve two difficult victories. The fact is that their game is not good enough and only luck has covered them so far.
Will their luck end tonight in the match against Sheriff? I am not sure about it, but I know that the odds given by the bookmakers are very attractive. You can bet for Sherriff’s win with a handicap of +1, 1.5 with odds of 1.9. So far in this year’s UEFA Champions League Dynamo haven’t win with more than one goal difference. The same can be said about the championship of Croatia where both of their wins came by just one goal difference. I don’t see their chances to win with two goals or more are so big in the rematch with Sheriff Tiraspol.
That’s why I will bet for the team from Moldova with Asian Handicap advantage of +1, 1.5. The coefficient for this prediction is 1.9
