Dinamo Zagreb will look to get back to winning ways when they host Salzburg this Tuesday.
The hosts were beaten 1-0 by their visitors last time out in the reverse fixture that was played in Austria. The loss was their second loss in the UCL and has them sitting bottom of the Group E table with three points.
So far, their only win in this tournament has come against Chelsea at home. With their last two UCL outings both coming away from home, they will be happy to return home to their fortress where they are unbeaten in over a year.
The hosts have won each of their last eight games at the Stadion Maksimir in all competitions. They have scored 3+ goals in eight of their last ten home games and have tasted just one defeat across their last 13 home games in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) including qualifiers (W8, D5).
Such a strong home form will give them confidence going into this game, which will be the first of two consecutive CL games at home.
They will hope to take advantage of their home crowd in those two games as maximum points from those games will guarantee that they at least finish third on the table and qualify for the Europa League group stage qualifiers.
Possible Dinamo Zagreb starting line-up
Dominik Livakovic; Stefan Ristovski, Bosko Sutalo, Dino Peric, Robert Ljubicic; Luke Ivanusec, Arijan Ademi, Martin Baturina; Mislav Oršić, Dario Spikic, Bruno Petkovic.
RB Salzburg will look to make it three wins in three when they travel to Zagreb on Tuesday.
The Austrian side followed up their 1-0 win over Zagreb with a dramatic 3-2 win over Altach at the weekend. The win kept them two points ahead of Sturm Graz in the Austrian Bundesliga after eleven rounds of games.
In the UCL, they are also top of their group after recording an unbeaten start to the campaign (W1, D2). With the race for supremacy in the group still very close, they will travel to Croatia desperate to record a win as that will at least all but guarantee them a place in the Europa League group stage qualifiers.
Having never lost to Dinamo Zagreb in seven meetings (W4, D3), they will go into this tie confident of recording a positive result.
Possible RB Salzburg starting line-up
Philipp Koehn; Amar Dedic, Kamil Piatkowski, Oumar Solet, Maximilian Wober; Nicolas Capaldo, Nicolas Seiwald, Maurits Kjaergaard; Noah Okafor, Benjamin Sesko, Chukwuebuka Adamu.
