This will be the first time these two clubs have faced each other, albeit Manchester City may have an upper hand. Whilst Manchester City have advanced to the Champions Leagues Quarter-finals in the last two seasons, Dinamo Zagreb were on a two year hiatus as they competed in the UEFA Europa League. Given City’s experience in the Champions League, it is predicted they will perform well in this match. Dinamo will be sure to provide City with a difficult challenge, but by full time it is predicted the hosts will edge out in this match.
