Benfica hosts Dinamo Zagreb

Benfica hosts Dinamo Zagreb in a second leg from the 1/8-finals of Europa League. Let’s take a look at this fixture at the Estadio Da Luz in our vip soccer predictions today.

Surpisingly or not, Dinamo Zagreb have a clear advantage after the first game. The clash at the Maksimir in Zagreb ended with a 1-0 win for the Croatian champion. The only goal in the game was scored by Bruno Petkovic by a penalty kick in the 38th minute.

For Benfica this was not a good game. The manager Bruno Lage tried to change some things, but even the inclusion of Rafa Silva and Andrija Zivkovic after the halftime break didn’t help the Portuguese giants very much. Dinamo got the result they wanted and now the Balkan team have a very precious advantage before the hard game in Lisboa.

You can be sure that Benfica won’t leave things like this. The Eagles will try to go as further as possible in the competition and this includes eliminating Dinamo. The second leg is in Lisboa, which is a great opportunity for Benfica to show what they are really capable of.

In their last game in the Portuguese Primeira Liga Benfica dissapointed their fans with a 2-2 draw at home against Belenenses. Jonas and Samaris gave a very good advantage to the Eagles, but the away team managed to equalise and win a point.

Meanwhile Dinamo Zagreb continue to dominate in the Croatian league. In their last game they won with 3-1 the derby against Rijeka. Gavranovic, Peric and Moro scored for the champions, who are going to win the title once again.

These are our vip soccer predictions today for the Europa League clash between Benfica and Dinamo Zagreb on Thursday night. It’s going to be an interesting game.
