Shkupi Team News
Shkupi has already achieved great success. This is the first time they have managed to reach the second round of Champions League qualification.
However, in the two meetings of the first round, we could see two faces of this team. In the first meeting, Shkupi was more successful than Lincoln with 3:0 on “home ground” without too many problems, and in return, it was a completely different story.
In the 69th minute, Lincoln led 2:0, and Shkupi was “on his knees”. However, with a lot of luck, they managed to “survive” this awkward visit. In the first game in Zagreb, they played unexpectedly bravely, and we must say that they deserved a draw.
It seems to us that Dinamo lightly underestimated the team from Macedonia, and that could cost them dearly. Although Shkupi played more offensively in the first game, we believe that this time the situation will be quite different.
Dinamo Zagreb Team News
Dinamo started the new season with a lot of trouble. Although they had deficit 2:0 against Lokomotiva in the first round, in the end, they somehow managed to win 3:2. In the second round, they were much more successful, since they defeated Slaven away with a score of 5:1.
Given that they have been very successful in the European qualifiers for years, they are expected to be successful in the Champions League qualifiers this year as well.
Although they had the advantage twice in the first game, the players of the team from Zagreb did not manage to reach the desired goal. That draw in the first match created a lot of pressure for the players and the coach of this club, and the entire football public in Croatia expects them to justify the epithet of huge favorites, and to advance to the third round of qualifications.
Sometimes such matches are the most difficult to play, and we are sure that it will not be easy for the players of the visiting team, especially if the home team decides to play a totally defensive and more patient game.
In the only mutual duel so far, it was 2:2.

Shkupi vs. Dinamo Zagreb Prediction
The home team has an active result, they will have a lot of support from the stands, and since they cannot match a better opponent offensively, we believe that they will play this match very patiently, and that they will wait for a possible opportunity in one of the counterattacks.
We expect this to be a very difficult and uncertain match, in which one goal could very easily decide the question of the winner.
