RB Salzburg vs Dinamo Zagreb Prediction: CL

Group E looks to be at a pivotal stage coming into the third round of fixtures this week. RB Salzburg currently sits third in the standings, but they could move to top spot if they are able to pick up a home victory against Dinamo Zagreb this week.

Champions League Preview

Things look very tight in Group E coming into the third matchday, as just three points separates the teams sitting bottom and top in the current standings. Many had written off Dinamo Zagreb and RB Salzburg’s chances before a ball was kicked in the competition this term, but they already look to be in a menacing position to cause a shock.

Zagreb come into this fixture in a slightly strong position, as they sit second in the standings, and are just a single point behind AC Milan, who sit top of the standings. Dinamo has won once and lost once in their opening two fixtures. They were beaten in their latest fixture in the competition, as they lost 3-1 at the San Siro against AC Milan. The only goal for Dinamo in that defeat was scored by Mislav Orsic in the 56th minute.

RB Salzburg may be best placed at this stage of the competition to reach the next round, as they have picked up draws in their opening two fixtures against AC Milan and Chelsea. Victory on Wednesday could be enough to take them to the top of the standings this week. 

They performed excellently in their previous fixture at Stamford Bridge, as they picked up a 1-1 draw in London against Chelsea. Salzburg hit back in fine fashion in that fixture, with Noah Okafor scoring the equalising goal in the 75th minute. However, a first win must come in this fixture if they have ambitions of reaching the next round.

RB Salzburg vs Dinamo Zagreb Head to Head 

Salzburg and Zagreb have only met on two previous occasions in European competition. Both fixtures were won by the Austrian side, and both came in the group stages of the Europa League in 2014-15. Salzburg won their exact fixture 4-2.

RB Salzburg vs Dinamo Zagreb Prediction 

This could be a huge fixture for both sides in the group stages this season. However, we like the chances of Salzburg getting the victory, and we could see them achieving that with a 2-0 scoreline.
