Dinamo Zagreb vs Genk Match Analysis and Prediction

The Europa League’s Group H will be back in action this week with Dinamo Zagreb aiming to go a step closer to securing their qualification to the knockout stage of the competition.

However, Genk will have the chance to overtake them in the table if they will be able to get a victory on Thursday night.

Mixed fortunes have followed Dinamo Zagreb in the Europa League so far this season, winning half of their games while losing the other two, yet they still managed to secure a strong position.

They are currently at the second position in the table and a victory in this match would leave them in need of just a point to secure a place in the next round during the final game of the group if Rapid Wien can beat West Ham United.

Damir Krznar’s team were at their best form during the previous match in the competition as they took a 3-1 victory over Rapid Wien with goals from Komnen Andric, Josip Sutalo and Bruno Petkovic.

However, Dinamo Zagreb have since failed to win a game when returning to league football, having lost to NK Lokomotiva and drawing with Osijek.

The defeat for Genk on Thursday is one of two occasions where they have lost in the Europa League this season, having managed to win just one game.

The victory came on the opening match, and it is the only time Genk have been able to keep a clean sheet in the competition this season.

John van den Brom’s side has a lot to work on in their defence, having conceded eight goals so far which is more than anybody else in Group H, and has damaged their goal difference.

It could prove a vital thing due to how close the gap is between the teams, but a lose would put an end to their hopes of qualifying into the next round.

Dinamo Zagreb news

Petkovic is likely to retain his place in the first XI playing just behind Andric. However, Dinamo Zagreb will be missing Arjan Ademi who has been struggling with an ankle injury since October, while they will be expected to keep their trusted 4-2-3-1 formation for this game.

Genk news

Genk is likely to keep a 4-2-3-1 to allow them to battle their opponents on a man to man basis. Painstil and Junya Ito will provide the width all through the game, while they will be attempting to give service to Paul Onuachu who is expected to lead the line.

Prediction and Odds

A victory for Dinamo Zagreb in this match could be vital for them to progress if the other results favour them, and that is enough to get them to score.

Genk have had defensive problems in the competition and that is most likely going to be the same case in this game. So we can predict a home win.

Odds: 2.45 3.50 2 2.95
