Dinamo Zagreb vs Tottenham Match Analysis and Prediction

Tottenham is full of hope to make it to the Europa League quarter-finals this week in their second leg trip to Croatian capital against Dinamo Zagreb. The match schedules for Thursday at Stadion Maksimir, with a kickoff at 8:55 pm.

Spurs head into the clash on the back of a 2-0 first-leg win thanks to a Harry Kane brace. However, the side head into the match on the back of a defeat in the North London Derby.

Jose Mourinho was highly anticipating for the North London Derby with only one loss in his entire managerial career against Arsenal – during his tenure at Manchester United. It was good news when captain Pierre Erick Aubayemany dropped from the starting lineup due to disciplinary action.

It was a strong starting XI consisting of Son, Kane, Bale and Mourra. It started a bit slow but made up following a beautiful rabona by Erick Lamela. However, things changed after a quick response by Martin Odegaard and a penalty converted by Lacazette.

Moreover, the Lillywhites have much to look for with an EFL Cup final against Manchester City. It might mark their 13-year wait for silverware. Things are not that rosy for the opponents, especially after head coach Zoran Mamic resigned to serve a four-year and eight-month suspension for committing fraud.
